Have you suffered from a workplace injury? Were you hit by a vehicle or involved in an accident with machinery or a forklift truck? Did you slip, trip or fall at work? If you have had an accident in the last three years which required medical attention, we would like to speak to you about your right to compensation. Making a claim with our help could leave you with a substantial amount of compensation.
Common accidents in the workplace
Although accidents at work are declining each year due to more and more awareness of health and safety, when accidents do happen these are some of the most common types:
- Falling from height (ladders, roofing, scaffolding, stairs)
- Tripping over hazards
- Slipping on wet floors
- Vehicle collisions
- Fork lift truck accidents
- Burns and scalds
If you have been affected by any of these accidents or similar and want to know more about making a claim for compensation, call Accident Advice Helpline. Our expert advisors can answer your questions and guide you through the process of making a claim. We can even tell you more about what to expect with your employer. Many victims do not know that their employers should be covered by accident insurance so if you make a claim, it will already be covered by provisions which should be legally in place.
What qualifies me to claim for a workplace injury?
To be eligible to make a claim your accident must have happened in the last three years, must not have been your fault and been directly responsible for your injuries. Your injuries should have been looked at by a doctor too.
If you would like to find out if you are eligible to make a claim, you can call Accident Advice Helpline and speak to one of our team about your individual situation.
