Accidents Claims in the Workplace
Sadly, accidents in the workplace are exceptionally common often due to negligence or your employer failing in their duty of care.This is what one of their legal representatives has to say on the matter:
“Your employer has a duty to make sure that you, along with all members of staff are protected in the workplace. Your employer should make sure that the workplace is free from hazards, all employees are suitably trained for their role, and that proper health and safety procedures are in place as well as proper health and safety equipment.”
“If your employer fails in their duty of care or if you are injured as a result of carelessness, the team of expert lawyers at the Accident Claims Web can help you with accident at work compensation.”
To make a personal injury claim following an accident in the workplace, the team at the Accident Claims Web will require certain types of evidence to build the strongest personal injury claim. To obtain the maximum amount of compensation following an accident in the workplace your solicitor may require:
- A medical report- If you are injured we strongly advise that you seek treatment from a medical expert as they can assess the extent of your injuries and ensure you get the best treatment to make a recovery.
- Witness statements- To prove how your accident occurred we may require witness statements or contact details from witnesses who saw your incident.
- Photographic evidence- This can show the full extent of your injury and even show how your accident occurred e.g. a hazard in the workplace. Any similar evidence such as CCTV could also be used.
- A copy of a note of the accident or proof of the incident in the Accident Report Book
- Any other evidence that could support your claim
How much Could your Personal Injury Claim be Worth?
It is difficult to assess exactly what your personal injury claim could be worth as no personal injury claim is alike.
Below is a video from their online marketing team which goes into a little detail about how they work and operate.
A Professional Team of Solicitors
However, the team of expert solicitors will be able to investigate your case and provide a rough estimate based on their years of experience and knowledge of the previous cases.
However, and again, when making a personal injury claim, it is possible to claim for more than just your injuries. You can claim for damages if you have been unable to work, and unable to earn, if your injuries have left you unable to do certain activities and if there was any damage to your personal belongings in the accident.
To claim for further damages, such as loss of earnings, you should provide bank statements and proof to our team of expert solicitors.
Do I Need a Personal Injury Lawyer?
Many people believe that if they are injured they do not need to enlist the services of a personal injury lawyer and that they will be granted what they are owed in compensation. This, however, is not always the case, and such claims can often be exceptionally drawn out and complex, especially if one party denies the allegations.
Often, many accident and injury claims are resolved outside of court through a settlement agreement. A settlement agreement resolves the dispute, normally in return for capital.
Following the signing of such an agreement, a settlement is reached, and you are not able to take further legal action. Therefore, it is imperative that you have a solicitor present. A lawyer will be able to inform you of exactly what your claim is worth and what would be an adequate settlement.
