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.

Grieves specialist solicitors will be happy to discuss your case during an initial consultation, and provide you with a full and frank assessment of the potential of your claim.

Common Work Place Accidents

Injuries at work can result from many things including:

  1. Lifting or Manual Handling
  2. Faulty work equipment
  3. Defective Work Premises
  4. Insufficient Training
  5. Lack of Safety Equipment or Clothing
  6. Careless Acts by other workers
  7. Falls from ladders
  8. Falls from vehicles
  9. Being hit by a moving, flying or falling object
  10. Slipping, Tripping or Falling
  11. Operating an unsafe system of work
  12. Exposure to harmful and dangerous substances

Injuries at work can be caused by:

  1. Your employer
  2. A work colleague
  3. Another company working at your place of work

What should you do following an accident at work?

  1. 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.
  2. Take photographs of any visible injuries
  3. Take photographs of the accident scene and the defect which caused your accident (e.g. oil/water on the floor)
  4. Take contact details of any witnesses to the accident
  5. 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.
