Can I Make a Claim for My Injury at Work?
Regardless of whether they are an employer, colleague or supervisor, if another person was responsible for your accident it is highly likely you will be eligible to claim compensation.

- Lifting or Manual Handling

- Insufficient Training
- Lack of Safety Equipment or Clothing

What should you do following an accident at work?
- Report the accident to your employer and get it accurately recorded in the accident book. Your employer is required by law to make such a record and you may need to use this record as evidence in support of your claim.
- Take photographs of any visible injuries
- Take photographs of the accident scene and the defect which caused your accident (e.g. oil/water on the floor)
- Take contact details of any witnesses to the accident
- Keep any receipts for expenses that you have incurred as a result of the accident (e.g. bus tickets, taxi receipts for essential journeys or receipts for prescriptions) or items that may have been damaged in the accident (e.g. clothing or jewellery)
If you have suffered an injury at work, whether it fits into one of the above categories or not, get in touch with a solicitor as soon as possible to discuss a potential compensation claim.
