    Cambridgeshire Accident at Work


    Personal Injury Solicitors in Cambridgeshire

    If you have suffered an injury in a Cambridgeshire accident at work, you may be entitled to make a personal injury claim.

    Regardless of whether your injury was caused by the actions of a careless employer or an incompetent employee, there are a number of steps you can take to improve your chances of succeeding with your claim. They include the following:

    1. Report your Cambridgeshire accident at work

    Make a written report of your accident in your employer’s accident report book. If you are unable to complete the entry yourself, ask an fellow employee to write down the details on your behalf. If possible, ask your employer to provide you with a copy of the entry for your own reference.

    If your employer does not keep an accident report book, report the accident in writing to your employer and keep a copy of the letter for your own records.

    2. Take photographs

    If possible, take photographs of the accident scene. If you do not have a camera on you, use your smartphone or ask an employee to take photos on your behalf.

    If your injuries are visible, take photos of them too, as you will be able to use them to prove your injuries.

    3. Obtain the details of witnesses

    Write down the full details of any witnesses to your Cambridgeshire accident at work, making a note of their full name, address, landline number, mobile number and email address.

    4. Keep any relevant evidence

    Retain all relevant documents connected to your accident. For example, keep your parking tickets to prove that you were at work on the day of your accident.

    If your accident happened just as you were leaving your workplace, look for CCTV cameras and contact the surveillance company to ask them to retain the footage of your accident.

    5. Seek medical attention

    Visit your GP or local hospital as soon as possible so that a medical professional can assess your injuries and provide you with any necessary treatment. If you continue to suffer problems with your injuries, return to seek further medical advice.

    6. Obtain immediate legal advice

    Last, but certainly not least, consult with the personal injury team here at Accident Advice Helpline.

    The sooner you contact us via our freephone helpline or 30-second test, the sooner we can gather all the evidence required to substantiate your Cambridgeshire accident at work claim. This will greatly increase your chances of success, and will help you to secure the compensation you deserve.
