FAQ

Most Popular Questions

Below are the frequently asked questions we are most commonly asked about in medical negligence claims.

A workplace accident is a sudden and unplanned occurrence that happens within a professional environment or during the execution of a job that leads to physical or mental injury. These incidents may occur on the business premises or at other locations where employees are engaged in work-related activities. The range of possible accidents is broad, encompassing minor injuries as well as serious, sometimes fatal, accidents.

The workplace can be the setting for various accidents, with the most frequent injuries including:

  • Slips
  • Trips
  • Falls
  • Strains
  • Sprains

 

These incidents can result from a variety of conditions such as wet floors, irregular surfaces, improper lifting techniques, and more.

Yes, if you've had a workplace accident due to your employer's negligence, you may have the right to claim compensation for injuries sustained.

If you have experienced an accident at work, there are several legal requirements and steps you should follow to file a workplace accident claim:

  1. Report the Accident:
  • You must report the accident to your employer as soon as possible. All businesses should have an accident report book where such incidents are recorded.
  • Serious accidents must be reported by your employer to the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) or local authority under Reporting of Injuries, Diseases and Dangerous Occurrences Regulations 2013 (RIDDOR).
  1. Seek Medical Attention:
  • Obtain medical attention immediately. Even if injuries seem minor, a medical record is essential for supporting your claim.
  • Ask for a copy of any medical reports, as they will be crucial when making a claim.
  1. Collect Evidence:
  • Take photographs of the accident scene and any equipment or substances involved.
  • Note down the details of any witnesses; their statements could be valuable.
  • Keep a record of expenses resulting from the injury, including loss of earnings, medical bills, and travel costs to treatment facilities.

In the event of a workplace accident, you have the right to seek compensation if the accident was due to the negligence of your employer or a fellow employee. The process can be intricate, and it's essential to understand your rights and the steps required to pursue a claim successfully.

Step 1: Report the Accident
Step 2: Seek Medical Attention
Step 3: Collect Evidence

Key Points to Remember

  • Time Limits: A claim must usually be made within three years of the date of the accident.
  • *No Win, No Fee*: Some solicitors offer conditional agreements where payment is only required if you win the case.
  • Insurance: Employers are legally obliged to have Employers’ Liability Insurance to cover compensation claims.

The process of claiming compensation for a workplace accident can be complex and time-consuming. It is often beneficial to seek professional advice to guide you through the process and ensure that your claim is handled properly and fairly. Always choose a solicitor who has proven experience in the field of workplace injury claims.

When it comes to work place accident claims, one of the most common concerns is the amount of compensation that can be received. It is important to note that each case is unique and the compensation awarded will vary depending on several factors such as the severity of the injury, the extent of the damage caused, and the impact on the victim's life. In general, compensation can cover a range of costs including medical expenses, loss of earnings, and pain and suffering. Seeking legal advice from a specialised accident at work solicitor can help to determine how much compensation you may be entitled to. They will gather evidence, assess damages, and negotiate with the other party's insurance company on your behalf to ensure that you receive a fair settlement.

  • There are strict time limits for reporting work-related accidents and making a claim. In the UK, this is typically within three years of the accident date or from when you first became aware that your injury was related to the accident at work.

The duration of an accident at work claim can vary significantly depending on the complexity of the case, the extent of the injuries, and how quickly liability is accepted by the employer or their insurance company. Generally, straightforward cases might be resolved in a few months, while more complex scenarios, especially those involving severe injuries or disputed liability, can take years. A Solicitor will prioritise your claim with clear and effective communication to keep you informed at every stage of the process. Rest assured, a solicitor will strive to expedite your claim while ensuring you receive the full compensation you're entitled to.
