What is Employer Negligence?
If you have been emotionally or physically hurt in your workplace, you may be wondering if you have a case for proving that your employer was responsible for your injury or damage. If handling such a situation, it is possible that the company may have failed to protect and ensure proper working conditions for you to be safe and work in a secure environment. This is scientifically known as negligence. To prove workplace negligence, you must show evidence that the employer did something inadequate and that this directly led to your injury. More specifically, these four elements must be present in your case:
- the victim was owed a particular standard of care and safety that should have been provided by the employer;
- this duty of care was breached by the employer;
- the victim was injured, and there is clear evidence of the injury;
- the damage was directly due to the company breach.
