Claiming for a workplace injury can make things better for others

Making a personal injury claim can be a good way to force your employer to recognise a dangerous situation.

It gives them a strong financial incentive to take action and prevent other workers from being injured in similar circumstances. This could be to issue new equipment, improve conditions in the workplace, or introduce new, safer ways of working.

In this way, your accident at work claim could benefit your co-workers as well.

Accidents at work claims FAQ

Employers have to take care of their workers. If they fail to do so, they can be held legally responsible for the harm that a worker suffers as a result.

Your employer may be liable for your injuries if they failed to:

  • Properly assess risks to their workers
  • Operate a safe working environment
  • Plan or implement safe systems of work
  • Provide or maintain appropriate safety equipment
  • Provide proper training to you or other staff
  • Arrange adequate numbers of staff

Employers can also be held responsible for the behaviour of their workers. So if you were injured through the conduct of one of your co-workers, your employer may also be liable for the harm you have suffered.

Legal time limits apply to all personal injury claims. In general, you must settle your claim or commence court proceedings within 3 years of the date of your accident. Missing this deadline is likely to prevent you from claiming compensation. However, there are situations where a different time limit will apply. In any event, it is always best to seek advice on your potential claim as soon as possible. Get in contact with us to discuss your circumstances.

Compensation for accident at an work (and other personal injury claims) is based on the harm you have suffered because of the accident.

This will include your injuries, but can also include financial losses you have incurred as a result, such as lost earnings and treatment expenses.

However, it also means that the ‘value’ of your claim will depend on the money you have lost and the extent of your injuries.
