    South Derbyshire accident at work


    Your employer is under a duty to follow health and safety regulations set out by the government. Some of the many rules that they must follow include:

    • Providing you with protective equipment and clothing
    • Following fire safety regulations
    • Offering you proper health and safety training
    • Keeping their workplace clean and tidy
    • Ensuring that any machinery you use is well maintained

    If you are concerned about the safety of your workplace, you can report your employer to the Health and Safety Executive (HSE). However, it is always advisable to discuss your worries with your employer first as they may be willing to implement any necessary changes.

    You have protection from the law regarding your safety in the workplace and if your employer does not follow health and safety regulations and you suffer a South Derbyshire, accident at work, you may have a right to make a compensation claim against them.

    Taking a South Derbyshire, accident at work claim to court

    The vast majority of the accident at work claims we deal with settle before they get anywhere near the court. This means that there is a good chance that you will be able to receive compensation without giving evidence against your employer at a court hearing.

    Your employer will usually be keen to negotiate the settlement of your claim, but if we are unable to agree on a suitable sum of compensation, or if there is a complex point of law to be debated, we may need to go to court. It is worth realising, however, that employers often make last minute offers to save themselves the time and expense of long court battles.

    Lodging a South Derbyshire, accident at work claim

    If you wish to receive compensation from your employer, you should file your South Derbyshire, accident at work claim within three years of the date of your accident. If you do not start your claim in court within that period, it will not be possible for you to continue with your claim. It is therefore important that you call the team here at Accident Advice Helpline and provide us with all the relevant details as soon as possible.

    In certain cases, there may be a longer period in which you can file your South Derbyshire, accident at work claim. If, for example, you were not aware that your injury was caused by your accident at work, you may have three years from the date of your diagnosis.
