Accidents and injuries at work are unfortunately all too common. If you have been injured in an unsafe workplace through no fault of your own, Accident Advice Helpline is here for you. You may be entitled to compensation to help you recover from being injured in an unsafe workplace as well as payment to cover any loss of earnings or medical expenses you may have incurred as a result of your injuries.
You shouldn’t feel intimidated or anxious about making injury claims due to an accident at your workplace. Your employer has a duty of care towards you and all employees, and if you are injured as a result of working in an unsafe environment then you should make this known so that other employees are kept safe in the future. Work places must be kept free of hazards that could cause injury – this includes providing all staff with adequate training and ensuring that all machinery is adequately maintained and safe for use.
If you required medical treatment for your injury in place of work that was not your fault, but instead the fault of your employer or a fellow employee, then you could be entitled to compensation. If you reported your accident to your employer and this is your first attempt to try and claim for your injuries, you can contact Accident Advice Helpline today for friendly and supportive advice. If you are still unsure as to whether you qualify for an injury claim, take our free 30 second test to quickly ascertain your eligibility.
