Criteria for Making a Claim
First of all, if you are thinking of making a claim for injuries, you must prove that the accident in which you sustained them was not your fault. Then you need to prove that the accident was, in fact, the fault of someone else. If you slipped on an oil platform, for example, you would need to be able to prove that your employer’s negligence was in some way to blame for your accident.
Lastly, you will have had to have received medical treatment for your injuries, as you will have to produce your medical report if you make a claim.
Accidents at Work
If you have an accident at work, it should be reported to the appropriate member of staff who will record the details of the accident, along with the names and contact details of witnesses in the accident book. You should then receive medical attention, even if you think your injury is a minor one, as sometimes symptoms take time to develop; for example the symptoms of a whiplash injury might take up to twelve hours to make their presence felt. You should also ensure that your accident is reported to the Health and Safety Executive, and if you believe that your employer won’t report it, you can do this yourself.
