If you’ve suffered an accident, whether at work, on the roads or on the streets, you need to prove that someone else was responsible. Compensation isn’t automatically available; you first need to prove that the employer, the other vehicle driver or the occupier of the premises was at fault in some way. When the other party owes you a duty of care and they fail to meet the required standard, you may be able to recover some compensation. That often isn’t easy. The law can be complicated, especially where the accident occurred in the workplace. You need to get good legal advice from a firm of specialist injury lawyers to advise you as soon as possible after the accident has occurred.
