Accident at Work Claims

Making a compensation claim for an accident at work

How dangerous is your job?  Do you take your life in your hands every time you clock on, or is your job supposedly a ‘safe’ occupation. Accidents at work, are one of the most common reasons for personal injury compensation claims every year, second only to road traffic accidents. No matter what industry you work in, or how ‘safe’ you think your job is, the truth is that accidents are unpredictable, they can happen anywhere, and they happen to ordinary people every day.

A safe working environment

It is the duty of the Employer to ensure, that the designated working environment remains as safe as it could possibly be. Although people regard the Health and Safety legislation as intrusive, and sometimes overbearing, it is there to ensure that your employer maintains his, or her duty of care towards your well-being, and safety while you are at work or on their premises.

Negligence

While nobody can ever predict when an accident will happen, many of them are entirely preventable and are simply the result of negligence. If your employer fails in their duty of care and you are injured at work, you may be able to claim compensation.

For this to be the case, you will need to show:

  • You were an employee
  • Your employer breached their duty of care
  • This breach caused your injury

This will indicate that a lack of care or negligence by your employer is directly responsible for the accident.  If that’s the case, then it’s time to talk to the panel Solicitors at RU1NJURED. Our experienced Grade A panel Solicitors can give you the expert advice you need, while a NO WIN NO FEE will see to the financing for our Grade A panel Solicitors to fight hard to secure you the compensation you deserve.

What should you do?

If you have had an accident at work, whether you work in construction, offices, warehouses, factories, public roads, schools or hospitals, you may have the right to claim compensation. Workers often feel that putting in a claim against their employer can jeopardise their job security, but the truth is that the vast majority of employers are more than willing to ensure you get the compensation you deserve.

Accident at work compensation

A compensation claim can provide you with the money you need to get back on your feet or pay for long-term care and rehabilitation. It also means that you can stop worrying about financial problems and focus on recovering from your illness or injury. It can also highlight a problem in the workplace or in your employer’s procedures that needs to be addressed to prevent others from suffering a similar injury. Our Grade A Panel Solicitors can give you the expert advice you need and can help you claim the compensation you deserve.
