Unfortunately, accidents don’t just happen to us when we are in far flung corners of the world, they can occur anywhere, even at work. If you have been the victim of an accident which occurred whilst you were at work, which wasn’t caused through any fault of your own within the last 3 years’, then you may be eligible to make a no-win, no-fee personal injury compensation claim, and you may want to use the services of a claims solicitor in Alsager to help you.
Have you been injured?
Injuries can range from severe trauma which can have life changing consequences, through to minor injuries that require outpatient treatment and recuperation. However, you don’t have to have sustained a serious injury in order to be eligible for a no win no fee compensation claim for your personal injury.
Typical work related injuries may include:
- Strains and sprains.
- Broken and fractured bones.
- Internal injuries and bleeding.
- Food poisoning.
- Head trauma.
- Neck injury.
- Spinal injury.
- Loss of limb.
- Fatal injury.
Reporting the accident
If you have been injured in a work related accident, then it must be reported in the company’s Accident Book to ensure that the correct reporting procedures are followed.
Always report the accident – the location, circumstances, person injured, their injuries, any action taken and any consequences to your line manager. If possible, obtain a copy of the entry made in the Accident Book for your records.
Any treatment prescribed by a medical practitioner should be detailed in your medical records which may be obtained later by a claims solicitor in Alsager to help with your claim.
