Walsall Accident at Work


If you’ve been hurt in a Walsall accident at work you’ll know that it can be painful, frightening, and expensive. If it wasn’t your fault, it’s natural to want compensation, but it can be difficult to know where to start. We can help you see through the myths and decide if a personal injury claim is right for you.

MYTH: It’s not my employer’s fault if I have an accident at work

TRUTH: The UK Health and Safety Executive says “All workers are entitled to work in environments where risks to their health and safety are properly controlled. Under health and safety law, the primary responsibility for this is down to employers.” Negligence is one of the primary causes of accidents at work.

MYTH: I can only claim immediately after my accident

TRUTH: You can claim up to three years after your Walsall accident at work. Remember that going through your employers’ complaints procedure may take a long time and you may not receive more than an apology. Call Accident Advice Helpline to speak to a professional adviser about claiming financial compensation, or take our 30-second test online.

MYTH: I can only get compensation for actual financial losses, like medical expenses

TRUTH: You may well be entitled to compensation for the financial costs incurred by your accident, including private medical care, transport to hospital or doctor’s appointments, or any damage to your clothing or personal property that occurred when the accident took place. These are called specific damages. However, you may also be able to claim general damages , which is money paid to compensate for the pain and suffering an accident can cause, or any future loss of earnings. Accident Advice Helpline will be able to talk this through with you.

MYTH: I can’t afford to make a compensation claim
