Christmas Party Season is just around the corner.
It’s a chance for us all to let our hair down, get on the dance floor, have a cheeky glass of fizz and enjoy ourselves. But it’s also a time for silly accidents and unnecessary injuries.
Whilst you can be blamed in some instances for an injury you might suffer following a shot (or three), it’s important to remember that not all accidents are your own fault. In some instances, you might be injured by somebody who is acting during the course of their employment, and if that proves to be the case you might have a claim against their employer. The employer is far more likely to be in a position to compensate you via their insurers, as individuals rarely insure against such incidents.
It is sometimes a complex question, and it’s called vicarious liability.
So please take care this Christmas.
If you are an employer seeking advice on your responsibilities during the festive period, please contact our expert team who is on hand to offer all the guidance you need.
And if an accident does befall you that wasn’t your fault, no matter what it is or where it happened, call St Helens Law. We are here to give you sound advice about whether you’d be entitled to make a claim for any injuries you might have experienced whilst trying to enjoy the festive season.
