You may be looking for an industrial accident report format though there is not a standard one as each business has their own process of logging and reporting accidents in the workplace. You may find it more helpful and useful to speak to an experienced law firm, such as Accident Advice Helpline, instead. Our legal experts can talk you through what steps to take after an accident and we may even find that you are entitled to compensation.
Are you eligible to claim?
In order to be awarded compensation you must first be eligible to claim. Victims of accidents must be able to agree to the following statements in order to be eligible to claim:
- Your accident was not your fault
- Someone else was to blame for the accident
- The accident resulted in injury
- The injury was looked at by a medical professional
- The accident happened in the last three years
You can check your eligibility online with the help of our 30-second claim calculator which will determine whether you are likely to have a claim, based on the information you provide. If you do have a claim, the calculator can also estimate how much compensation you could be awarded.
Do I need to be aware of any kind of industrial accident report format?
Your employer should be responsible for any logging or reporting of your accident, and you can enquire as to what the process is as it differs vastly between industry and workplace. It may be referred to your HR department and you may even be asked to fill out some paperwork yourself.
If you would like further guidance or information about your rights and whether an accident at work could result in a compensation payout, call our helpline today.
