Have you been injured in an accident at work? If so then it could be that your employer is to blame, which means you could be entitled to claim personal injury compensation. This applies to you no matter where you work – in a shop, a bar, an office or even on a building site. Filling out an employer injury claim report can often seem daunting, but if you’ve been injured and somebody else is at fault, you’ll need the services of a lawyer specialising in personal injury claims.
Accident Advice Helpline can help you to fill out an employer injury claim report and provide confidential, no-obligation advice to help you decide whether or not to proceed with a claim after your accident.
How complex is an employer injury claim report?
Paperwork after an accident can sometimes seem confusing, but these reports are simply designed to act as a record of what has happened. They’ll usually ask for information about how your accident happened, your place of work and your role, and what injuries you sustained, as well as any medical treatment you have received. It’s far easier to fill out a report like this with the support of a personal injury lawyer, as you have the opportunity to ask any questions about the claims process and what happens next, whilst benefiting from their expert knowledge. Accident Advice Helpline has over 16 years’ experience helping people claim compensation after accidents at work and we have a great track record of success.
