Many people do not realise that if they are assaulted by someone who is working at the time the assault takes place then their attacker's employer is likely to be legally liable for the assault and could be required to pay you compensation.
Case study of a shop worker assault claim where the victim won compensation for psychological injury. The claim was based on the failure of the store that employed her to take adequate steps to protect her and provide support following a series of incidents at the shop where she worked.
Statistics released by the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) revealed that slips, trips and falls at work are the single most common types of injury sustained at work. In fact, they account for over a third of all major work-related injuries and half of all reported injuries to members of the public. Such injuries cost employers over £512m a year in lost production.
