    Accident at work compensation procedure

    Whether you have been injured at work in an accident or as result of your daily activities sustained over a long period of time, if those injuries weren’t your fault, you may be entitled to make a claim for personal injury compensation. Personal injury compensation is a legal provision designed to compensate those who have been injured as a result of another person’s negligence, and to help them deal with the costs incurred and life changes that may be necessary as a result of those injuries.

    Assessing possible employer negligence

    Before making a claim for personal injury compensation, you should discuss your case with a trained adviser who will be able to tell you if your injury could be due to employer negligence. Remember that your employer has a responsibility to make your workplace safe, and that includes training all members of staff on how to avoid making hazards for other employees. Even if you think that you have simply ‘hurt yourself,’ it could be as a direct result of your employer’s carelessness.

    Once you have established that you have a case for negligence, your solicitor will discuss the possible evidence for the case. This will include your medical records and perhaps photographs of your working environment. While you won’t usually have to attend court personally, in some unusual cases this can become necessary.

    Every case is different and while some can be resolved within a matter of months, others can take years. It’s worth bearing in mind that if other people in your workplace have been injured in the same way, they may like to take part in a group action.
