There is no doubt about it, the workplace is now safer than it was 20 years ago. Safety plans are in place to minimise the risk of injury to employees. Everyone is alert to health and safety issues. Gone are the careless days when safety was a secondary issue.
Why is this?
It’s because too many people were being injured, even killed, at work. There were too many insurance pay-outs made to the victims and their families. The insurance companies and employers had to make sure that changes were made to reduce the amount of claims and the amount of pay-outs.
This is because the injured parties went to solicitors who successfully sued on their behalf. This resulted in pressure to improve safety and minimise the amount of accidents and injuries at work.
However, workplace accidents do still happen.
Employers operate safety files and record accidents as they occur to avoid similar occurrences in the future.This pressure needs to be kept on employers and insurers to keep workplace safe.
If there is an accident victims need a solicitor to obtain the maximum compensation and to have a medical expenses paid and to cover any loss of earnings. An experienced solicitor knows how to present a claim and get the best advantage for you.
