If you have suffered a neck injury at work you should speak to Michael Lewin Solicitors in London about claiming compensation. Do not delay making your claim as there are time restrictions relating to claiming for accidents at work.
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.
All employers have a duty towards their employees to keep them safe; if your employer has failed to adhere to health and safety laws someone could get hurt.
