Accident at work claim FAQs
Employers have a duty of care towards their employees. By law, they must follow general health and safety regulations – such as The Health and Safety at Work Act of 1974. And if your employer has breached those regulations, they’ve put you at risk and can be held responsible for your accident.
It’s simple. If the accident occurred in the last three years, and it wasn’t your fault, you’re entitled to start an accident at work claim. This applies for all industries, including those which are inherently dangerous – such as construction, energy and steel production. Even if you work in a high-risk environment, most accidents are preventable, and you’re still eligible to seek compensation.
Thousands of people suffer an injury at work every year. But not many step forward to make a claim, usually because they don’t realise that’s an option. If you’re in any doubt about your eligibility, it’s always worth getting in touch for advice. That’s exactly what we’re here for.
The easiest way to claim for an accident at work is to contact our specialist work accident lawyers.
Following a free initial consultation, we’ll start by advising on both your eligibility to claim and the likelihood of you winning the case. We understand, you may have reservations about claiming against your employer. And that’s perfectly normal. So, we’ll never pressure you. It’s up to you whether you go ahead and you can take as much time as you need to make the decision.
If you do wish to proceed, our team can then oversee the entire claims process on your behalf, gathering evidence and negotiating a settlement with your employer’s insurance company. We may ask you to attend a medical assessment and provide information to support your claim. But other than that, you can leave the rest to us and focus on what truly matters – making a full recovery.
