    To pursue your claim for a trip at work you will need to provide evidence that inconclusively proves that your injuries were the direct result of the negligence of your employer. This evidence can include:

    • Eyewitness accounts
    • Medical records
    • An account of your accident in your employer’s accident book
    • Accounts of similar accidents, recorded in your employer’s accident book
    • Reports of ambulance personnel attendance

    This list is not exhaustive and should you choose to make a claim, your accident lawyer will be able to collect a strong body of evidence in support of your allegations.

    Don’t be afraid to take legal action
