By the very nature of accidents, they can happen any time, anywhere, and under any circumstance. Nobody is prone to being involved in an accident, but they can still take you by surprise and leave you feeling very unsettled. Accidents can also cause injuries which should always be assessed and treated by a medical professional.
One place that an accident may occur is in the workplace. This is why an accident at work compensation provider is available to those who have suffered a personal injury at work – as long as it fulfils the following criteria:
- It occurred within the past three years
- It was someone else’s fault
- It required medical attention, such as from your GP or your local A&E
How do I find an accident at work compensation provider?
If you have been injured at work, you should firstly ensure that you receive medical attention for your injuries – this is a vital step, not only safeguarding your own health but your doctor will also be able to provide a report with details of your injury which can be used during the claims process.
You must also ensure that your accident has been recorded in the accident log book, which is required under health and safety standards for any workplace with ten or more employees. If your company employs fewer than ten people, you should check with the relevant colleague as they may still keep a log book as best practice. Once your accident is recorded in the log book, this provides evidence that your injury has occurred, documenting when, where and how it happened.
You should also take the contact details of any witnesses to your accident, and take a picture of where your accident happened if it visually describes the circumstances. This will help with your accident work compensation claim.
