No matter whether you work in a factory, an office or on a construction site, if you are injured in the workplace and it was no fault of your own, you should be able to make a claim for personal injury compensation.
Accident Advice Helpline will help you to do this and we have been doing so for 13 years.
Accidents at work
Workplace accidents are responsible for over 22 million sick days every year, and many of these are a result of negligence on the part of the employer.
Your employer has a duty of care to all of his or her employees. When the employer fails to provide this care, the results can be serious.
Here are 3 examples of injuries in the workplace that could result in a financial compensation claim for the employee:
- You work in an office and notice that the carpet tiles are not secure in one of the corridors. You mention this to your employer but he does nothing. A week later you trip over these tiles and break your ankle.
- You drive a van for a living and your boss is responsible for servicing the vehicle. On the way to a delivery, the car’s brakes fail and you have an accident.
- You work on a construction site and your employer is responsible for ensuring the electrical equipment is regularly checked. When operating the electrical saw, you receive a nasty electrical shock.
How to claim
All 3 of the above examples show that the employer has displayed negligence and the employee has been injured as a result. If any of these accidents happens to you, you need to get witnesses as soon as possible.
Seek medical advice and ask for a medical report from the doctor or hospital. You need to prove that this accident was not your fault. Contact Accident Advice Helpline and we will help you to make a claim for financial compensation.
Who pays compensation?
Do not feel guilty, and just remember that you have been injured through no fault of your own. You may lose future earnings and could face a lot of pain in the future. Your employer has indemnity insurance in place to deal with this type of claim.
