FAQS about making an accident at work claim
Being involved in an accident at work can leave you feeling frightened, in pain, and, if it was someone else’s fault, angry.
The injuries you sustain in an accident can be serious, leaving you facing a prolonged period of recovery in addition to many painful side effects. If you were not at fault, you should not have to settle for these repercussions without fair financial compensation.

I’ve been in an accident at work; how do I know if I’m eligible to claim?
In order to make a claim, your accident must have taken place within the past three years, and you should be able to demonstrate that the negligence of another party caused it to occur. You must have been in no way responsible for the accident occurring if you want to receive compensation for the injuries that have arisen. If you are unsure about whether or not you can make a claim, an Accident Advice Helpline advisor can answer your questions and provide a detailed breakdown of your case over the phone.
I have lost a loved one in a workplace accident. Can I claim?
Losing someone you love in an accident is devastating, perhaps especially so in cases where this could have easily been avoided. In these cases, you can make a fatal accident claim and receive money in compensation under the Fatal Accidents Act (1976).
My injuries are not life threatening, can I still make a Portsmouth accident at work claim?
A common misconception is that injuries need to be serious or permanent to warrant compensation, but this is not the case. Even minor injuries can see you awarded money if you are living with them as a result of someone else’s negligence.
How much does it cost to make a claim?
