    East Lindsey accident at work


    If you have suffered an injury in an East Lindsey accident at work, you may be entitled to file a compensation claim. Irrespective of whether you slipped on a wet floor or fell from a height, you may have a right to receive compensation for all the losses and expenses relating to your accident. Taking the following steps after your accident will help you to create a strong case, so that you can get the maximum possible compensation settlement from your employer’s insurance company:

    Inform your employer

    Even if your accident was only minor, and your injuries appear to be mild, it is still advisable to inform your employer so that they can make an official record of your injury in their accident report book. At a later date, when you can, request a copy of the accident book entry and retain it for future reference. This report will contain important details that could help you to make a successful compensation claim.

    Collect evidence

    You must maintain all documentation relating to your East Lindsey accident at work, including:

    • Photographs of the accident scene
    • Photographs of your injuries
    • Records of the medical care you have received, including details of visits to your GP, pharmacist, physiotherapist, occupational therapist, psychologist and/or chiropractor
    • Receipts for miscellaneous costs, such as transport costs to and from your local hospital, childcare costs and prescription charges
    • Wage slips and letters from your employer verifying your lost income

    You should also keep a daily diary with the aim of recording any other details relating to your accident, such as the amount of time you spent at the hospital, any pain and discomfort you had to go through whilst you were receiving treatment, and any physical and emotional difficulties you had to overcome on a daily basis.
