Need no-obligation advice for your injury?
Workplace injuries are a common cause of admissions to Accident and Emergency departments up and down the country. With ever increasing working hours, often around the clock, many of us are spending an increasing amount of our week at work. Unfortunately, accidents can happen to anyone, at anytime, and our workplaces are not immune from the trauma of injuries. If you have been the victim of an accident at work that was caused through no fault of your own within the last 3 years, then you may be legally entitled to pursue workplace injury claims in Wirral.

Reporting your accident at work
If you, or a colleague, have been injured whilst at work as the result of an accident or incident, then it is important that the correct procedures are followed. The employer should provide an Accident Book that records the date, time, location, reason for the incident and any treatment provided. This constitutes a legal document and is part of Health and Safety at Work legislation.
Ensure that a copy of the entry made in the Accident Book is correctly filled in and obtain a record of the entry if possible.
Seek medical advice for any injuries that have been incurred as a result of your accident at work in Wirral. Ensure that you obtain a copy of any relevant medical notes related to your injury, for your own records.
