They can also result from inadequate training, a lack of the recommended safety equipment required for the job or there may have been faulty or dangerous machinery involved.

However you were injured, our expert personal injury solicitors can help you get the care, support and compensation you deserve.

Your employer is legally obliged to provide a work environment that is safe to work in and reduce the risk of accidents happening. The majority of employers live up to these legal obligations but unfortunately there are some who do not fulfil their responsibilities and who are not only breaking the law, they are also putting your life (and the lives of your co-workers and members of the public) at risk.
