    Have you been searching for a specialist work injury solicitor in Wylam? Accident Advice Helpline can assist you in making a compensation claim if you have been injured while at work, providing that it can be proven that the accident was not your fault.

    Many people are worried and hesitant about claiming for a work-related injury, however it is your right to work in a safe environment in which safety procedures and protocols are followed. You, your employer and fellow employees are all responsible for the health and wellbeing of each other.

    All employers should have insurance for such events, so do not worry that you will be putting them at a financial disadvantage. Your work prospects should also not be affected. After all, the negligent party should be held accountable and it may prevent accidents occurring in the future.

    Unfortunately accidents at work do happen, and more often then not they could have been avoided with some due care and diligence.

    Why do accidents happen at work?

    Obviously some professions carry a greater risk of accidents occurring, for example construction site workers, but accidents can occur in any type of workplace.

    Common injuries result from a slip, trip or fall. Faulty equipment or inadequate safety protection are also other frequent causes. In some cases it may not be a single incident which causes injury, but rather an illness that develops over time due to exposure to hazardous substances or incorrect techniques being used.

    Reporting and recording the accident

    Any injury caused in the workplace should be reported to your line manager. If you have a health and safety officer, then the incident should also be reported to them.

    Most workplaces have an accident book, in which you should enter the details of your accident as soon as possible. If your workplace does not have one, make sure you give your manager a written account of the accident and the injuries you sustained.
