    Accident at work compensation in Merton

    If you’ve been injured as a result of an accident at work that was not your own fault within the last 3 years, you may be eligible for accident compensation.

    When it comes to making a claim for accident at work compensation in Merton, though, there are a number of things you must consider before you begin your claim.

    Were you injured?

    If you were injured and received medical attention as a result of the accident, you may be eligible for compensation for the injury you received, and to cover things like loss of earnings, prescription costs, or even arranging childcare if you are unable to do so yourself.

    Was the accident your fault?

    If the accident was your fault, you will be ineligible to claim accident at work compensation in Merton, but if it was someone else’s fault, you may be eligible. Sometimes it’s not clear what constitutes yours or another person’s responsibility, a good way to find out would be to ask one of our expert advisors who are available for questions and queries.

    Was there any evidence of the accident?

    If you have any evidence of the accident, such as photographs or videos of an area with a hazard or obstruction with incorrect signage, or documentation in the workplace’s Accident Book, this is invaluable for your claim.

    It provides conclusive proof that an accident was not only possible, but likely, and occurred as you claim it did. An eyewitness testimony from someone who clearly saw the accident will also strengthen your claim that much more. If you need more information on what might constitute evidence or proof, get in touch today and we can help.

    Was the accident within the last three years?

    If the accident occurred within the last three years, you may be eligible, otherwise you are not likely to be eligible for any compensation, as the cut-off time has been reached. In some cases the three year time limit may be extended, you can find out more about the circumstances that determine the cut-off point for your claim with an advisor on our phone number below.
