Personal injury compensation claims
If you have been injured in an accident, you may be entitled to file a personal injury compensation claim provided you can prove that responsibility for it lay with another person. Another reason for filing an injury claim is that you have been diagnosed with an illness that you can prove was the result of someone else’s negligence.
You generally have three years in which to file personal injury compensation claims, but as there are some which have shorter periods of time in which you can make a claim you should find out how long you have, either by contacting a firm of solicitors in Bolton-le-Sands, for example, or by calling us here at Accident Advice Helpline.
Accidents at work
If you have an accident while you are at work, you may be eligible to file a personal compensation claim if you can prove that you were not to blame for it. You should inform your employer and make sure that the details are recorded in the accident book. Names and contact details of any witnesses should also be recorded.
Even if you think your injury is minor, you should have immediate medical attention as some seemingly minor injuries can worsen if left untreated.
Your employer should also report the accident to the Health and Safety Executive (HSE), but if you think this won’t be done then you should report it yourself.
It could be that the accident was the result of your employer not carrying out a thorough risk assessment before allocating the work to you, or perhaps you did not have adequate training to do the job. It could also be the case that you were not issued with appropriate protective clothing or apparatus. In all of these cases, you may be able to prove that negligence on the part of your employer is what caused your injury.
