Areas of Law / Personal Injury

A friend injured his hand at work. His employers didn’t give him any training whatsoever, but when the case went to court this fact wasn’t brought up. Who is therefore liable for his injury?

Your friend’s employer will have had a legal duty to take reasonable care for his safety. It may be that this duty required the employer to give him some training, but assuming your friend was represented at the hearing it’s impossible to speculate as to why the question of training wasn’t raised. One would have thought that training was a relevant issue, and it’s important that all the relevant issues are discussed when a civil case comes to court because the grounds for an appeal are limited. If your friend was represented I would advise him to raise this point with his solicitors.
