Do you need expert legal advice and help to file a personal injury compensation claim for injuries sustained in an accident at work? If you live in South Staffordshire, we at Accident Advice Helpline can help you claim South Staffordshire workplace accident compensation.
South Staffordshire workplace accident compensation
To be eligible to obtain South Staffordshire workplace accident compensation, you must prove that your accident was not your fault. You will also need to prove that the accident in which you sustained your injury was the result of another person’s negligence. If you believe that you can do this with help from us at Accident Advice Helpline contact us now. You will find our contact details below.
Naturally, you should have had medical treatment for your injuries as soon as possible after your accident. If you delayed seeking treatment, this could damage your claim.
You should have informed the appropriate member of staff about your accident. He or she should have logged it in the accident book. Afterwards, the accident should be reported to the Health and Safety Executive (HSE). This should be done by your employer. However, if you suspect that your accident will go unreported, you can report it directly to the HSE yourself.
The HSE investigates the causes of accidents at work and compile reports. It helps if a report from the HSE can be made available to prove that you were not responsible for your accident and injury.
Statistics for workplace accidents
The numbers of accidents at work are estimated figures, as the HSE believe that not all accidents at work are reported to them. The figures show that there are not as many accidents at work as there were twenty years ago and there are far fewer fatalities.
Between 2013 and 2014 the HSE estimate that 629,000 workers had an accident at work. 203,000 of these injuries led to an absence of over 3 days from work and an estimated 148,000 of these led to an absence of more than a week.
