Injury compensation using accident claim solicitors in the UK
The injury an employee sustains has to be reasonably foreseeable. This means, that the lack of a safe working environment would logically cause an accident and therefore injury to the victim.
The law states that employers are obligated to report all major accidents, diseases and dangerous incidents that may have occurred to the Health and Safety Executive (HSE). In the same way employees who have sustained an injury in the workplace are advised to report the injury to their employer and also maintain a record of their report for use as evidence. Furthermore, it helps with the prevention of similar accidents occurring in the future.
Any claim made should be supported by evidence showing what has happened. As well as the report, photographs, sketches and witness statements help the success of the claim. Records of medical advice sought and financial loss suffered (privately paid medical treatment or loss of earning) should also be kept.
You can find out how to process a personal injury claim on the internet but, at a time when you are recovering from an injury and may be unable to collect evidence of negligence, file accident reports and send Letters of Claim, it makes more sense to utilise the services of a solicitor who will take over your personal injury claim – allowing you to focus on making a recovery from your injury.
