Tips for making a compensation claim against an employer – no win no fee* in Birdlip
If you have been injured at work then it may be your own fault, or it may be the fault of your employer. Your employer has a duty of care towards all employees to ensure that you are always safe in the workplace, and when you are doing your job.
Any hazards that your job holds should have been carefully thought through, and you should have all of the equipment and safety measures put in place to protect you against this.
If you have not been provided with the safety equipment and processes you need and have been injured, then you may be able to claim compensation against your employer. Here are some tips on making your claim.
- Report the incident. Having an official record of the incident will help you to process your claim more easily, and will provide you with proof of your accident. As soon as the accident occurs you should go and report it and make sure an official record is taken of what happened and when. If you do not get the chance to do this, then file a report at the earliest possible opportunity.
- Take pictures. Any injuries you sustain should be documented as well as the incident itself. Take photographs of your injuries as they progress, from immediately after the accident to a week or so down the line. You may also want to keep copies of any medical assessment given to you by a doctor.
- Talk to your employer. Explain that you feel that you are entitled to compensation for the accident you have suffered and why, in what way you feel that your employer has been negligent, and what should have been done to protect you. If you want to keep working at the company you need to do this to prove that you do have a case.
