South Ribble accident at work


The first few days after an accident at work can be confusing, yet the actions you take are crucial to building a strong compensation claim against your employer. To protect yourself and prepare your future claim, it is essential to:

  • Gather information
    If you do not put some information down on paper, winning your South Ribble accident at work claim will be a challenge. In the unfortunate event of an accident, make as many notes as you can, including a summary of the events leading up to your accident, the accident itself, and its aftermath. You will be able to call upon these notes as you begin the claims process.
  • Seek immediate medical treatment
    If you are taken to hospital by ambulance, get copies of your test results and take down the names of the doctors and surgeons you consult with. If you are not taken to hospital, visit your GP as soon as possible. If too much time passes between your accident and your visit to your GP, your employer’s insurance company may reject your South Ribble accident at work claim.
  • Notify your employer
    After receiving treatment for your injuries, the next step is to notify your employer. You can either return to your workplace to fill in an accident book entry or send your employer a letter detailing your accident and the injuries you have sustained.
  • Seek legal advice
    You may hear from your employer’s insurer soon after reporting your South Ribble accident at work. The insurer may try to pressurise you into making a recorded statement and if you are not careful, you may say something that weakens your compensation claim. It is not necessary for you to provide a statement and you should certainly never give one without first discussing your case with a personal injury solicitor.
