    Claiming For a Work Accident Injury

    If you’ve been involved in any kind of accident in the workplace, you could be entitled to compensation. Here, we answer questions related to work accident injury claims to set the record straight on proceeding with a claim:

    Q:  I mentioned to my boss that I am thinking of putting in a claim for the fall I had at work and received a frosty response. I didn’t expect him to be happy about it, but I’m concerned that if I go ahead, I will receive a warning or worse, get fired.  Is it worth the risk?

    A:  If you are concerned, the best person to speak to is your HR advisor. In short, if you were to be sacked as the result of proceeding with a claim, you would have a case for unfair dismissal. When you make a claim for compensation, the reward would not be coming out of the pocket of your employer directly anyway. All UK companies must protect themselves with liability insurance as a legal requirement. Your claim would be paid out from this insurance policy, so you don’t need to worry about the costs being paid by your employer.

    Q: Despite having witnesses to my accident, my employer is denying that the injuries I received were a result of my fall at work. How can I prove this?

    A: The best thing to do if you’ve had a work accident injury is to call us at Accident Advice Helpline rather than trying to dispute this yourself. We only use the best lawyers in the UK who are experienced in dealing with this type of situation. You can help us by providing details of the accident and witnesses, but more importantly by seeking medical advice as soon as the injuries happen. Our expert legal team will handle everything else for you, including going to court on your behalf in some cases.

    Q: I had to take unpaid time off after breaking my back at work, I’ve also rung up medical bills from seeing a private specialist. I therefore can’t afford to take the case to court, can I get any help with the costs?

You won’t need to visit your solicitor, so there are no travel costs – we can usually handle the whole process over the phone.
