Can You Claim For An Accident At Work?
You may be able to make an accident at work claim if you’ve been injured as a result of health and safety procedures not being followed. In some instances you may even be able to claim if you caused the accident, for instance if your injuries were made worse because of a piece of faulty equipment.
It may also be possible to claim if a workplace accident made an existing injury or condition worse.
Your employer has a legal duty to ensure you’re safe at work. In practice this means that they have a responsibility to:
Make sure you’re properly trained
Provide you with suitable work and personal protective equipment
Undertake risk assessments
Manage business activities to minimise risks to your health and safety
Provide safe working systems

How Long Do You Have To Make An Injury At Work Claim?
The standard time limit for starting a workplace accident claim is three years from the date you were injured.
However, there are some exceptions to this:
Mental Capacity – if your loved one no longer has the mental capacity to make a claim themselves (often the case following a traumatic brain injury), then there is no time limit on making a claim.
Accidents While Working Abroad – if your accident happened while working abroad, the time limit for making a claim may be shorter.
Defective Work Equipment – if your injury was caused by a piece of equipment that had a manufacturing defect, the time limit may be different.
If you’ve been injured with an accident at work it’s best to
contact us as soon as possible, to ensure we can begin your claim within the relevant time limits. No Win No Fee Accident At Work Claims
Most of the workplace accident claims we handle are on a
no win no fee basis. That means that there’s nothing to pay upfront, and nothing to pay if your claim is unsuccessful*.
If you win your case, your opponent will pay the most of your legal fees, with the remainder coming out of your compensation award. We’ll keep you fully updated throughout your claim, so you know how much compensation you are likely to receive.
