Accident At Work Claims

Have you had an accident at work? Accidents in the workplace can and do happen as a result of your employers or co-worker’s negligence.

Frequently Asked Questions

How do I make a compensation claim?

If you’re injured because of an accident at work, there are a few important things you should do before contacting us:

  • Record your accident with your employer and ensure it’s logged in an accident book
  • Take photos of your injury and where it took place, make detailed notes and get the details of witnesses
  • Make an appointment to see a doctor so that they can record details of the accident in your medical records and treat the injury
  • Check your contract of employment to see your entitlements for pay and benefits if you are unable to work
  • If you’re a trade union member, notify your representative

The next step is to get in touch with us to see if you have a claim. It’s best to get legal advice as soon as possible so that we can obtain crucial evidence and because there may be time limits.

We offer a Free No Obligation Case Review so that we can understand more about the accident circumstances and to advise you on whether or not you have a claim.

We will guide and support you throughout the personal injury claims process, dealing directly with your employers and their insurance company on your behalf to secure compensation for your injuries quickly and amicably.

How much will my claim be worth?

The value of every accident at work compensation claim depends on the seriousness of the injury as well as the chances of you making a full recovery.

In handling your claim, we will also look at other financial aspects such as medical expenses, travel costs and loss of earnings you may have had as a result of the accident. We will also factor into the value of your claim any long term medical expenses that you may incur for life-changing injuries that require ongoing medical treatment.

We will also seek to obtain interim payments where possible to help you to avoid financial hardship caused by an accident at work that wasn’t your fault.

Whatever the nature of your injury, our aim is to get you the highest amount of compensation as quickly and stress-free as possible so that you can get your life back on track.

How long do I have to make a claim?

For the majority of cases, any claim for an accident at work compensation must be made within three years of the date of the accident. There are, however, some exemptions to this rule in instances whereby you may be able to make a claim for an accident dating back further. As specialist personal injury lawyers, we will be able to advise you on your rights.

Will I lose my job if I make an accident at work claim?

No. Seeking compensation for an accident at work that was not your fault is not grounds for dismissal. Your employer will have insurance to cover your accident claim. For the most part, your solicitor will be dealing with the insurance company. Watch this short video to learn more.
