Work accident claims advice


Are you looking for work accident claims advice?

Here at Accident Advice Helpline, we offer professional, honest work accident claims advice with no obligation. We know that accidents happen anytime, anywhere, but when they happen at work, the stress of going up against your employer can add pressure to the situation.  All kinds of accident and injury can happen at work, but the type of accident usually falls broadly into one of a few main types.

Here are some of the most common categories of work accident claims advice we provide.

Slips, trips and falls

Although slips, trips and falls cover a huge range of incidents they thankfully rarely cause injury.  If you are one of the unlucky ones, though, and you are injured in a slip, trip or fall at work, you need to think about why it happened.  Was there a hazard that should have been dealt with or highlighted to you?  Did your injury happen as a result of poor maintenance of flooring or equipment?  Were you being asked to carry out your work in an unsafe environment?

Manual Handling and Lifting

If you are required to lift and carry objects as part of your job, your employer should provide you with manual handling training.  This training explains how to lift and carry safely without injuring yourself.  It also explains what can happen if you don’t lift and carry objects in a safe way.

Working at Height

Of all of the categories of accident at work, falling from height has the highest injury and fatality rate.  Even a relatively small fall, such as slipping from a ladder, can cause permanent injury.  Your employer is responsible for assessing the risk of working at height and should be providing adequate safety equipment and training to keep you safe.  Any equipment designed to help you work at height should be well maintained and regularly inspected, including ladders, scaffolding, cherry pickers, etc.

Specific industrial injuries

Many of our calls ask for work accident claims advice relating to very specific industrial injuries.  These can include cases of white finger or hand arm vibration syndrome from working with power tools to repetitive strain injury from overuse of specific muscles associated with repetitive tasks.  Again, your employer is expected to assess and be aware of the risks associated with the tasks you undertake.  They are required to take all reasonable steps to minimise the risk and impact of those tasks.

Traffic accidents while representing your employer

If you drive your employer’s vehicle, perhaps as a courier, delivery service or while on work business, then you expect that vehicle to be safe and well maintained.  Your employer has a responsibility to make sure that your vehicle is fit for purpose.  Your employer may also have liability if you are involved in a road traffic incident while on duty.
