There are many criteria that should be looked at to see if you can make a Cardiff accident at work claim.
Have you had an accident at work that wasn’t your fault?
It is not always immediately obvious who was at fault when an accident occurs. Some people even think faulty machinery or tools are just one of those things and couldn’t be helped, but it is your employers duty to ensure all machinery and tools are working correctly.
So whether it’s an individual or a piece of equipment, if it wasn’t your fault, then chances are you are eligible to make an accident at work claim for compensation but you may need help from experts in compensation in Cardiff.
Where you injured in the accident?
In order to make a claim you must have sustained injuries from the accident. Those injuries must have required medical attention of some sort, and a copy of any medical records may be required to help make your claim.
Was the accident within the last three years?
Many people think too much time has passed for them to make a claim, but personal injury claims can be made any time within the three years immediately after the accident. There are exceptions to the three-year rule for things such as industrial illness, and where the injured party is a minor. Ask one of our friendly advisors if you’re unsure whether your claim is within the required time limit.
If you answer yes to the above questions, then there’s a good chance that experts in compensation in Cardiff will be able to help you to make a claim.
