Have you been involved in work-related accidents? Are you suffering from injuries or illness as a result of your working conditions? If you’ve answered yes to these questions, Accident Advice Helpline could help you to file a work accident claim.
We all know that accidents can happen at any time, but in the majority of cases, accidents at work can be prevented. It is the employer’s duty to ensure that their staff team are able to work effectively and efficiently in a safe environment that is suitable for the nature of the job. Employers are obliged to follow health and safety guidelines, which are designed to protect them, as well as their workforce.
The law on employee injury claims
If you have had an accident at work or you are suffering from symptoms as a result of your job or your work environment, you could be eligible for work accident compensation. There are certain restrictions and qualifying criteria in place, but if you have suffered an injury or been involved in an accident at work, which was not your fault over the course of the last three years, you may be able to make a claim.
According to Esther Rantzen, consumer champion, the law states that anyone who has suffered an injury through no fault of their own has a right to claim compensation.

In order to help you decide whether you have a case for compensation, Accident Advice Helpline provides a short, 30-second test, which prompts you to ask the following questions:
- Have you been injured in the last three years?
- Was the accident your fault or somebody else’s fault?
- Did you seek medical help after the accident?
- Where did the accident take place?
The claims process
You may assume that it’s not worth making a claim for an accident at work because the claims process is long-winded and time-consuming; however, this is simply not the case and if you have a genuine claim, it is highly likely that you will get the compensation you deserve. In the majority of cases there is no need to attend court and most of the information gathering is done over the telephone.
