    Accident at work in Croydon

    Some workplace accidents cause obvious injuries, such as cuts, bruises and broken bones; others cause unseen injuries, such an internal bleeding, making the link between your symptoms and your accident more subtle. Regardless of the type of symptoms you develop after an accident at work in Croydon, there are a few steps you should take right away if you feel that you may have been injured.

    Get medical assistance

    If you have suffered a serious injury on the job, you may need to call for an ambulance or ask someone to take you to A&E. Even if your symptoms are relatively minor and you can patch yourself up using a first aid kit, you should see a doctor as soon as possible for a thorough examination. If you delay seeing a doctor, you will not only put your health at risk, you will also reduce the amount of money that your employer’s insurer will owe you in compensation.

    Make a written record of your accident at work in Croydon

    After you have sought medical assistance, you should return to your workplace and provide your employer with a written account of your accident at work in Croydon. If you do not do this, your employer may deny all knowledge of your accident.

    If your employer has an accident book, you should use it to record the following details: the date, time and location of your accident; a brief description of the nature of the event; the names of any eyewitnesses; and the type of injury you have sustained. If there is no accident book, put these details down on paper and send a copy to your employer via registered post.

    Contact our team

    Once you have reported your accident to your employer, you should call the Accident Advice Helpline and let our trained claims advisors assess your claim. They will be able to explain your legal rights and ensure you complete the necessary steps to obtain full and fair compensation for your accident at work in Croydon.
