Under the employers liability act of 1969 most employers are required by law to insure against liability for injury or disease to their employees as a result of doing their job. There is a law called the Employer’s Liability (Compulsory Insurance) Act which basically means that your employer has to have liability insurance of an appropriate level to cover against any work related accidents or illnesses. Your employer should have a copy of their liability insurance in the workplace which is available for all staff members to see.
Any accidents which occur either at work or in a public place like an ankle injury or leg injury which are not your fault is challenged by the highly skilled team of solicitors to ensure maximum compensation for any claim in the UK.
Your employer should have a valid and up to date certificate of employer’s liability insurance. On this certificate the minimum lever of cover and the companies covered by the policy should be stated clearly. Just because your employer has a certificate of employer’s liability insurance does not mean that they have the right to ignore health and safety guidelines or make employees use faulty of defective equipment; the safety of all employees should always be first and foremost. Some employees may have received a copy of the certificate electronically; sine 2008 this method of displaying the certificate has been acceptable.
You are entitled to be safe in any public or work environment and any non fault accident that occurs; Michael Lewin would love to hear about it. They work on a no win no fee basis so you always get 100% of the compensation.
