    When workplace accidents happen and you suffer injury or illness as a result, it can be hard to know where to turn when you think the accident was caused by someone else’s negligence. In most cases, it is highly likely that you will be eligible for compensation if the accident was caused by someone else’s careless actions.

    What should I do in the event of an accident at work?

    The single most important thing that you can do is to ensure that your employer makes an accurate record of your injuries in an accident book. Your employer is legally obliged to record all accidents in the workplace, and should you wish to make a claim the accident book entry will provide vital evidence.

    Is my employer responsible for workplace injuries?

    Your employer owes you a duty of care, which means that they should ensure that your working environment is safe from harm. If your employer fails to protect your health and safety, you can hold them responsible for your injuries. If you sustain injuries while using faulty equipment supplied to your workplace by a third party, your employer will remain liable for your accident.

    Can I claim compensation if I was partly responsible for my accident?

    If your injuries resulted from you choosing to ignore safe working practices, you can still make a claim through an 100% no win no fee* accident lawyer in Otley from Accident Advice Helpline. However, your employer may argue a case of contributory negligence.

    What is the difference between an ordinary lawyer and a 100% no win no fee* lawyer in Otley?

    A 100% no win no fee* accident lawyer in Otley will provide you with a no win no fee* arrangement. Such an arrangement will enable you to access the help of an accident lawyer in Otley with the greatest of ease. You will not have to pay out for any upfront fees or hidden charges.

    Could I lose my job as a result of my decision to pursue a claim?

    Under UK employment law, your employer cannot dismiss you for making a compensation claim. Your employer should be pragmatic enough to understand that workplace accident claims are a fact of life.

    How much compensation will I receive?

    The exact amount of compensation that you will receive will depend on the severity of your injuries. If you have sustained a life-changing injury, your claim is likely to attract a large sum of money.
