      Accident At Work Claims

      No matter what precautions are put in place, accidents at work can and do happen under varying circumstances. Injuries caused by these work accidents can range in severity from minor lacerations and sprains to broken bones, amputations, severe burns and sometimes sadly, even fatalities.

      If you are unfortunate enough to be involved in an accident at work and you suffer from a workplace injury, you may be able to file a work accident claim for compensation.

      Can I Claim Compensation For An Accident At Work?

      In the UK, employers and business owners are legally responsible for the welfare and safety of their staff and any visitors to their premises. The legal clause states that all businesses must Accident at work claimcompulsorily hold insurance (Employers Liability Insurance) and conform to Health & Safety regulations to ensure that they meet those guidelines. If your employer failed to meet their responsibilities and negligence has led to you being injured at work, you can claim compensation by filing an accident at work claim. If your claim for a workplace injury is successful the compensation would be paid from the employers’ liability insurance.

      In certain circumstances, even if you contributed to your own accident at work, you may still be able to claim injury compensation if your employer is deemed to have been the main instigator of your personal injury at work.

      What Can I Make A Work Accident Claim For?

      You may have a valid basis for a work accident claim if you are injured at work for example for any of the below-mentioned reasons and have suffered a personal injury:

      Faulty lifting and manual handling practices brought on by lack of training
      Industrial injuries such as hand-arm vibration syndrome or vibration white finger

      Please feel free to call/contact us if you want further advice or are indeed looking for accident at work solicitors to handle a claim that you feel you may have.

      How Much Compensation For An Injury At Work?

      How much compensation you might be able to claim for an injury at work varies due to various different factors. These will include how severe your work injury is, do you need to take time off from work to recover, and if you do for how long, who else may be affected by your work injury such as family members and so forth.

      The best way to get a good idea of the amount of compensation you might receive is to have a free initial consultation with one of our solicitors or trained advisors by phone so that we can assess your situation properly.

      We can also advise you of exactly what our fees will be if you want us to take your claim on, which would be on a No Win No Fee basis. However, we have listed below various workplace injuries and the advised levels of compensation.

      Some common types of work injuries include:

      As with any personal injury claim, the amount of compensation awarded will vary from one accident at work claim to the next so it is never possible to calculate 100% accurately what compensation amount your accident at work claim might be awarded.

      However, there are brackets for which various degrees of injury will fit into which are set out by the Judicial College. These compensation payouts can be used as a guide by accident at work solicitors to provide early estimates on various kinds of accidents at work.

      There is a work accident compensation calculator provided below that will help you get a rough idea of various compensation payout amounts for different types of injuries at work.

      *Please note that the accident at work claim calculator should be used as a guide only and not be taken as a fact that your claim if successful would be awarded the same amount of compensation as shown in the table above.

      Work Accident Claim Time Limit

      In the UK there is a standard 3-year time limit within which you can file a work accident claim. If you have not initiated legal proceedings within 3 years of suffering your injury at work, your case may be considered to be time-barred and you may not be entitled to any compensation.

      The 3-year deadline commences from the date that the accident occurred, or from the date on which you realised that your injury was associated with the workplace accident. The second clause is particularly useful in cases that have involved exposure to asbestos. This is because you might not find out for several years after exposure to asbestos that you have contracted mesothelioma, an asbestos-related disease.

      In the case of fatal accident claims, the 3-year limitation commences from the date of death. In case the death was due to mesothelioma, the 3-year deadline would commence from the date of the post mortem as the mesothelioma may have gone undiagnosed until they died and it was only discovered during the post mortem.

      If the person dies while in the process of dealing with their work accident case, the 3-year deadline begins from the date of their death to allow their family time to continue with the claim.

      Every personal injury compensation case has its own circumstances and will proceed differently depending upon these circumstances and the reactions of the employers. While some personal injury at work cases are settled amicably and within a matter of months, others can take several years.
