Treharris industrial accident


Gathering evidence in support of a compensation claim is likely to be the last thing on your mind in the immediate aftermath of an accident at work. Nevertheless, you could reduce the value of your claim or jeopardise your chances of success if you fail to do certain things. Your employer will look for ways to reduce the amount of compensation they have to pay you, so avoid making these costly mistakes if you are ever unfortunate enough to suffer a Treharris industrial accident.

Mistakes to avoid after a Treharris industrial accident

  • Mistake #1: Failing to seek medical attention
    See a doctor as soon as possible and get treatment for your injuries. If you delay seeking medical advice, your employer may accuse you of exacerbating your injuries.
  • Mistake #2: Failing to report your accident
    Even if your accident was only minor, inform your employer and file an accident book entry. You will be able to use your report to verify the date, time and location of your accident.
  • Mistake #3: Failing to record important evidence
    As a bare minimum, record the names and contact details of anyone involved in the accident, as well as any eyewitnesses. If you can, take detailed photographs of the accident scene.
  • Mistake #4: Admitting liability
    If you think you may have been at fault for your Treharris industrial accident, do not confess to your employer. Call Accident Advice Helpline on our freephone helpline as soon as you return home and let our trained claims advisors help you decide whether you were at fault.
