If you’ve been involved in an accident at work, or you’ve been hit by another driver, you may have a case for compensation. The most common claim for compensation is made by those who have been injured as a result of another person’s negligence. Some common cases include work accident claims, slip, trip and fall claims, and road traffic accident claims.
Is there a single common claim for compensation?
In the UK, many a common claim for compensation relate to work accidents, road accidents and accidents in public places.
If you’ve been injured at work, you’ve been injured by a negligent driver, or you’ve had an accident in a public place which wasn’t your fault, you are entitled to claim compensation.
If the incident occurred within the last three years and you have proof that you were not to blame for your injuries, contact Accident Advice Helpline.
If you’ve been injured as a result of negligence on the part of another individual or a company or local authority, it is only right that you receive compensation. The money you are awarded could help towards covering bills if you have to take time off work, or paying medical fees.
What will I need to make a compensation claim?
In order to make your personal injury claim as robust as possible, its beneficial to gather as much information and evidence as possible.
If you’ve suffered a common claim for compensation, such as a work-related injury, for example, report the incident to your manager, and seek medical attention. Take photographs of any offending obstacles or equipment, for example, a broken step you may have tripped over, and ask eyewitnesses to provide their contact details.
