Types of Work Accident Claims
If you have been seriously injured in an accident at work, which was preventable and not your fault, then you may be entitled to make a claim against your employer for compensation.

Your employer owes you a duty of care
You may be entitled to claim compensation if you have been injured as a result of health and safety procedures not being followed correctly or if a workplace accident made an existing injury or condition worse.
Your employer has a legal duty to ensure you’re safe at work and have a responsibility to:
- Make sure you’re properly trained in how to do your job, which means providing you with sufficient training in the machinery you use, manual handling, Health & Safety
- Provide you with suitable personal protective equipment (PPE)
- Undertake risk assessments before you carry out tasks
- Manage business activities to minimise risks to your health and safety
- Provide safe working systems
Concerned about claiming against your employer?
If you are concerned about claiming against your employer, don’t be.
All employers in England & Wales have employer’s liability insurance in place to protect themselves in the event an employee is seriously injured at work. It is this insurance that pays your compensation, not them personally. They are not allowed to discriminate against you if you decide to make a claim.
Call us on now on 01507 609027 or submit an online enquiry using the form on the right of this page and one of our expert work accident claims team will contact you at your convenience.
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 so we always recommend you seek legal advice as soon as possible, to avoid your claim falling outside this deadline.
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 type of accident you have been involved in, the severity of your injuries and how well you recover.
If you have been unable to work as a result of your accident, or if you think that you will not be able to work for the foreseeable future then we can also claim for a loss of earnings on your behalf.
When factoring in loss of past and future earnings and pensions, work accident claims can be valued at several million pounds.
