If necessary, we’ll also arrange an independent medical assessment to help you document your injuries.
Evidence you may need to get started with a claim
If you’ve had an accident in the workplace, the first thing you’ll need to do is prove that you weren’t at fault for what happened to you. This means your employer, or another employee, must have admitted responsibility or you can prove they were at fault. Any compensation you win will be paid out of your employer’s liability insurance. You may also want to get the names and details of any colleagues or other people who witnessed the accident.
You’ll also need medical records to prove that your injuries came about as a direct result of the accident, which is easy enough provided you’ve received some sort of medical attention. If you visited a hospital or doctor, you can request the records as proof for your case.
If you have incurred out of pocket medical expenses, you may also want to keep receipts of prescriptions etc as this money can be recovered on top of your compensation.
