Is it safe to say that someone was to blame for your damage?We understand you may think that it’s difficult to tell whether anyone was to blame for your accident. While each case is unique, if you've had a personal injury at work because of dangerous practices, lack of training or an absence of help, then your employer might be to blame for your accident. For instance, you might not have been given the right training on how to use equipment and do your job securely. You may have incurred peronsal injuries because you had been given an assignment that should have taken at least two individuals.

- You were not provided the correct equipment for you to safely care for a service user
- Your employer failing to have the correct staff numbers for a shift or activity
- Your employer failing to maintain and regularly check equipment
- Your employer not providing the correct personal protective equipment (PPE)
