    Accident at work in Cheltenham

    As an employee, you are entitled to work in a safe environment. If your employer fails to keep your workplace free from hazards, and you suffer an accident at work in Cheltenham, you may be entitled to compensation. Unfortunately, the claims process is not a simple one, and workplace accident claims are amongst the most difficult to pursue.

    How to win compensation for your accident at work in Cheltenham

    To succeed with your claim, you must be able to prove that your employer owed you a recognisable duty of care and that their careless actions or omissions caused you to suffer an injury and/or financial loss. As your employer’s duty to protect you from harm is enshrined in the law, proving that you were owed a duty of care should be relatively straightforward. However, demonstrating that your employer breached that duty of care may be more difficult.

    At the Accident Advice Helpline, our experienced personal injury solicitors can take the stress out of proving your claim by gathering solid evidence in support of your allegations. We may ask you to kindly support our efforts by doing the following:

    • Taking photographs of accident scene
    • Recording your pain and suffering in a daily diary
    • Keeping any correspondence from your employer and their insurer
    • Requesting copies of your medical records
    • Retaining receipts for any expenses relating to your injuries
    • Logging any time spent by your family and friends helping you to do everyday activities you cannot do yourself
    • Keeping any payslips from before and after your accident

    If we win your claim, we will ensure you receive a compensation settlement that comprises two separate awards: general damages and special damages.

    Your general damages award will compensate you for your injuries. Strictly speaking, it will reflect your pain, suffering and lost enjoyment of life.

    Your special damages award, on the other hand, will compensate you for the out of pocket expenses resulting from your accident at work in Cheltenham. It will include the costs you have incurred through seeking private medical treatment, hiring professional nursing care, purchasing specialist medical aids, and travelling to and from your medical appointments.

    If your injuries are likely to have a lasting effect on your quality of life, we will also seek to secure compensation for all your future losses.
