Accident at work claims
If you have suffered an accident at work that has resulted in injury that wasn’t your fault you could be able to make a claim. Accidents at work can leave you in a position where you are unable to work due to injuries that can range in severity from minor lacerations and sprains to broken bones, amputations, severe burns and sometimes sadly, even fatalities.
No matter what precautions are put in place, accidents at work can and do happen under varying circumstances. Injuries that are caused by these work accidents must be claimed against if they were through no fault of your own.
Workplace Injury Claims
In the UK, all employers and business owners have a legal responsibility for the welfare and safety of their staff and any visitors that enter their premises. It is stated in the legal clause that all businesses must compulsorily hold Employers Liability Insurance and conform to Health & Safety regulations to ensure that they meet the correct guidelines.
Do you think that your employer has failed to meet their responsibilities? Do you feel that your employer has been negligent which has resulted in you being injured in an accident at work? If you have answered yes to those questions then you can claim compensation by filing a work accident claim. If your claim for a work injury is successful the compensation would be paid from the employers liability insurance.
What if I am partly to blame for a workplace accident?
In certain circumstances, you might have contributed to your own accident at work. However, you may still be able to claim injury compensation if your employer is deemed to have been the main instigator of your personal injury at work.
