Workplace Accidents: Employers' Duty of Care

UK employers have a duty of care to ensure that their work environment meets minimum safety standards. You may have been provided with faulty equipment to work with or you may not have received adequate training for your job. If you have sustained an injury that could otherwise have been prevented you can claim compensation by contacting our Work Accident Solicitors.

Employers must have insurance cover for these types of accidents and injuries and they have to keep your job open for you. If you decide to claim compensation for your injuries the employer is not allowed to treat you in a way that is different than if you had not claimed for the accident.

Forbes Solicitors has a team of specialist Employers Liability Lawyers dealing with compensation claims representing the employees of all types of companies ranging from small business through to large multinational companies.
