Your employer has a duty of care to ensure you have a safe working environment.
Your employer has a duty of care to ensure you have a safe working environment. Under the Management of Health & Safety at Work Regulations 1999, your employer must:
• Assess any risks to the health and safety of its workforce and act upon any risks they identify
• Appoint someone to oversee workplace health and safety
• Provide workers with information and training on health and safety
• Have a written health and safety policy
If you are injured in an accident at work and your employer has failed to take proper steps to ensure your safety, you could be entitled to make a claim for compensation.
You may have needed time off work, have had to take a lesser role as a result of your injury or even been unable to return to work, all of which can result in a loss of earnings for which you may be entitled to receive compensation.
You may be concerned that if you bring a claim you may lose your job but this is not the case as there are protections in place to ensure that this cannot happen.
If you have been injured at work then you should speak to one of our civil litigation specialists who can provide you with friendly and straightforward advice on the merits of your case and what steps to take next.
I know that you are all just doing your job, however you have given me great support through this difficult time and it’s great to feel that you’re in my corner
We were both completely happy and satisfied with the outcome. We cannot have hoped for a better outcome despite the circumstances and the potential outcome. We cannot thank Ciaran and Wheldon Law enough.
Excellent, professional service throughout. Would use Wheldon Law solicitors in the future if required. Would also recommend to family and friends.
I cannot thank you enough. You have all been amazing. Brilliant service.
I would definitely advise others of the excellent service that I received and would recommend your law firm – thank you.
Hopefully I will not need the services of a solicitor again but if I do I would not hesitate to contact your company.
I’ve never needed a solicitor before so was unsure as to what to expect. Tina put me as much at ease as possible and was very friendly and honest with what she told me. Thank you so much!
I found the advice and service provided very friendly and comforting at a time of extreme distress and all matters were dealt with very discreetly and professionally.
Gareth did a great job.
Very happy with the result and I know this is down to Wheldon Law, thus very happy with the service. Thank you.
