You can help create safer environments by claiming
Many people don’t realise that access to justice is an important part of our society and culture. You are likely aware that when you are injured because of the negligence of another, you are entitled to compensation. This goes much further than claiming for compensation. It actually plays a vital role in improving our public streets, places of work and health service.
An often overlooked consequence of claiming against an organisation is that they are then compelled to make improvements to ensure there are no repeat incidents. This is often what happens with both accidents at work and medical negligence cases. Subsequently, every claim, no matter how minor, protects other people that could have suffered similar injuries in the same manner.
Over the years, this trend has led to small and gradual improvements in health and safety. Despite this, there is still much work to do. Through regular risk assessments and litigation when it’s due, we can all work towards creating safer environments for all.
