Can I Make a Claim?
If you have suffered an accident at work and it wasn’t your fault, you may be eligible to make a claim for compensation. As an employee, you have the right to a safe working environment, and your employer must take certain steps to ensure your workplace is free of any hazards. If your boss fails to comply with the rules and regulations as set out by the UK government, your health and safety could be at risk.
What can help my Claim?
There are certain things you can do following an accident at work that can increase your chances of making a successful claim.
- Seek medical advice as soon as possible. Even if your injuries do not appear severe, they may require medical attention. Keep copies of any medical records associated with your injury, as this can assist with any compensation claim you make. Bear in mind that you may also require proof from your GP if you intend to claim certain benefits whilst absent from work.
- Make a note of the contact details of any witnesses to the accident.
- Inform your employer about the accident as soon as possible and make sure they write the details of your accident and any injuries sustained in the company accident book. If your company does not have an accident book, email the details of the incident to your boss, saving a copy for your own records.
- Call us. We specialise in personal injury compensation and are experienced in pursuing successful claims.

Using our no win, no fee option, you will not have to pay any fees towards the cost of your claim. Our fee will be deducted separately at the end of a successful case, meaning you can use our first-rate services no matter how little your income.
Why Should I Make a Claim?
Should your injuries warrant taking time off work, you may suffer financial losses that impact on not just on you, but your entire family.
