Had An Accident At Work?

Many employers are unsure of their responsibilities regarding the reporting of Accidents in theShould My Accident at Work Be Reported to the Health & Safety Executive? Workplace. The Health & Safety Executive is the body responsible for the promotion and enforcement of Health & Safety in the workplace.

Employers have an obligation to report all serious work accidents that occur in the workplace to the Health & Safety Executive or the local authority.

What should I do after a Work Accident? Employers have a duty of care to ensure that the workplace is safe. This includes things like making sure machinery is safe, ensuring safe working practices are set up and followed, and checking that the working equipment is safe and well maintained. Employers must also ensure that they provide adequate training and carry out risk assessments.

We have devised a simple 4 step guide in the event of an Accident at Work.

  1. Report the Accident Immediately

Report the accident immediately to your employer. All employers should have an Accident Report Book in which any accident in the workplace should be logged. If the accident is serious enough, your employer is under a duty to then report the accident to the Health & Safety Executive.

  1. Take Photos/Videos

Take photos or a video of where the accident occurred if possible. This can be used as evidence and will help protect your rights. It will ensure that we can prove who or what caused the accident so that you are not blamed for being at fault.

  1. Attend your G.P/Hospital

It is important that you attend your G.P or Hospital at the earliest opportunity to have your injuries assessed and treated. Your medical notes and records can then be obtained and used as evidence of your injuries as part of your case.

Why Choose Us?

Michael McGee wanted to create a law firm that really cared about his clients. Other law firms seem to be distant and impersonal and hard to get hold of. Michael realised that many people were not getting the legal service they deserve and he was determined to do things better than the other solicitors out there.

We specialise in accident claims and we really care about our clients. Michael realised that many other solicitors claim to specialise in personal injury law but do not have the focused expertise of a law firm that specialises in the area of whiplash claims.
