Can I Make an Accident at Work Claim?

Have you had an accident at work that wasn’t your fault?

If you’ve been injured at work within the last three years, you might be able to make a work injury claim. Whether you’ve suffered an accident due to unsafe working conditions or due to injuries built up over time, the Compensation Experts can help you to make a claim for accident at work compensation.

Injuries at work often occur due to employer negligence, because it’s the employer’s responsibility to make your workplace environment a safe space.

If your claim is successful, you could receive compensation for an injury that was not your fault. The compensation you receive covers any medical expenses, loss in pay or any emotional or physical pain you might have experienced.

Examples of Injuries at Work

You might wonder what kind of injuries qualify for an accident at work claim. The severity of work injuries we see in compensation claims can range from mild to severe – but the one thing all these cases have in common is that the accident at work could have been avoided.

As long as the work injury was not your fault, and you suffered significant damage either physically, emotionally or financially, you may have a case for a work accident compensation claim.

There are several responsibilities an employer must uphold to make the work environment injury free, including:

If the employer doesn’t provide the above, the workplace environment could become unsafe, and, as a consequence, the employer is negligent in their duty of care.

In addition to your accident at work claim, in some situations there could be a case for criminal negligence. Criminal negligence would occur if, for example, your employer was made aware of a serious health/safety violation, but ignored the issue or covered it up.

Contact us today for accident at work claims, and we’ll put you in touch with expert workplace injury solicitors to plan your potential compensation case.

Some workplaces – like warehouses, construction sites and factories – may be more likely environments for an accident at work. But this doesn’t mean that you can’t suffer a work injury in an office environment too.

If any workplace is unsafe and an accident occurs, your employer may be liable for a workplace injury claim.

Here are some of the most common work injuries that we see, any of which could be the basis of an accident at work claim:

If you are currently experiencing or have experienced any of the above, contact us to start your accident at work claim today. Don’t be a victim of workplace negligence; claim compensation to cover any pain or suffering, and take the necessary steps to safeguard your health.

It’s also important to remember that injuries at work can build up over time. They aren’t always the result of a single action, but if your employer has you performing unsafe repetitive action, then you may be in a position to seek injury at work compensation.

We have plenty of accidents at work compensation examples from cases we’ve seen, but some of the most common injuries are:

If your employer fails to educate you about these long–term injuries at work, then you have the potential to make a claim. Please contact us to start your work injury claim today.

Accident at work compensation amounts

Because work injuries and cases vary, it’s difficult to provide a definitive accident at work claim calculator. Your case and the amount of compensation you’re eligible for depends on:

  • The type and severity of your injury
  • Any medical expenses incurred
  • Loss of professional earnings (current and future)
  • Travel expenses between medical appointments
  • The cost of any adjustments you’ve had to make to your home
