Employers are obligated to ensure the health and safety of their employees, contractors and visitors at all times.
Injuries and illness at work can be caused by multiple factors, including lack of training, faulty equipment and exposure to dangerous substances. By law they are required to have Employer’s Liability Insurance cover, so if you’ve suffered as a result of your working conditions you can make a claim against this.
Our experienced team will guide you through the process. They will work tirelessly to secure the compensation you’re due for any general damages for pain, suffering and loss of amenity you’ve incurred because of their negligence.
The Accident Book is the main document used in any compensation claim. Although there is no legal requirement for it, its absence can be an obstacle when claiming compensation.
But all is not lost if your incident wasn’t recorded.
Create a hand written account of the accident and give a photocopy to your company’s management, making sure one of your superiors makes a record of the accident.
Plus, we advise you to get prompt medical treatment where necessary.
Finally, it’s also important to take photos of the accident scene and its consequences.
