    Harlow accident at work


    If you are involved in an accident at work that may have been caused by the carelessness of your employer, preserving any physical evidence of the accident and your injuries can help you to support your position in any Harlow accident at work claim you later decide to pursue. It is important to do this as soon as possible after your accident because the circumstances can change quickly: memories can fade and physical evidence can disappear without trace.

    Preserving evidence in support of your Harlow accident at work claim

    The first step to take in protecting evidence of your Harlow accident at work is to ensure that you keep hold of any physical evidence you can lay your hands on.

    • Retain important documentation
      You should request copies of any documentation relating to your accident, such as medical records pertaining to the treatment you have received and correspondence from your employer relating to the time you have taken off work. Another type of important documentation that you will need to retain relates to your out-of-pocket expenses, such as prescription charges and private medical treatment. To support your claim for these items, you will need to provide relevant receipts, payslips and invoices.
    • Take photographs
      Preserving physical evidence may not always be possible in every accident at work case. For example, the main causes of accidents at work are dangerous machinery and slippery surfaces. In these situations, your best option is to take clear photographs of the hazard from multiple angles. You should also take detailed photos of your injuries and any damage sustained to your personal possessions.

    Although taking the time to collect evidence may be the last thing on your mind after your Harlow accident at work, these actions can be beneficial should you decide to pursue a claim against your employer.
