All employers have a duty to keep you safe whilst at work.
This includes whilst you are out of work but still working during the course of your employment.
There are a number of different health and safety pieces of legislations that your employer should comply with. If they don’t then you may be able to make a claim for compensation against them for any injury that you have sustained whilst at work or during the course of your employment.
Even if you do not consider yourself to be ‘employed’ and are deemed by your employer as being self-employed, or a contractor or consultant it may still be possible to make a claim if in the eyes of the law you should properly be deemed to be employed.
Accidents in the workplace can happen for a number of reasons but if you have had an accident whilst at work or during the course of your employment then get in touch with us as we may be able to recover you compensation not only for the injury you have sustained but any earnings you have lost as well as other financial losses you may not have anticipated being able to claim for.
