Work Accident Compensation Claims
Article by Britclaims
If you are unfortunate enough to be involved in an accident at work, which was not your fault and you suffer from a workplace injury, you may be able to make a personal injury claim for compensation.
An employer must always carry out a risk assessment in the form of an investigation to identify whether any particular act or operation involves a risk of injury to any employee. If they fail to do so and an employee is injured, the employer will be liable.
Your employer must check walkways and exits to make sure they are clear and free from any substances likely to cause you to slip. They must provide adequate and suitable washing facilities. Your employer must take care to cover any dangerous substances to avoid spillages. They must also ensure there is no risk of heavy items being placed up high where they could fall and cause injury. Safety measures have increased in recent years in factory environments to limit the amount of accidents that happen. However accidents do still occur. Most factory accidents can be put down to
inadequate or lack of protective equipment
floors that are not designed to cope with the working environment
Accidents that happen in factories due to lack of care on your employer’s behalf can leave them open to compensation claims.
As with all accident compensation claims, you would need to prove that your injury, illness or disease was caused as a result of the negligence of another party (in this case your employer) and once you appoint a personal injury solicitor, they will assist you in compiling your evidence and presenting it to the third party insurers.
Every personal injury compensation claim is very different and while some are settled within a matter of months, others can take years. Most claims for workplace accidents and workplace injuries are settled out of Court; however, some will need to progress this far.
