Mr S was working inside a vehicle that was parked on a ramp when his accident occurred. A colleague lifted up the ramp without informing Mr R so when Mr R tried to exit the vehicle he dropped ten feet to the ground. Mr R suffered a broken wrist concussion and damage to his eye. Thankfully Mr S was amply compensated for the injuries he sustained.
A duty of care is a much used legal term which comes into play when a company or organisation does something which could be reasonably expected to cause another person harm either intentionally or through neglect. This harm could be either a physical injury the most common type we see here or it could be a mental injury or the financial consequences of an accident could be harmful to the individual and his or her family.
In a workplace an employer must provide a minimum of reasonable care towards all its employees. If this duty of care is neglected and an accident subsequently occurs employees are further covered by being able to take their employer to court to get financial compensation for any harm caused by the employer’s negligence or non-adherence to their duty of care.
