Accident at work compensation claims should be considered by anyone who is unfortunate enough to have been injured whilst in the workplace.
But, of course, before any compensation claims can be filed, the injured party will need legal advice from a professional.
If a potential claimant is a member of a trade union they could seek advice from them with regards to sourcing a solicitor. They also always have the option of asking our panel of claims experts a question to receive a personal response within the hour.
In order to win compensation following a workplace accident the employee must prove that it was not his fault. This means somebody else was responsible, and usually that is the employer.
One reason why the employer could be culpable is the failure to provide protective equipment or clothing for their employee.
The accident must be reported within the workplace as soon as possible. Even if the injury is only minor the victim should also see a doctor as soon as possible.
Not only is this important for his personal wellbeing, the doctor’s notes will be crucial once the compensation claim is pursued.
The process of accident at work compensation claims will be started by the injured worker’s legal representative – a solicitor will put the case together.
Legal representatives should be informed, among other things, of the amount of wages lost following the accident, plus any other costs incurred because of the injury suffered by the injured worker.
Many accident at work compensation claims are settled before the case ever reaches the courts.
However, should the employer dig his heels in, the case could take from several months to several years, depending on complexity.
If you think you deserve compensation for an accident at work claim, just submit details of the case into the question box above and you will receive a personal response from a claims expert within the hour – confidential and free.
