    "If you've been injured through no fault of your own you could be entitled to compensation. If you're unsure if you could claim, I recommend you call Accident Advice Helpline."

    Men more likely to claim injury compensation at work


    If you have been injured in a workplace accident, did you make a claim for compensation? That’s the question Accident Advice Helpline asked people in our most recent survey into accidents at work, and the results were very interesting indeed. We discovered that men are more likely than women to claim injury compensation at work. Almost 20% of men surveyed had made a claim for personal injury compensation after a workplace accident, compared to just 16% of women. Of these figures, 16% of men and almost 12% of women said their claims had been successful.

    Should you make a claim?

    We wondered why anybody would fail to claim injury compensation at work after being injured in an accident that was somebody else’s fault – so we asked people. Almost a quarter of people who responded said that they were worried about their employer’s reaction; a fairly valid concern. But you can’t lose your job just by making a personal injury claim. In fact that’s why employers have liability insurance in place, to pay out in the event of a claim by an employee. If you have been injured due to your employer’s negligence – for example if they have breached health and safety regulations – then you’re entitled to make a claim, and you shouldn’t feel worried or guilty about it.

    12% of people we surveyed said the cost of claiming had deterred them from contacting a personal injury lawyer. Whilst there are lawyers out there charging expensive upfront legal fees, you can get in touch with Accident Advice Helpline to make a 100% no win, no fee claim.
