    Claiming for accident expenses in Waveney


    Accidents at work can usually be easily avoided if your employer takes reasonable steps to ensure your safety. Unfortunately, some employers fail to make their workplace safe, for example, by failing to carry out risk assessments.

    If you suffer a Waveney accident at work caused by a failure on the part of your employer, you will be entitled to compensation, known in law as ‘damages’. There are many different types of damages, and you may be able to include some or all of them in your claim. You could even find yourself claiming for accident expenses in Waveney.

    Types of damages available in Waveney accident at work claims

    The following types of damages are common in accident at work claims:

    1. Medical expenses
      Before you contact Accident Advice Helpline about your accident at work claim, you will need to seek medical attention for your injuries. You will then be able to include all the expenses relating to the treatment of your injuries, including the cost of travelling to and from your medical appointments, when you file your claim.
    2. Rehabilitation therapy
      If your injury requires you to seek ongoing rehabilitation, you will be able to include the cost of this in your claim. If your need for rehabilitation is ongoing, you will be free to seek your projected future costs from your employer.
    3. Lost wages
      If you are unable to work because of your injury, you will be able to recoup the cost of your lost wages. To substantiate your claim, you will need to provide wage slips from before and after your accident.
    4. Pain and suffering
      If you experience pain and suffering damages as a result of your Waveney accident at work, you will be able to receive money for the effect your injury has had on your life. A medical report from a doctor or surgeon in your locality will help you to prove the extent of the pain and distress you have encountered.
