Can I Make A Work Injury Compensation Claim?
Your employer owes you a duty of care. This means that they must take steps to ensure your safety while you are working for them. Steps they are required to take include:
- Providing safety equipment
- Ensuring safety equipment and other equipment is properly maintained
- Giving everyone adequate training
- Adhering to health and safety legislation, to include carrying out risk assessments
- Ensuring the working environment is free of hazards
- Taking steps to prevent negligence
To prove that you have a valid claim for compensation for a work injury, you need to establish the following:
- That your employer had a duty of care towards you
- The duty of care was breached because one of the above steps was not taken
- You were harmed because of this breach
It is not necessary for the incident to have taken place at your employer’s premises. If you were injured while working for them, but it happened elsewhere, you can still make a claim. For example, you may have been driving for your employer, picking up items for them or working at the premises of a client of theirs.
How Do I Start A Work Accident Compensation Claim?
If you have been injured at work, you are strongly advised to speak to a personal injury solicitor as soon as you can. If you call us, we can take down the details and if you want us to represent you, we will contact your employer and their insurer. We will notify them of your claim and start putting together evidence of what has happened and how.
We can arrange for you to be examined by our medical experts who will prepare a report on your injuries that we will use in your claim. If the other side admits liability, we will calculate how much we think you should receive and negotiate on your behalf to try and achieve this.
Our team are experts in dealing with work accident claims and are usually able to settle cases out of court.
How Much Compensation Is Paid For Accidents At Work?
The amount of compensation for work accidents depends on how severe your injuries are and the level of financial loss you have sustained.
Your compensation will cover your pain and suffering, loss of amenity (inability to do things you formerly enjoyed) and expenses you have incurred such as loss of earnings, prescription charges and travel costs to attend medical appointments.
If you ring us, you can speak to a work accident solicitor who will be able to give you an idea of the likely amount of compensation you could be awarded. Alternatively, you can use our online work accident compensation calculator.
