Accidents at Work

Although employers are required by law to try to prevent any resonably forseeable accidents, injuries that happen as a result of an accident in the workplace are still relatively common.  If you find yourself injured because of a workplace mishap that wasn't your fault, you may be entitled to compensation.  

We understand that you may be reluctant to pursue such a case for fear of putting your job at risk.  However, at The Claim Room we have a vast amount of experience in claiming compensation for a wide range of accidents at work, and will handle your claim sensitively and professionally.  

Once you have chosen to make a claim, you need not discuss it at all with your employers, that is something your lawyer will do on your behalf.  It is a requirement that every company must have insurance for its employees, so any compensation award you receive will come from your employer's insurance policy, and not directly from your employer.  

The steps to take following an accident at work

If you have been injured in an accident at work there are a number of things you can do to give yourself the best chance of getting a fair settlement:

  1. Report the accident to your manager and make sure it is properly recorded in the accident book.
  2. If there were witnesses to the accident, make sure you keep a note of who they were.  They may be able to assist you in supporting your claim.  
  3. Find out if there have been other similar accidents.
  4. DO NOT sign any statements or written descriptions of the circumstances surrounding the accident without first consulting with your lawyer.
