Work Accident Compensation

Work accidents result in injuries to thousands of employees in the UK every year, ranging from minor cuts or bruises to serious injuries and fatalities. Where an injury is caused by negligence on the part of an employer or fellow employee the injured person is likely to have a legal right to Work Accident Compensation.

All employers have a duty to protect their workers from injury or disease by, amongst other things :-

1. Providing safe systems of work
2. Providing safe premises
3. Providing plant, tools and equipment which are safe, properly maintained and suitable for the job
4. Providing competent employees
5. Providing adequate and appropriate personal equipment eg. goggles, ear protectors, gloves, hard hats, masks

6. Providing adequate and proper supervision and training

Work Accident Compensation claims may be brought against an employer for breach of statutory or Common Law duty or, frequently, both. A breach of statutory duty may also result in a fine whether or not an accident results.

Mrs B was crossing a pedestrian crossing pushing her grandson in a baby buggy when she was knocked to the ground by a car driven by the defendant. The accident caused a complex fracture to her right foot.   Liability was denied as both parties claimed the lights were in their favour. At trial Cooks were successful in proving Mrs B’s case and she was awarded £90,000.00.
