1. What types of injury at work claims can be made?
Accidents and injuries at work occur in many different situations. The following are the most common types of accident:-
Machinery or equipment accidents
Working at height accidents
Slipping and tripping hazards
Inadequate PPE (Personal Protective Equipment)
Construction site accidents
2. What do I need to do following a workplace accident?
You should report your accident to your supervisor or somebody in authority.
You should ensure that an Accident Report Form is completed or that your accident is entered in your employer’s Accident Book.
You should obtain the contact details of any witnesses to the accident.
If your employer does not have an Accident Book or refuses to record the accident, you should make your own record and ask your witnesses to do the same.
3. How do I know if my accident at work claim will succeed?
For a work accident claim to succeed, it needs to be proved that your employer was at fault. There are many Health & Safety Regulations which can assist in proving this. For example, if you fall whilst working at height, then the Work at Height Regulations 2005 will establish if your employer took all appropriate precautions for the work that you were doing. We will take full details from you and advise you which Regulations can assist with your claim.
4. How much accident at work compensation will I receive?
The work accident compensation claim for your injury depends upon the severity of the injury sustained. There are published guidelines that give a range of compensation for different injuries. When your claim is ready for settlement, we will carry out detailed research and advise you on the appropriate compensation you should receive. You may also be able to recover other losses such as lost wages, treatment and travel costs.
