    West Sussex Accident at Work

    If you have been injured in a West Sussex accident at work, your employer may be liable to pay you compensation.

    What do I have to prove to win a West Sussex accident at work claim?

    To win a claim against your employer, you will need to be able to prove several points.

    1. Your workplace was hazardous
      You will need to show that the conditions within your workplace were dangerous and that they caused your West Sussex accident at work. Photographs of the conditions will provide you with an effective way of proving your allegations, as will statements from witnesses who can provide testimony about the dangers present in your workplace.
    2. Your employer put your safety at risk
      You will need to prove that your employer was responsible for the dangerous conditions that caused your accident at work. Proof can take the form of evidence that your employer knew about the conditions, but did not try to remedy them, or should have known about the problems, for example, accident book entries relating to similar previous accidents at work.
    3. Your accident caused you to sustain an injury
      You will need to provide evidence that proves that your West Sussex accident at work caused you to suffer a physical or emotional injury. Medical records detailing your injuries and a doctor’s medical report should help you to demonstrate that your injury resulted from your accident. Reports from emergency service personnel and Health and Safety Executive (HSE) inspectors can also be helpful. In some cases, you may need to call upon the help of an expert witness, especially if the injury caused by the accident at work is not obvious.
    4. Your injury led to monetary losses
      To recover compensation, you must be able to show your monetary losses. This is easy for losses related to your injury – simply keep your receipts, invoices, wage slips and bank statements.
