Employers Duties

Employers have many obligations towards their employees like maintaining safety in the premises and providing workers with adequate tools and equipment. One of the most important employer's duties is to maintain proper standards of safety at the workplace and to strictly adhere to the government safety laws.

Any employer who fails to maintain adequate standards of safety at the workplace can be held liable by the employee for any injuries at work in a compensation claim
Injuries at work to the employee can be caused when:
When an employer fails to train his employees and to guide them properly about the use of certain dangerous machines. These machines when not operated in the right way by the employee can cause serious accidents which can even involve loss of limbs for the employee.
When an employer uses toxic substances like benzene and asbestos in the factory premises in excessive amounts.
Due to non-adherence of the health and the safety regulations by the employer, employees can get hurt on construction and building sites.
Many employees also receive injuries at work when their employer uses faulty equipment in the company.

If you have suffered an injury at work due to your employers negligence you have the right to sue the employer for compensation. Cooks Legal can help you pursue a case for your personal injury. We work on a no win, no fee basis which means that the employee does not have to pay our costs. We receive our costs from the employer’s insurance company in the event of winning a case.
