    Babergh accident at work claim


    We can help you make a Babergh accident at work claim

    All bosses around the UK have a legal duty to ensure the health and safety of all of their employees while they are at work, and if they fail to do so you may be able to make a Babergh accident at work claim for compensation.

    They should also make sure that all staff members have a safe environment to carry out their duties. If employees are injured in accidents at work because of their employer’s non compliance with health and safety regulations, or negligence of any other sort, the employee concerned should contact Accident Advice Helpline to discuss making a claim.

    Making an accident at work claim is not just about compensation

    Making an accident at work claim does more than get you the compensation you are entitled to after being injured in an accident that was not your fault. It can also highlight a hazard that needs attention, and can stop other victims suffering the same fate as you.

    There are endless ways victims get injured while doing their job, just a few samples are:

    • Fork lift truck accidents – only qualified operators should be allowed to use them
    • Tripping over trailing wires can have very nasty results if the victim hits their head on something sharp as they fall
    • Plant and machinery, or a safety device, that is not working correctly can injure the operator, and workers should refuse to use anything that is not in proper working order
    • Falls from height can cause very serious injuries, and sometimes death
    • A driving job can involve a road traffic accident
    • Farming jobs can involve accidents with combined harvester and other farming equipment, as well as accidents where victims fall into silos and grain stores.

    Reporting accidents at work

    Serious accidents at work should be reported to HSE, and if you have any doubt that this has been done by your employer, you should report it to them yourself. The sorts of accidents they would expect to be told about are:

    • Broken bones and lost limbs or digits
    • Exposure to dangerous substances, chemicals and gasses
    • Deaths
    • Walls or scaffolding falling onto victims
    • Any accident that means you are off work for more than 7 days

    The aim of this is so that HSE can investigate how the accident happened, and hopefully lessons can be learned that will stop the same thing happening to another faultless victim.
