I’ve had an Accident at Work, What Now?
No matter where you work, you are entitled to certain standards of safety. Unfortunately, some employers fail to follow the government’s health and safety guidelines and employees are injured as a result. If you are involved in an accident at work it is important that you:
- Let your employer know as soon as possible. If you are unable to inform your boss about the incident, ask a colleague to do so on your behalf.
- Seek medical attention straight away. Injuries, especially those involving blows to the head can be deceptive and although you may not think you require medical attention, your injuries may be more serious than you first believe. Medical records can also help with making a successful claim, so keep any copies of medical records associated with your accident at work.
- Ask your employer to note the incident in the company’s accident book. Smaller companies may not have one, and if this is the case, record all relevant information about the incident in a document and send it to your employer, keeping a copy for yourself.
- Contact us, an experienced personal injury solicitor known for achieving the best results in the minimum amount of time.
Why Should I claim Compensation?
Many people feel guilty about submitting a claim for compensation after being involved in an accident at work, but these feelings can be misplaced. Your employer should have insurance to cover incidents such as accidents in the workplace and compensation will not therefore come directly from their pocket. As the injured party, you may find yourself struggling financially due to being unable to get back to work and compensation can help with any costs associated with the accident. Submitting a compensation claim can also highlight any dangers within the workplace, making your employer aware of any changes that need to be made to ensure the safety of all employees.
