Do you need help claiming for a workplace injury?
If you’ve received an injury at work, you may need help claiming for a workplace injury. Perhaps you had a fall whilst using equipment or tripped over a loose wire in the office? It doesn’t matter how it happened, as long as the accident was someone else’s fault, take the 30 second test to see if you can make a claim today.
Here are 5 top tips to help you process a claim for a workplace injury:
1. Contact us ASAP about a workplace injury
The sooner you get in touch the better. We may require you to take a medical assessment in support of your claim, so you need to get in contact with us straight away so we can document any short term injuries. Plus the sooner you let us know about your claim, the soon we can get you the compensation you are entitled to.
2. It’s all in the details
Over time, it can be easy to forget small details about the incident. Make sure you write down as much information as you can about what happened, plus the details of any witnesses so that they can be contacted at a later date.
3. Get your workplace injury checked out
It is important to make sure you get your injury checked over by a GP or hospital, not just to make sure that you are OK after your accident, but also for your claim. Doctor’s reports are integral to your claim for compensation – they act as proof of the injuries you sustained.
4. Don’t feel guilty
If something happened to you whilst you were at work, you may be reluctant to claim as you’re worried about upsetting your employer. All UK companies have a special insurance which protects against accidents in the workplace, so your compensation will be paid out by them, not directly from your employer. Remember you are the injured party, you’re just getting the compensation you deserve.
5. Sit back and relax
You may wonder how this is possible, but with Accident Advice Helpline, we take all of the stress away from processing a claim. There are no forms to fill in, just give us all the details and we’ll do the rest. It’s likely that the whole process can be handled over the phone without you having to go to court, so you can concentrate on recovering from your injury.
