Calderdale accident at work


Advances in health and safety law over the last century have made Calderdale workplaces so much safer, but accidents still happen, even in seemingly innocuous environments such as quiet offices and small corner shops. If you are unlucky enough to suffer a Calderdale accident at work, dealing with it in a professional manner is of the utmost importance. Below is a basic guide to follow in the immediate aftermath of any accident at work:

Stay calm

Whether you have pulled a muscle in your back or broken a limb, it is essential to keep calm. Your health should be your top priority if you have been hurt, so seek medical help either from your GP’s surgery or local A&E department.

Tell your employer

Your employer has a duty to record all accidents in an accident book, so you must inform your employer of the details of your accident and the nature of the injuries you have sustained.

Check your employment contract

If you are unable to return to work following your accident, you should be entitled to Statutory Sick Pay. However, your employer may offer a supplementary sick pay scheme, so you should read through your contract to check whether you are entitled to receive any additional income. Your employer may also be able to help you by offering you the opportunity to work from home, so discuss your situation with them to determine whether they are able to accommodate your needs.

Consider making a Calderdale accident at work claim

You may feel reluctant to make a Calderdale accident at work claim in the fear that you may damage the relationship with your employer, but it is important to remember that your employer has a duty to ensure that you remain safe while you are at work. If you sustain an injury because of their failure to follow health and safety procedures, you deserve to receive compensation for the pain and inconvenience of your injuries.

It is not always possible to make a compensation claim against your employer, but it is worth phoning the trained claims advisers here at Accident Advice Helpline so that we can assess your case and provide you with advice on your legal rights.

If you have a valid claim for compensation, we will guide you through the claims process and help you to secure a fair compensation settlement from your employer. We will work for you on a 100% ‘no win, no fee*’ basis, and take care of your claim from start to finish, so that you can focus all your efforts on recovering from your injuries.
