  1. These types of accident at work can be prevented if we follow safety measures at all times and employer must provide a healthy and safe workplace for his or her employees. If this is not met, and an accident at happens and one of an employee sustained an injury due to employers negligence. He claim a compensation via no win no fee litigation against his or her employer.
