They represent the injured person (known as the Claimant) and negotiate with the relevant party the claim is being made against, such as the insurers of the party that caused the Claimants injury (known as the Defendant).

As an employee, your employer is supposed to provide you with a safe and hygienic environment in which to do your job. Your place of work should be safe for you to move about and free from hazards. If you use equipment, machinery or vehicles, these must be kept in a good state of repair with any servicing necessary being carried out on a regular basis. You should also be properly instructed in how to carry out your job in a way which is safe to do so and which takes account of guidance from the Health and Safety Executive or necessary legal requirements.
