Tyne and Wear Accident at Work


Advances in health and safety legislation have made workplaces safer than ever before, but accidents still happen. Whether you work in a quiet office or busy warehouse, injuries can strike at any time and if you are unlucky, they may force you to spend weeks, maybe even months, away from your job.

Had a Tyne and Wear accident at work?

The law demands that your employer compensates you for the pain, suffering and financial losses experienced as a result of a Tyne and Wear accident at work. However, your employer may be reluctant to pay you the compensation you deserve. Take these steps to maximise your chances of receiving full and fair compensation from your employer.

  • Seek medical advice
    Your health should be your main priority, so if you sustain an injury, head straight for the hospital and seek medical help. The sooner you identify the problem and seek medical treatment, the better your chances of making a speedy recovery.
    Once you have received any necessary treatment, follow your doctor’s advice. If you ignore your doctor’s recommendations, your employer may try to claim that you deliberately exacerbated your injury.
  • Tell your employer
    Your employer must keep a record of all injuries at work, including minor injuries, in an accident book. This is mainly for your benefit, as it provides a written record of your accident in case you need to claim compensation later on. However, it also helps your employer to review the effectiveness of their health and safety policies.
  • Swot up on your employment rights
    If you need to take time off work following your Tyne and Wear accident at work, you should be entitled to statutory sick pay. However, your employer may pay you more for time off work caused by accidents, so check your employment contract to determine your entitlements.
  • Consider legal action
    It is a step you may feel reluctant to make, but you will need compensation to move forward with your life.
