Guidelines for making a workplace accident claim

In our latest article, our legal experts provide you with some guidelines that you can follow to help you make a successful claim for an accident at work.

In the UK, the law entitles British workers to pursue claims for non-fault accidents at work, providing injuries sustained were caused due to the employer’ negligence. Therefore it is important when pursuing a claim for a workplace accident that you provide your solicitor with as much supportive evidence as possible.

Here’s a quick guide for you to follow:

Make sure you report the accident

Firstly, where possible, it is vital that you make sure that any injury you have suffered as a result of your accident at work is reported and recorded in the accident at work book.

This should note details of the accident, including when and where it happened and the injuries you sustained.

If the accident has been recorded this can be used as evidence to support your claim, allow your employer to investigate the accident and to also put measures in place to prevent a similar incident from occurring again.

Get as much evidence as you can

In addition to this, as with any personal injury claim, it is important to gather as much evidence as you possibly can to support your claim. This may include:

  • Photographs of the scene of the accident;
  • Photographs of the injuries you sustained;
  • Witness statements from those who may have seen the accident;
  • A record of any hospital or doctor’s appointments you have attended;
  • A record of any medical treatment you have paid for;
  • A record of any financial losses you have suffered (such as loss of earnings).
