We receive lots of questions about accidents and injuries at work.
Here are our commonly asked questions about making a claim for an injury at work and how the process works.
There’s plenty that can go wrong in the workplace. From construction sites to accidents in the office, there are a wide variety of injuries you may receive at work.
Our personal injury solicitors are experienced in dealing with both straightforward and complex accident at work cases, ranging from slips and trips to fatal accidents.
In most circumstances, you will have three years from the date of your accident at work to make a claim, or three years from the first date you became aware you have developed a condition from your working conditions in the past.
This is a complex area of law, so it’s important to get in touch at the earliest opportunity so we can advise you on how to take your claim forward.
In some circumstances, it is still possible to make a claim even if you were partly responsible for your accident. This is known as contributory negligence, and you and your employer can both accept a share of the blame.
If the accident was entirely you fault, such as by working under the influence or purposefully ignoring safety guidance, it is unlikely that you will be able to make an accident at work claim. Contact our workplace injury solicitors today to assess if you have a potential claim.
The compensation you receive for an accident at work will depend on the nature of your injury. There are a wide range of contributing factors that can affect the amount you can claim for, from your involvement in the accident to whether adequate PPE was issued.
