Work Accident Claims

When you’re at work, your employer has a duty of care to make sure the environment that you’re working in is as safe as possible. This is a legal duty which is detailed in the Workplace (Health, Safety and Welfare) Regulations 1992  and if they fail to ensure your safety at work and you become injured as a result, then you have every right to claim compensation.

What is an accident at work?

A workplace accident could be anything from the minor to a major incident. Whether you’ve suffered a minor injury because of unsafe equipment or an unmarked wet floor, or you’ve suffered a serious injury, it’s easy to claim as long as you can demonstrate two main factors:

  • Display the fact that you’ve been injured
  • Prove that your employer is at fault as they haven’t fulfilled their duty of care

When can I claim?

If you wish to make a claim then you must start legal proceedings within three years of the accident taking place. If you develop an industrial illness, the three year time limit will only begin once a connection between your disease and the workplace has been established – this is to account for the fact that many industrial illnesses take years to develop.

In any other instance though, you’re generally advised to start claim proceedings as soon as possible, which means gathering up all of the relevant information to get your claim underway.

This means you’ll need:

  • Proof of the entry in the company accident book
  • Information of any witnesses
  • CCTV footage of the incident (if it’s available) – it’s more than likely that your employer will be reluctant to hand such evidence over. However, they have a legal obligation to do so
  • Take photos of the scene and your injuries
  • Keep a record of any medical appointments you had to attend and treatments you have undergone

Loss of wages

An accident at work can affect your life in a number of ways. It’s traumatic, inconvenient and, if it’s serious, is likely to cause loss of earnings, which could put pressure on your family and home life.

For many people, losing out on a few days’ pay will put a huge financial strain on life and nobody should have to put up with it. Claiming compensation for your injury will also allow you to claim back any earnings that have been lost, due to being unable to work, attending medical appointments or receiving treatment.
