Can I Claim Compensation For An Accident At Work?
Your employer is responsible for your health, safety and wellbeing at work, both at their premises and when you are working for them elsewhere. This includes the responsibility to:
- Ensure the place where you work is safe and well-lit
- Ensure employees are properly trained in carrying out their roles safely and adequately supervised
- Provide health and safety training to employees
- Provide the proper equipment to allow you and other employees to carry out your job safely
- To carry out risk assessments
- To maintain equipment
- To keep the premises free from slip and trip hazards
- To have safe working systems in place
- To highlight any hazards
If you have been injured while at work and you believe that it is as a result of your employer’s failure to adequately carry out their duties or as a result of another employee’s negligence, you are strongly advised to take legal advice about bringing a claim for compensation.

The Work Accident Compensation Claims Process
If you want to claim compensation for a work accident, you are advised to speak to a solicitor as soon as you can. If you ask us to take your case, we will start putting together evidence straightaway, while the incident is still fresh in the memory of everyone concerned.
We will make contact with your employer’s insurance company to let them know that you will be bringing a claim and we will ask our medical experts to examine you and prepare reports to support your legal action.
If the insurance company admits liability, we will negotiate with them as to the amount of compensation you will be paid. It is often possible to settle a work accident compensation claim without the need to attend court.
Where liability is not admitted or you are not offered enough compensation for your injuries, we will prepare a strong case on your behalf and support you through the court process, to include ensuring you are represented at your hearing by a work personal injury claims expert.
How Long Do Work Accident Compensation Claims Take?
The length of time taken to settle a work accident compensation claim will depend on how serious your injuries are and whether the other side admits that your employer was liable for your accident.
If liability is not admitted and your case goes to court, it is likely to take longer to settle than if it is dealt with by negotiation and agreement.
If your injuries are fairly serious, it is often advisable not to settle too quickly. This will give you the opportunity to see what your long-term prognosis may be so that we can make sure you are properly compensated for any future issues you may continue to experience.
We can request interim payments from the insurer while your case is ongoing so that you do not suffer financial hardship in the meantime.
Is There A Time Limit For Bringing A Work Accident Compensation Claim?
There is usually a time limit of three years from the date of the accident in which to bring a personal injury claim for a damages payment.
If you did not realise at the time that you were injured, for example, in the case of an industrial disease, the three years runs from the time at which you should reasonably have known of the injury.
