Car accident at work


You will have certainly heard about car accidents – unfortunately hundreds of them happen every day. You have probably also heard about accidents at work – these are a little less common, but sadly an all too frequent occurrence in many workplaces. So what about a car accident at work? How does that get dealt with in the personal injury legal system?

Dealing with a car accident at work

If you ring Accident Advice Helpline because you have been injured in a car accident at work, then we will deal with it for you. Our friendly, professional advisers will firstly make sure that you have grounds upon which to make a claim, and will then allocate you a personal injury lawyer if so. This can be dealt with in a number of ways, depending on your answers to the following questions.

Were you hurt in your car accident at work?

If you were not hurt, then you cannot make a personal injury claim. You will normally have had to receive medical attention for your injuries, so that your medical notes can form part of your evidence of your claim. You could have received the medical attention from your own doctor, or in a hospital casualty department.

Was your car accident at work the fault of your employer?

Some car accidents may be the fault of your employer. One example would be that your accident was caused by a technical fault with the vehicle that you were driving, and that your employer was responsible for the maintenance and repair of that vehicle.

Your employer has a duty of care to protect your health, safety and welfare when you are at work, and this would include maintaining all of the machinery that you have to use – a vehicle would be a type of machinery in this situation.

Was your car accident at work the fault of another driver?

If your car accident at work was the fault of another driver, then you may be able to make a claim from them. Another driver can cause a car accident by driving negligently; they may not have been concentrating, or may have even been under the influence of drugs or alcohol. If their driving caused the accident, then you can claim compensation from them for your actual injuries, as well as for any money that you have lost because you are injured. Accident Advice Helpline can find exactly the right personal injury lawyer to handle your case from our large team of highly trained and experienced lawyers.

Accident Advice Helpline can handle both of these types of cases on a no win no fee* basis, so that you do not have to pay any upfront legal fees to get things started. This will ease the financial pressure on your family at this difficult time.
