Can I Claim After An Accident At Work?
Your employer has a duty to provide a safe working environment for you. If they fail and you are injured as a result, you may be able to claim work accident compensation.
Examples of accidents where you could make a claim include:
- You have slipped or tripped on a hazard
- Your employer has not adequately trained you or your colleagues in using equipment safely
- The right safety equipment has not been provided
- Equipment has not been properly maintained
- Something has fallen on you
- You have been injured while lifting a heavy item
- Risk assessments have not been carried out and safe working practices have not been implemented
Even if you have been injured away from your employer’s premises, you could well be entitled to claim if there was negligence involved or the accident could have been avoided by better safety procedures.
How Much Compensation For A Work Accident Claim Belfast?
Your compensation will be calculated on the basis of several factors, including:
- Your pain and suffering
- Being unable to do the things you used to do, known as loss of amenity
- Your financial losses, such as loss of earnings, travel expenses to medical appointments, prescription charges and the cost of any special equipment you need
Is There A Deadline For Making A Work Accident Claim?
There is a deadline of three years within which you should start your compensation claim following a work accident. If you were not aware of your injury at the time, for example, in the case of an industrial disease, you have three years from the date on which you should reasonably have known about it.
How Long Does A Work Accident Compensation Belfast Take?
The length of time taken to resolve a compensation claim following a work accident depends on several factors, including how severely you have been injured.
In some cases, you may be advised to wait and see how your injuries heal before agreeing on a final sum in compensation. This is because you are entitled to compensation for future loss of earnings and the pain and suffering that may be continuing.
By delaying settlement, we will have a better opportunity to assess what the future may hold and your long-term prognosis.
Where necessary, we can ask for interim payments to be made to ensure that you have money to live on in the meantime and to pay for any expenses you are incurring.
If your injuries are less severe and your employer’s insurance company admits liability for what has happened, your case could be resolved within a year or less.
Do You Have To Go To Court For A Work Accident Claim?
We are usually able to settle a work accident claim out of court. We will notify your employer’s insurance company that you are making a claim and ask them if they will admit liability.
If they do, we will arrange for you to be examined by medical experts and use their reports as a basis for negotiating your compensation payment. Our personal injury solicitors are highly experienced and are usually able to secure the best possible compensation.
If liability is denied by your employer or their insurance company or the amount offered is not sufficient, we can take your case to court. We will make sure that your case is strong and that you have an expert personal injury advocate representing you.
We always do everything we can to make the work accident claims process as easy and stress-free as possible. We will carry out all of the work ourselves and make sure that you are thoroughly supported every step of the way.
Our team are easy to contact and we are always happy to talk through matters and address any concerns you may have.
What Steps Should I Take After A Work Accident?
It is important to seek medical treatment straightaway if you are injured at work. As well as ensuring you have proper care, this will also create an early record of your injuries. If more appointments are made for you, you should try to attend all of them.
You should make sure that your employer enters the incident into the work accident book. You can also make your own notes recording what happened and take photos where appropriate. If other people witnessed the event, make sure you have their names in case it is necessary to ask them for a statement in support of your case.
You are strongly advised to speak to an expert work accident solicitor as soon as possible. If you ring to speak to us, we can take over the case for you and carry out the work that needs to be done on your behalf.
We know that making a claim against your employer after a work accident can be daunting and you will find us supportive and understanding. We will deal with all of the paperwork on your behalf, making your claim as easy as possible.
