    Claiming after an accident at work in Portsmouth

    If you are injured in your workplace, whether or not to claim compensation can be a difficult decision. It is a sensitive and uncomfortable time and not a choice you make easily. You never expect your employers to let you down, resulting in you being injured at work.

    Accident Advice Helpline are here to help you when you are claiming after an accident at work in Portsmouth.

    How do I know if I can make a claim?

    It can be difficult to know if you are eligible to make a claim after an accident at work. But the truth of the matter is actually quite simple.

    Employers and business owners in the U.K. are responsible for the safety of employees and visitors to their premises. All businesses must hold insurance and comply with health and safety regulations.

    If your employers fail to do this, and you are hurt as a result, then you are entitled to be compensated for the injuries you sustain.

    Examples of workplace accidents

    Even in a low risk workplace, there are still many accidents that can occur if your employers do not treat the safety of you and your colleagues as of paramount importance.

    There is a broad spectrum of injuries that can be sustained at work, from concussion of a sprained muscle, to amputations and fatal injuries. The causes of these accidents can be equally varied, they include.

    • Slips, trips or falls
    • Defective equipment
    • Electrical injuries
    • Toxic substances
    • Negligence of employers or co-workers
    • Lifting injuries cause by a lack of training
    • Falling objects
    • Incorrect safety equipment
    • Assault by a co-worker or visitor

    In these cases and in many more, it is the responsibility of those who employ you to ensure that such accidents do not happen. If they fail to do this, then the injuries you sustain as a result are their fault, and you deserve to be compensated.
