    A clear and concise work injury definition


    Accidents at work can and do happen, no matter how careful you are. But what is a work injury definition? A work injury is defined as “An injury or illness that occurs in relation to an employee’s job.” Examples could include:

    • Being injured whilst driving to deliver parcels as part of your work as a courier
    • Falling from height whilst working on a building site
    • Being injured after a slip, trip or fall in an office
    • Taking time off work after suffering from stress
    • Developing an asbestos-related condition after workplace exposure to asbestos

    These are just a few examples of what could be considered as work injuries. Over the past 15 years Accident Advice Helpline has helped hundreds of employees to claim compensation after accidents at work, and we could help you too. If your employer has been negligent then you deserve to be compensated; after all, it’s their job to keep you safe at work.

    Does the work injury definition apply to your injuries?

    If you have been injured in any kind of accident at work then the work injury definition could apply. But who is responsible for your accident? Your employer has a duty to ensure that you’re safe whilst you’re at work, so if you are injured then they could be held liable. They need to make sure your working environment is safe, that any tools or equipment you use are well maintained and that you have the training needed to carry out your job safely.

    If they fail do so then you could make a claim for personal injury compensation. You don’t need to worry about losing your job – companies have employer’s liability insurance in place which will pay out in the event of a successful claim.

    Claiming compensation after a workplace accident

    If somebody else is responsible for your accident then they should be held liable. It’s likely you have taken time off work to recover from your injuries and this can affect your earnings, leaving you struggling financially. Making a claim for personal injury compensation could help you out financially during this difficult time, and Accident Advice Helpline can help you get the compensation you deserve.
