Your employer by law will carry an insurance policy commonly known as 'employers' liability cover', which protects your employer should an accident or health issue arise on their premises. This means when you make a claim for compensation due to an accident at work, it is not your employer who will pay out your claim, but rather their insurance company.

No Win, No Fee Accident At Work Claims

The majority of cases our solicitors take on at Accident Assistance are funded through a No Win No Fee agreement*, also known as a 'conditional fee agreement'. This means that if we accept your case, you will not pay a penny if your claim is unsuccessful.

You may be entitled to claim compensation if you've had an accident at work through no fault of your own if:

  • The accident was within the last 3 years.
  • You were a full-time / part-time employee.
  • You were a permanent / temporary worker.
  • You were a self-employed contractor working at the premises.
  • You were visiting the business at the time of the accident.

In most instances, the case will be brought against the company employers' liability insurance, which means your employer will not be left out of pocket following a claim. To make a claim, call 0161 763 8260 or tell us about your accident and we will call you back.

How To Claim For A Workplace Injury

To ensure that your claim has the highest possible chance of success, you will need to provide important details about your accident at work, including where and how the accident happened, any injuries sustained due to the accident and your employers details.

If there were any witnesses, or if you have access to CCTV footage that may have seen the incident, you can use these as evidence to further support your claim. Any photos taken relating to the accident should also be provided.

Should you have required medical treatment following your injuries either at A&E or a visit to the doctors surgery, we will ask for these details so that we can attain any relevant information to help support your work accident claim.

If you require post-accident medical treatments or rehabilitation support, it is imperative to contact us as soon as possible so we can assist you with your injuries and recovery. You can contact us on 0161 763 8260.

We appreciate these cases require sensitive handling. It could be that you have sustained a serious life changing injury, or perhaps you are worried about what your employer’s reaction will be if you make a claim. Our solicitors will be there to hold your hand every step of the way and we will assign a specialist to assist you in your case for compensation.

Negligence by employers often causes workplace accidents

The main causes of accidents at work are: slips, trips and falls from high buildings or ledges, handling goods and lifting heavy objects. In 2013 & 2014 The Health and Safety Executive have stated that approximately 629,000 employees were hurt in work, of which 148,000 led to more than 7 days absence. This had an economic cost to Britain of £14.2 billion in working days lost and NHS funding.

An employer is held accountable for making sure that the working environment is safe for employees and should make sure that it is free from danger at all times. If for example, there is loose cabling running along the floor, an employee could trip over the wire and land on a machine causing severe injury. It is the employer’s responsibility to take precautionary measures in order to guard their work force from any harm.

Neglecting an area where work is conducted can prove costly to an employer because they will be liable for leaving their employees vulnerable to potential injury. It’s important that a business owner performs regular safety checks and abides by regulations within their company to prevent accidents from happening.

Proper supervision and training given to new colleagues is a measure an employer can put in place to make sure they are safe, especially if they are handling machinery. Safety instructions should be present for cleaning up any liquid spills and for coning areas where the floors are wet. Making sure stair ways are well lit, handrails and fittings are secure, plus watching out for worn carpets may also prevent unnecessary injury.
