    Apprenticeship accident claim

    Working as an apprentice can give you the skills and contacts you need to have a good start to your career; nonetheless, accidents can happen, and you may need to make an apprenticeship accident claim to obtain compensation for expenses related to your accident.

    The UK government has given support to apprenticeships in recent years, and many employers look upon apprentices as highly qualified, dedicated professionals. Although life in the workplace can have inherent risks, there are many health and safety regulations designed to safeguard your wellbeing. However, if you do have an accident during your apprenticeship, Accident Advice Helpline could help you raise a claim for accident expenses compensation, including medical fees, time taken off from work and travel costs.

    Workplace risks

    When you contact Accident Advice Helpline, one of the first things you will need to show is that another person caused your apprenticeship accident. We help people who had an accident they did not cause themselves and which happened in the last three years.

    When you work as an apprentice, it is likely that you have some knowledge of the risks in the work that you do. Nonetheless, your employer is likely to be more experienced and knowledgeable about the dangers to which you may be exposed. Moreover, your employer has a duty to look after your health and wellbeing.

    You may have been asked to use equipment that was badly maintained or faulty. Perhaps you were put in a situation where you could not perform well due to missed training sessions. Your employer may have negligently assumed that you had the skills for a particular task or may have pressured you into doing something you could not do properly. Whatever the precise nature of your apprenticeship accident, if someone else was fundamentally to blame for it, you could have a case to make an apprenticeship accident claim.
