Making a claim against anybody can be slightly nerve wracking, for anybody, regardless of the circumstances and who you are claiming against. If you are making a claim against an employer in Manchester, then your nerves could be really jangling.
Many people are afraid of bringing an injury claim against an employer in Manchester, assuming the worst – that they could end up losing their jobs because of it.

The assumption that the employer would turn against you is, thankfully, largely misguided. Perhaps the insurance company, the actual organisation that pays out, may grumble a little – but this is exactly what insurance companies are in business for, and why your employer pays premiums.
Your employer will not discipline you for making a legitimate injury claim. If anything, it is likely to end in them making sure that it doesn’t happen again… Win, win I think you will agree, because nobody wants to work for an employer with a poor safety record do they?
Making the claim
So, you have been in an accident at work and it was not your fault. What happens next? The first thing is to complete an accident report, and if the provisions for this are not available then you should inform your solicitor of this when the time comes.
If you haven’t already done so, visit a medical professional and seek advice about your injuries. It is important that this is done ‘on the record’ by a recognised professional, and not your mate Dave because he did a first aid course once.
After that, contact Accident Advice Helpline and we will guide you through the rest. You can contact us in a number of ways, not least of which is the telephone. There are numbers listed at the top of this screen, and you can text too if you like.
Alternatively, we have a 30 second test – where you can find out if you have a qualifying claim, and how much you could potentially receive in a compensation award.
If you prefer, there is also a quick claim form. This is really easy, and quick, to fill out. And once we have taken a look, we will give you a call for an informal chat and free, no obligation legal advice.
Accident Advice Helpline has been around since the year 2000, helping people just like you to claim the compensation that they are legally entitled to.
