Personal Injury Solicitors
What is a Work Accident claim?
Any accident that you suffer while at work carrying out your duties can result in a work accident claim, and you could be entitled to compensation. Work accidents can often be caused by:
While you are in your place of work your employer has a duty of care to ensure that you are provided a safe place to work. They also have to comply with health and safety law. They are also required to have proper insurances in place to cover your work accidents.
What is Health and Safety Law?
- Carry out a risk assessment
- Explain how risks will be controlled
- Work with you and any health and safety representative in protecting everyone from harm in the work place
- Provide you health and safety training
- Provide you with the equipment and protective clothing you need
- Provide washing facilities, drinking water and toilets
- Provide first aid facilities
- Report injuries, diseases and dangerous incidents
- Have insurance in case you get hurt or become ill at work
- Work with any other employers or contractors sharing the workplace
Do I have a Work Accident claim?
If your employer does not comply with the Health and Safety Law and you have suffered an injury you may be entitled to compensation as your employer is legally required to have sufficient insurance to cover your accident. In the UK there is a time limit, all accident at work claims should be started within 3 years of the accident. However there are some exceptions to this and so please contact us as soon as possible.
