Accident at work claims

Making a successful claim for an accident at work, and obtaining the maximum amount of compensation, will require you to get expert legal advice from a specialist personal injury solicitor.


Accident at work compensation

Even though this is the case, these types of claims are more common than anticipated, with employees often being unaware of the potential dangers of their work environment until an accident at work actually happens. It is also important to remember that work injuries can happen across a range of workplaces, from factories and construction sites to office-based positions. Blackwater Law are specialists when it comes to dealing with accident at work claims, so you can be sure that your work injury compensation claim is in safe hands.

Blackwater Law have a wealth of experience dealing with work injury claims, so you can be sure that your claim is dealt with professionally and quickly. Clients are advised to fill in their employer’s official accident log when accidents occur so that this vital evidence is recorded. After this is done, you can file a work accident claim form against your employer. This process is established not only to protect both workers and employers but also to ensure that both parties follow the correct procedures. Your employer, supervisor and other people in roles of authority within your workplace must keep records of:

  • work-related deaths
  • serious injuries
  • needlestick injuries
  • cases of diagnosed industrial disease
  • Certain ‘dangerous occurrences’; for instance near-miss incidents such as scaffold collapses, explosions, and escape of dangerous substances or biological agents.

Despite what many people think, making a claim for compensation against your employer will not have an impact on your financial position. All employers are required by law to take out an insurance policy which covers them against accident at work compensation claims. If your claim is successful, it will be your employer’s insurance company that will pay your compensation. You can find out how much compensation you may be eligible to receive by checking our compensation calculator.
