    "If you've been injured through no fault of your own you could be entitled to compensation. If you're unsure if you could claim, I recommend you call Accident Advice Helpline."

    Esther Rantzen

    How can I claim for an injury sustained in the workplace?

    In 2013/2014 alone, more than 28.2 million working days were lost in the UK due to work-related illness or injury, according to the Health and Safety Executive (HSE). If you’ve been involved in an accident at work and you are thinking about pursuing a claim for compensation, Accident Advice Helpline can help to make the process simple and hassle-free.

    What causes injuries at work?

    There are lots of different types of accident which can occur in workplaces and some jobs carry a much higher risk of injury and illness than others. According to the HSE, statistically, you are more likely to suffer a work accident when working in agriculture, construction and manufacturing than other field of work; however, accidents can happen anywhere and even the safest place can harbour hidden dangers.

    Common examples of accidents in the workplace include:

    • Falls from height
    • Injuries caused by operating machinery, such a vibration finger and loss of hearing
    • Slips and trips
    • Injuries caused by moving vehicles
    • Stamping and injuries caused by livestock
    • Moving and handling accidents
    • Cuts and lacerations

    Injuries sustained by workers can range from minor scrapes and bruising to serious, potentially life-threatening injuries, such as head and spinal injuries, paralysis and loss of limbs.

    I think I’ve got a valid claim: What should I do now?

    If you’ve been injured in the workplace, the chances are that you’ve already been through enough stress taking time off and dealing with illness and pain, so that the last thing you want is to worry about the claims process.
