    Job accident claim


    Have you been involved in an accident in the workplace? If so, you may be interested in making a job accident claim. If you’ve never been through the process of making a claim for compensation before though, you may be feeling uncertain about what to expect.

    We created this guide so that you can make informed decisions about your next steps. Read on to find out what you really need to know about making a job accident claim.

    You’ll usually only have three years

    You shouldn’t wait around for too long. This is because there is usually a deadline of just three years from the date of your accident. If you constantly put things off until another day, you could face the disappointment of discovering that you’ve completely missed out. There is an exception of which you should be aware, though — if you’re suffering from an industrial disease, this deadline may be extended.

    This is because such conditions can take a long time to manifest and you might have experienced no symptoms whatsoever for many years. If you’re in this situation, speak with a solicitor for further advice.

    You don’t have to worry about losing your job

    Many people are wary about claiming after an accident at work because they’re concerned that they might lose their jobs. This is understandable, especially when you consider that we’re living through tough economic times, and roles aren’t always easy to come by.

    You don’t have to worry about this, though. It would be against the law for an employer to dismiss an employee because they pursued their right to make a claim. If this happened to you, you may have a case for unfair dismissal.
