How soon should you make a claim. The sooner, the better, after your accident, is the answer. Of course, some injuries are latent and may not show up immediately, in which case you will need to claim within the statutory three-year period.

Am I eligible to claim?
Complete our 30-second online test to get an idea of how much compensation you could receive. Your accident must have happened within the last three years to meet the time limits for claiming. If you’re suffering from an industrial disease then it’s three years from the date of your diagnosis.
British Law requires companies to protect their employees and provide proper equipment and training. Furthermore, they must have liability insurance to cover accidents and injuries. You may have been injured unknowingly by negligence, passive work practices or lack of training. If you have suffered an injury and you have had to seek medical treatment, you may be eligible. If you are not sure, don’t fret on it. Call us for peace of mind.
Tips for making a claim
- Take photos of your injury for the record.
- Take photos of the location where the accident happened.
- Report to your designated Safety Officer or First Aider as soon as possible and complete any accident at work claim forms your employer uses.
- Seek medical advice as soon as possible.
- Keep a record of your expenses, travel to hospital, medications, private treatment, etc.
- If you are too incapacitated at the time to take photos, try to get a colleague or witness to do it.
