    "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."

    Accident at work claim

    A successful accident at work claim can be made by any employee who has suffered an injury in the workplace, regardless of the industry or sector they work in. Claims can be made against a past or present employer – as long as the accident occurred within the last three years, the employer was at fault, and the resulting injury required medical attention.

    If you have suffered an industrial disease then you have three years from the date of your diagnosis in which to claim compensation.

    As with any personal injury type, a successful accident at work claim can vary considerably, resulting in different amounts of compensation. Injuries may include:

    • Industrial deafness.
    • Asbestos-related illness.
    • Construction site accidents.
    • Slips, trips and falls.
    • Work-induced stress.
    • Vibration white finger.
    • Repetitive strain injury.
    • Machinery and fork lift truck accidents.
    • Falls from height.

    An injury will affect areas of the body with differing severity depending on the circumstances of the accident. It is this that gives an indication of how much you may be entitled to claim. By using a calculator such as Accident Advice Helpline’s 30-second test, you can quickly get an idea of the compensation figures your case may be dealing with.
