Common types of accidents at work
If you have been injured in an accident at work, our specialist solicitors can advise you on the prospects of a successful claim.
Some of the most common types of accidents at work include:
Can you claim for an accident at work?
You may be entitled to claim compensation resulting from an accident at work if you have been injured as a result of health and safety procedures not being followed.
It may also be possible to claim if a workplace accident made an existing injury or condition worse. Your employer has a legal duty to ensure you’re safe at work. In practice this means that they have a responsibility to:
- Make sure you’re properly trained
- Provide you with suitable work and personal protective equipment
- Undertake risk assessments
- Manage business activities to minimise risks to your health and safety
- Provide safe working systems
How long do I have to make my work accident claim?
The law in England & Wales states that there is a 3 year period from the date of the accident in which you are able to make a claim.
This 3 year claim deadline can also commence from the date you first realised the symptoms of your injury or illness may be linked with your work.
Every work related accident claim is different and has its own set of circumstances. We recommend you seek legal advice as soon as possible to avoid falling foul of these strict claim time limits.
How much compensation can I expect for my accident at work claim?
The amount of compensation that you can expect to receive depends on a number of factors, including the severity of your injuries, your recovery, whether you have lost earnings as a result of the accident and the cost of any long term medical treatment which may be required.
