    Workplace injury claim in Bedwas

    Personal Injury Solicitors in Bedwas

    If you have suffered an accident at work, you may be worried about the prospect of making a workplace injury claim in Bedwas against your employer. However, it is important to remember that there are many laws in place to protect you in the workplace and one of these laws – the Employers’ Liability (Compulsory Insurance) Act – states that your employer must have liability insurance to protect against the cost of accident at work claims.

    Whilst you are at work, your employer must provide:

    • A safe way for you to perform your workplace role
    • A safe place for you to work
    • Competent co-workers

    If your employer fails to meet these three basic requirements, and thus causes you to suffer a workplace injury, you will be entitled to make a claim through their insurance company.

    Making a workplace injury claim in Bedwas

    If you sustain personal injury in a non-fault accident at work, you should:

    • Record your injury in your employer’s accident book
    • Take down the contact details of any witnesses
    • Create a written account of the accident, detailing your version of the events that took place
    • Take photographs of the accident scene
    • Visit your GP’s surgery or local hospital’s A&E department to receive treatment for your injury

    Unfortunately, you will not automatically receive compensation for your accident at work. To receive compensation, you must work closely with a solicitor to prove that your employer failed to take reasonable steps to protect your health and safety and that, as a result of their actions (or inactions), you deserve compensation.
