An employer has a duty of care to make sure they provide a safe working environment to minimise the risk of potential accidents. These accidents can range from common slips and trips through to more serious injuries which can cause not only long-term suffering but also the associated stresses of financial losses, such as loss of earnings.
After you’ve suffered an accident at work, the first thing you’ll likely want to do is get medical attention from a first aider in the workplace and also then make sure you see a doctor or other healthcare professional for your injury.
It’s also vital to report your injury to your employer. If they have an accident book, make sure it is recorded there. If the company you work for has more than 10 employees, they are required to put your injury in the accident book. This can end up being an important piece of evidence in a personal injury claim.
You can also take photos and video of your injury after you have an accident.
We offer to act in these cases on a No Win No Fee basis and a charge is ordinarily only payable should we succeed in recovering a financial benefit on your behalf.
