Who can make a compensation claim after a workplace accident in Wiltshire?
Under UK law, you can make a compensation claim after being injured in any accident that took place because of someone else’s negligence. Where the workplace is concerned, this means you should be able to prove that an employer displayed negligence that lead to the onset of your injury, and that you were in no way at fault.
How can I prove my employer was at fault?
You can prove that you were the innocent party by providing everything from witness statements to copies of the official workplace accident report, images and video and more.
The more documentation you can provide your solicitor, the stronger the chances of a successful outcome.
Is there a time limit on making a claim?
