Claims Due to Negligent Workmates. Accidents at work can happen for various reasons, and sometimes, they occur due to the negligent actions of a workmate or colleague. In such cases, you may be entitled to compensation for the injuries and losses you’ve suffered. At Cohen Cramer Solicitors, we specialize in handling these cases and have the expertise to guide you through the process. In this article, we’ll discuss the concept of vicarious liability, what can be recovered, and how we can assist you with a No Win No Fee agreement.
Vicarious Liability and Employer Responsibility
In the legal realm, vicarious liability holds employers accountable for the negligent actions of their employees committed whilst acting in the course of their employment. This ensures that victims of workplace accidents can seek compensation from their employer, even if the negligent party was a colleague or workmate. If a colleague’s negligence has caused you injury and loss, you can pursue a claim against your employer.
What Can Be Recovered for Claims Due to Negligent Workmates
When pursuing a claim for injury and loss caused by a negligent colleague, you can seek compensation for:
- Pain and Suffering: Compensation for the physical and emotional distress experienced as a result of the accident.
- Medical Expenses: Coverage for current and future medical treatments and rehabilitation.
- Lost Earnings: Recovery for income lost due to the injury.
- Special Damages: Compensation for out-of-pocket expenses incurred as a result of the incident.
