Accidents at Work

If you have been involved in an accident at work in the last 3 years, then you could be entitled to make a work accident compensation claim for your injuries.

Every employer is required by law to provide a safe working environment as part of the Health & Safety Regulations. If the negligence of an employer or colleague has resulted in an accident, then we will fight to ensure you get the compensation that you deserve.

An accident at work is not always the fault of an employer. Accidents can often be caused by other employees who have not been trained or supervised properly. Either way, it can result in you not being able to do your job properly, having to take time off work, or even a permanent injury.

Some of the types of accidents of we deal with include:

  • Faulty Equipment 
  • Fork Lift Truck accidents
  • Slip, trip and fall accident 
  • Heavy lifting and lack of manual handling training accidents
  • Lack of protective equipment to conduct a task
  • Repetitive Strain Injury
  • Making a Work Accident Compensation Claim

If have been injured at work and want to make a claim then you need to be aware that every employer is required by law to have Employers Liability Insurance which protects them from any financial losses in the event of a work accident. There are certain steps which can help your claim and these include:

1. Notify a senior member of staff or union representative of the accident and ensure that an accident at work report form is completed providing a detailed description regarding the circumstances of the accident.

2. Take a photo of the scene of the accident.

3. Take details of any witnesses to the accident.
