Accidents at work are very common and can occur in any situation. If you have suffered an illness or injury in the workplace, caused by a mistake on the part of someone else, you may be entitled to make an Enfield accident at work claim. Whilst claiming against your employer may seem like a stressful and costly event, you should remember that you can pursue a 100% ‘no win, no fee’ claim through the team here at Accident Advice Helpline.
How do I make an Enfield accident at work claim?
For your accident at work claim to be successful, it will be necessary for you to prove that your illness or injury was caused by the actions or inactions of your employer. Wherever possible, you should seek to obtain the following evidence to help you to prove your case:
- Witness contact details
- Photographs of the accident scene
- Accident book entries detailing similar incidences
- Medical records
If you wish to claim for the losses and expenses resulting from your Enfield accident at work, you should also gather:
- Wage slips showing your lost income
- Letters from your employer detailing your sick leave
- Receipts and invoices for out of pocket expenses such as travel expenses, medical treatment charges and nursing care costs
While your compensation settlement will not take away the pain and distress your accident has caused, it will help you to restore your financial standing. It may also help you to pay for the medical treatment and rehabilitation you need to make a full and fast recovery from your injury.
Will I lose my job over my claim?
Your employer cannot dismiss you for making an Enfield accident at work claim and if they do attempt to do so, you would have valid grounds to file a claim against them for unfair dismissal.
