Personal injury claims – accidents at work
If you have had an accident and suffered an injury because of it, you have to be able to prove that the accident was caused by negligence on the part of another person. If you had an accident at work, then you need to be able to prove that your employer was at fault and to blame for your accident.
You need to have any accident at work logged in the accident book, which every employer must have in compliance with the Health and Safety at work legislation. You need to report you accident immediately and give details of how the accident occurred and the names and addresses of witnesses. The accident should then be reported to the Health and Safety Executive (HSE). This is important if you are to make a claim for personal injury.
You may perhaps have been diagnosed with a work-related illness and this could also be the fault of your employer. For example if he/she has ignored the Health and Safety Executive’s requirements for the type of workplace you are employed in, then you could possibly have a case for a personal injury compensation claim. You can be diagnosed as having a work-related illness whatever type of job you do, whether it is a manual one or a sedentary one which involves working on a PC.
