Can I Make an Accident at Work Compensation Claim?

If you have been injured whilst at work in the last three years, and you believe the injury wasn’t your fault, it is likely you are eligible to make an accident at work compensation claim.

This is true, in certain circumstances, even when you believe you were partly to blame for the accident. Your employer may still be deemed to have been the main culprit of the accident, whether the working conditions forced you into a mistake or you were not given the proper training and/or safety equipment.

Claiming for compensation after a workplace accident is important as we all depend on our income. Being injured at work and having to take unexpected time off work can leave you out of pocket and feeling stressed. You should be compensated for any pain and suffering, along with any loss of earnings.

 

What if my workplace is high-risk – Does it not come with the job?

Some might argue that every accident in the workplace is preventable. This is a bit of a stretch, as accidents can occur at any time for a number of reasons, especially in high-risk working environments like factories.

However, most accidents are definitely avoidable, even in high-risk workplaces. Better health and safety preparation, HSE compliant safety measures, more thorough training, and better upkeep of machinery could all prevent accidents from occurring.

So, no matter how high-risk your job is, everyone is entitled to feel as safe as they possibly can be whilst on the job.

 

Is There a Time Limit for Making a Workplace Accident Claim?

Yes. The time limit for claiming compensation from a workplace accident injury is:

  • Over 18 – Three years from the date the workplace accident happened, or, three years from the moment you were aware of the injuries – The latter of which is important for industrial diseases
  • Under 18 – Three years from your 18th So, before your 21st birthday

There are a few exceptions to the three-year rule. If, for example, you were injured abroad whilst working, the time limit for making a claim might be shorter. If your injury was down to work equipment that had a manufacturing defect, the time limit may also be different.

The best practice is to get in touch as soon as you know you have suffered a workplace injury.

 

How much is My Accident At Work Claim Worth?

Every workplace accident claim differs in terms of severity, the effect it had on the victim, and the liability admitted by the employer. Our panel of dedicated accident at work solicitors will work with you, going through all of the evidence, to come to an appropriate sum and get you the compensation you deserve.

 

Can my employer sack me if I make a workplace accident claim?

In theory, no they cannot. If they do sack you as a result of an accident at work claim, then that would be classed as unfair dismissal and you should seek further employment law advice. Our panel would be more than happy to put you in contact with an expert employment solicitor if that were to happen.
