    Top Tips for making a successful accident at work compensation claim in Sandy 

    If you’ve been hurt in an accident at work and it happened because your employer was negligent in some way, you have the right to make a compensation claim in Sandy.

    To help you make a successful claim, Accident Advice Helpline have put together our Top Tips for making a successful accident at work compensation claim.

    1.   Seek Medical Help

    It’s essential that you get medical help to treat your injuries, no –matter how trivial they may seem. You never know if the injury could become worse over time.

    A visit to your doctor will not only treat your injuries but will also provide you with valid medical evidence to back up your compensation claim in Sandy.

     2.   Report the Accident to your Employer

    Report the accident to your employer as soon as possible. If you have to leave for urgent treatment, ask someone else to report the accident first and do it yourself later. Your employer is required to report certain types of accidents to the Health and Safety Executive) or local authority.

    For example, if you break your wrist, your employer must write up a report because a broken wrist is considered a major injury. However, all accidents, even minor, should be recorded in an accident log book.

    If an injury, even if it is not considered a major injury, causes you to be off work for more than 3 consecutive days, you employer still has to report it to the HSE (Health and Safety Executive) or local authority.

    So, even if you hurt your back lifting something heavy, tell your employer and seek medical attention as soon as possible because your injury could become worse over time.

    Be careful how you describe the accident. If you blame yourself in any way, this could go against you in your personal injury compensation claim in Sandy.

    Make sure you provide an accurate, factual account of the accident and obtain a copy of your employer’s accident report.

     3.   Gather Evidence

    Try to remember or write down names and addresses of anyone who witnessed your accident. If possible, take a photograph of the scene or the hazard that caused it. Most people have cameras on their mobile phones, so it is easy to take a photograph.

    If you can’t take a photograph because you have to leave for urgent treatment, ask someone to do it for you.

    4.   Keep proof of all expenses related to your injury

     It’s essential to record all expenses related to the injury you’ve sustained. Keep all receipts and invoices; they will be used to claim back your total out of pocket expenses.
