Accidents of any kind can be embarrassing, particularly if they happen in a public domain. If they happen in the workplace, it can be even more excruciating. It is human nature to be embarrassed at first but the most important consideration should be the state of your health and any injuries sustained as a result of the accident.
If you have been injured in the workplace, as a result of someone else’s negligence, you should consider making a claim for compensation. There are various points you need to consider when claiming against an employer in Norwich, such as:
Reporting the incident
You should always report the incident to your manager and fill out an incident report, with details of the accident, including the time and date of the accident. Your manager should take the incident seriously and take action on your behalf.
It is important to get some medical assistance after your accident, as you never know what sort of effect it could have had on your health, even if there are no visible signs of injury.
A doctor may be able to prescribe some medication to help or may issue an appointment with a physiotherapist. Your medical records can also be used as evidence to support your claim.
Evidence to support your claim
You will need to be able to back up your claim, otherwise it is difficult to prove who was at fault. Some examples of relevant evidence may include; witnesses at the scene, a police report (depending on the nature of the incident), photographs of the accident or injuries and of course, your medical records.
