Work accident compensation can be claimed by an employee if they have suffered an accident at work whereby their employer was to blame. Employer faults may include:
- A lack of training required to carry your job out safely
- Faulty, poorly maintained equipment
- Health and safety non-compliance
If you have suffered an injury at work, whatever your circumstance, you may be entitled to make a claim for work accident compensation. To check your eligibility, you can use a handy tool such as Accident Advice Helpline’s 30 second calculator. It will ask a series of short simple questions, returning an approximate compensation amount if you are indeed eligible to claim. This amount will be an estimate only, but gives a good idea of the figures you may be working with – depending on severity, it may be hundreds or thousands of pounds.
Work accident compensation testimonials
Our work accident compensation testimonials will give you an idea of how the process works:
Ann is just one person who has received compensation after contacting Accident Advice Helpline. She received £6,500 – here’s her account of the accident:
“I had a facial injury at work when a large fridge door hit me full-face and broke my nose. After the accident I couldn’t go to work, and saw Esther Rantzen doing the advert on TV. I called straight away.
They were very professional, helpful and sympathetic. It was nice to hear a genuine person on the end of the phone.”
