Accidents at Work Claims

What is an accident at work claim?  

How should employers prevent an accident at work?  

Employers have a range of responsibilities to help ensure the safety of their employees. Liability falls under numerous laws which detail the standard of care and provisions which should be in force in a workplace. The following should be used as a guideline when deciding whether your employer is at fault for your accident at work, and whether you can make an injury at work claim:

  • An employer has a responsibility and duty of care to protect their employees, contractors, and visitors.

  • Employers must provide their employees with the appropriate machinery and tools to allow them to undertake their jobs safely.

  • Employers must also make sure that all tools and machinery are safe.

  • Your employer must ensure the workplace is kept in a safe and tidy condition.

  • Employers should ensure their employees are provided with suitable workstations.

  • Doors, gates, and emergency exits should never be obstructed, and all corridors, floors and carpets should be free from hazards.

  • All employers should ensure their employees are provided with the correct and appropriate training.

  • It is mandatory for employers to have an appropriate insurance policy in place.

  • Employers should ensure that work is not unnecessarily carried out at height; and in the event that it is, that any risks are reduced to the lowest possible level.

  • Employers should ensure that employees are not exposed to any hazardous substances.

  • Employers should ensure their employees are provided with all, and any, appropriate safety equipment.

Accidents at work claim FAQs

How Much will a Personal Injury Claim Cost Me?

We understand how devastating a workplace injury can be, not only related to your physical and mental health, but to your financial circumstances as well. Being unable to work for an extended period of time, paying for rehabilitation or home adaptations, and covering everyday living expenses before compensation for a serious injury claim arrives creates a challenge for most. Our team of solicitors recognises these difficulties due to serious injury which is why we work on a no win, no fee arrangement. With a no win no fee structure, you do not pay any funds out of pocket to start your serious injury claim for compensation. Instead, you receive free legal advice until your serious injury claim is settled. Only once your accident at work claim is successful do you pay for the legal services provided. You and your loved ones will have no up-front financial risk, ensuring you can focus on the future and getting back to the life you knew before your serious injury took place. Let us handle the rest by simply getting in touch today.

Who Can Make an Accidents at Work Claim?

Anyone who has suffered an injury due an accident at work has the opportunity to bring a serious injury claim. There are, however, a few things to keep in mind. Time Restrictions on Claims – First, the injury must have taken place in the last three years for a claim for compensation to be pursued, based on the date the injury occurred. This time restriction applies to those age 18 or older. Make a Claim on Behalf of Loved One – If a loved one has experienced a serious injury and has a claim for compensation, you may start the process on their behalf. When your loved one is under the age of 18, the three-year time restriction does not start until their 18th birthday. Exceptions to the Rules – There may be some exceptions to the three-year rule for serious injury claims, so it is important to get in touch with us if you believe you have a claim for compensation. The sooner you reach out to our solicitors, the quicker we can start working on the serious injury claim for you or your loved one.

Does it matter which solicitor I choose?

If you have suffered in injury at work, it is very important that you talk to an experienced, specialist law firm like Fletchers. You should consider taking the time to research a solicitor to ensure that they have the relevant experience. Depending on your situation, charities and other similar organisations can provide you with a directory of approved solicitors and a list of questions to ask your solicitor to ensure he/she has sufficient experience / knowledge of your injury or situation.

Can I change solicitor?

It is your right, and yours alone, to decide who represents you in a claim for compensation. Using a firm without the necessary specialist expertise can prove a costly mistake. So, if you are at all unsure about the quality of legal advice you are receiving from another firm, you are perfectly within your rights to seek a second opinion and switch solicitor if you so choose.
