Keeping that in mind, read on to discover the steps you should take when making workplace accidents claims in Newbridge.
Compensation claims in Newbridge for accidents at work
There are various things you need to do if you have been involved in an accident at work that was not your fault, such as:
- Seek medical attention – This might seem pointless advice as you would expect anyone that is injured to seek medical attention, but that is not always the case. Some victims think they are OK, only to discover later that there were injuries they were unaware of. It always pays to get yourself checked out after an accident, and the doctors report will be needed for you claim.
- Complete the accident book – All employers have to keep an accident book, whether that is digital or manual. Any accident, no matter how minor, should be recorded and if your employer does not make the entry, make sure you do. This can be important at a later date, and is one of the things HSE will be looking for if they are called to investigate your accident.
- Keep proof of expenses – Accidents always create extra expenses, but this can be recouped as part of a successful claim. You do have to prove them though, so keep receipts for everything you have to spend that is injury related.
