Accidents in the workplace


Have you just suffered an accident in the workplace? Was the accident due to someone else’s fault? Have you thought about making a claim for compensation?

An accident in the workplace is a distressing thing to happen. No one arrives at work expecting to get injured. Workplaces should be safe and secure places, with the hazards recognised and adequately controlled. If this has not been the case and you have been injured as a result, you may want to consider making a claim for compensation.

This is how to go about it.

Step 1

Find a claims provider who can advise you and guide you through this tricky process. A top choice is Accident Advice Helpline. We are endorsed by Esther Rantzen and have been helping people like you for over 15 years. We will have plenty of experience in your type of case. You can find us on the web or call us on our 24-hour, seven-day a week helpline.

Step 2

Use the details of your workplace accident in the Accident Advice Helpline 30-second test. These are some common workplace accidents that Accident Advice Helpline handle:

  • Falls from a height;
  • Slips and trips;
  • Burns from hazardous substances;
  • Machinery accidents; and
  • Vehicle accidents.

Step 3

Accident Advice Helpline will allocate you your own personal injury lawyer. This legal expert will deal with all the legalities of the case on your behalf. You will have to supply them with a lot of details so that they can represent your case properly. This may include details of:

  • Where you were at the time of the accident;
  • The machinery or tools that you were using;
  • Anything that you were carrying;
  • How the accident happened;
  • Any other staff involved;
  • Any training that you have received;
  • The injuries that you suffered;
  • Medical attention that you have received; and
  • Money that you have lost as a result of your injuries.

Step 4

Your personal injury lawyer will liaise with the person from whom you are claiming (or their lawyer) and an amount of money will be agreed. It is quite rare for a case to have to go to court; in fact, most are handled over the phone. It is rare for you to have to meet your lawyer face to face. You will have one medical assessment report produced for you by a local medical expert. This usually involves one appointment. At the end of the claim, you will be informed of the amount of money that you have been awarded. This is to cover both the injury and the money that you have lost because you were injured.
