Accidents in the Workplace: When Can You Make an Accident Injury Claim?

This is another safety post kindly provided by one of our sponsors, The Accident Claims Web. They are one of the leading UK websites for personal injury claims. You can see other content they have supplied regarding child safety whilst cycling on the road here. The content on this blog post was written by a third party, and we did not curate this ourselve. It is a promotional piece supplied to us by a company who we are happy to say paid a small donation to have their accident injury claims content posted on the Cyber Safe Book website. You can also contribute should you wish by contacting Russ. Thank you.

However, sadly, despite a number of attempts to reduce the number of accidents in the workplace, thousands of people suffer are injuries in their place of employment.

Our website helps people who need to make an accident injury claim in the UK and has a wealth of information for people who are not sure whether or not they could be owed personal injury compensation. We advise that you go check it out if you or a family member has been hurt. If you were involved in a cycling accident then we can also recommend this charity.

Please note that personal injury claims with children are treated differently according to UK law. Where in most accident injury claims adults will have three years within which to take legal action, this does not apply to those who are aged under 18. Anyway, on with our content.

Your employer has a duty of care to you and other members of staff to make sure that you are in a safe place of employment, you are not at risk from hazards and have suitable training for your role. Sadly, despite this duty of care, many employers fail to ensure staff are safe in their place of work, with this failure in their duty of care often being the cause of workplace accidents.

If you have been injured due to being incorrectly or improperly trained or if you were injured as a result of negligence, our team of solicitors can help you get the compensation you deserve.

Workplace Accidents

No workplace is entirely safe with even office jobs resulting in accidents and accident injury claims through hazards in the office or improper storage. However, areas such as the construction industry, manufacturing industry and even recycling and other areas are the most likely to result in serious injury. Likely injuries will typically occur to the upper body, and we have particular expertise in winning significant shoulder injury compensation payouts for our clients.

The construction industry is one of the most common due to workers operating heavy machinery, exposure to dangerous chemicals, a number of vehicles on construction sites and working in outdoor and often extreme conditions. Workers in the manufacturing industry can often be injured by not having training on a machine, poor safety equipment and due to dangers in surroundings. Regardless of where you are injured, however, there is often one common denominator, and that is negligence.

What do I need to make a Personal Injury Claim?

If you have been injured through no fault of your own in the workplace as a failure in duty of care or as a result of negligence, you will be able to make a personal injury claim. In order to make a personal injury claim, it is vital that you were not responsible for your own accident or injury, but that the injury occurred as a result of a negligence or a failure in the duty of care.

If you are injured through no fault of your own and wish to make a personal injury claim, we recommend you do so by enlisting the help of the Accidents Claim Web. Their dedicated team of solicitors will work with you to obtain justice and the damages you deserve.

To make a personal injury claim, it is vital that you provide as much evidence as possible to your solicitors in order to allow them to build the strongest possible case for compensation. We strongly advise that if you are injured you seek medical attention. Not only will this give you peace of mind knowing that your injuries are being tended to and improve the chances of a quick rehabilitation time, but, a medical report can also be granted that will allow you to verify the extent of your injuries. Such a report can show a judge or those involved in the case the true extent of your injury as well as demonstrating the estimated recovery time for your injuries.

As well as a medical report, solicitors will require details such as where, when and how the incident took place and who was responsible for your injuries. Further evidence to support your claim should also be provided such as witness statements of those who saw the incident, a copy or note of the incident in the Accident Report book and even photographic evidence to further verify your claim. While the Accident Claim Web solicitors will inform you of exactly what you need before making a claim, the more evidence you can provide them, the stronger case you have for obtaining compensation.
