If you suffer a personal injury as a result of Charnwood accident at work, you may find that you are entitled to claim compensation from your employer. If your accident was caused totally, or in part, by the actions (or inactions) of your employer, it is highly likely that you will have a valid claim.
Do’s and don’ts following a Charnwood accident at work
To strengthen your case for compensation, you should follow these essential do’s and don’ts:
- Report the matter to your employer
- Make a record of your accident in your employer’s accident book
- Take down the details of any witnesses to your accident
- Take photographs of the accident scene
- Seek medical attention for any injuries you have received
- Speak to us as soon as possible to give us the opportunity to assess your case and advise you on your legal rights
- Assume that your employer will openly admit to causing your accident
- Believe that your employer’s insurance company will provide you with an appropriate compensation settlement
- Accept an early settlement offer without first speaking to one of our personal injury lawyers
