Other questions to ask yourself before making a Harborough accident at work claim
There are a few things you will need to know before you start your claim such as:
- Who is the claim to be made against – most employers have employers liability insurance which would settle the claim, but if you work for any type of publically funded organisation, such as the NHS or police, the settle the claims themselves as they are exempt from the need for insurance.
- Were there any witnesses to the accident – when the guilty party contests a claim, you need to be able to prove you were not at fault, and any witnesses that saw the accident happen could help prove your claim.
- Were HSE informed – serious accidents have to be reported to the Health and Safety Executive, and if they are involved they will complete an accident report. These reports often point the finger of blame, and this can be a vital piece of evidence for your personal injury claim.
- Can you get medical reports for your injuries – whoever treated your injuries will be asked to provide a medical report on how severe they were, and how long your recovery is likely to be. Sometimes, victims are asked to attention an independent medical assessment as well.
