Most of us spend a lot of time at work so it’s not surprising that when we are unfortunate enough to be injured in an accident, it often happens in the workplace. Many types of accidents at work are typically minor. Sometimes, the embarrassment of falling over in front of colleagues is worse than the pain of a skinned knee.
Other times, there are more serious types of accidents at work that require you going to hospital for treatment. Your injury could be severe enough that you have to take time off work, or stop work altogether. If you have suffered a serious injury at work because of your employer’s negligence in the last three years, you can seek compensation.
At Accident Advice Helpline, we have been helping people who have been injured at work for well over fifteen years, and have successfully won many thousands of pounds in compensation for clients. Making a claim against your employer can seem daunting and you may be worried about possible consequences, but there’s no reason to fear asking to be compensated for your injury when you weren’t to blame.
Two common types of accidents at work
- Back injuries
Have you fallen off your chair at work because it was faulty and injured your back? Have you slipped on wet stairs in the warehouse and damaged your spine? Has scaffolding or a beam fallen on your back and put you out of action for weeks? If you can show that any of the above was caused by your employer’s negligence, we can make a claim for compensation.
Have you tripped over a torn carpet in the office and broken a wrist in your fall? Have you been crushed under a collapsed section of wall at the plant where you work and broken a leg? Have you broken an arm or cheekbone because of faulty equipment that wasn’t properly maintained? If your employer’s negligence is to blame for your injury, we can claim compensation on your behalf.
Our helpline is available 24/7 and we have a team of specialist solicitors who take your case on a no-win, no-fee basis. One of our advisors will explain the process although you will not be forced to make a claim.
Remember, your employer is covered for these types of accidents at work and your claim is against their insurers and not your employer, as such. Call Accident Advice Helpline on 0800 689 0500 or 0333 500 0993 from a mobile phone for free, no-obligation advice about making a claim for compensation.
