Making workplace claims in Teignbridge
In order to make a successful claim for an accident that resulted in injury at the workplace, you have to show evidence that the accident occurred as a result of the employer’s negligent actions (or inaction). Your injuries must have occurred as a direct result of this work related accident.
Accident Advice Helpline advises that, as soon as possible after an accident, you write down the details of the accident in the workplace accident book. Fill in an accident report too, writing down a description of the accident and the injuries sustained in as much detail as possible, and give a copy to your supervisor or manager.
It is also a good idea to take the names and addresses of any witnesses and take photographs of the scene of the accident. If you can, take photos of your injuries, as well.
As soon as you can, make a call to Accident Advice Helpline to find out more on how you can pursue workplace claims in Teignbridge. You could get started straight away with your claim.
Accidents caused by a fellow employee’s negligence
It is important to know that you are entitled to make a claim when the accident that caused you personal injury was caused by a fellow employee.
This is because employers are liable for the negligence of their employees through a principle called vicarious liability. That means you could make a claim against your employer.
If you choose to make a claim, you don’t need to worry about compensation being paid directly out of your employer’s funds and putting the company at risk of losing money. Employers are required by law to take out employer’s liability insurance. These policies cover payments of compensation in cases where staff suffer injuries at work.
