How to Pursue at Work Accident Claim

It is necessary to claim compensation for injuries at work resulting from the negligence of your employer. Often these injuries will render you incapable of working for a period of time causing you financial losses, thus it is important to claim compensation to recover from these losses.

Common injuries that can occur at a workplace relate to back pains and injured hands. Such injuries can be caused due to trolleys, trucks, lifts and conveyers. MSD’s (Musculoskeletal disorders) or back pains are a very common type of injury suffered by employees. Accidents in the hand can be caused due to equipment and machinery defects. It is necessary to prove that the accident was caused by the negligence of the employer.

This is why it becomes necessary for the employee to have some evidence of the negligence of the employer pertaining to the work related injury. The evidence can be in the form of witnesses, previous similar incidents and employer’s logs.

Employees often feel some trepidation about pursuing such cases against their employers. This may be because they fear that they will not be able to return to work after the accident and will be victimised by their employer. However it is important to pursue a claim for compensation for your injuries and losses. Most employers will have insurance policies to provide for such compensation claims.

The employer has to fulfil a legal requirement of providing the employee with a safe workplace, competent co workers, adequate training equipment and materials. If an employer breaches their duty they must compensate the employee for pain, suffering, loss of wages and medical expenses. Compensation also covers future loss of earnings and future medical and treatment costs. Employees can pursue these claims with the help of no win, no fee Solicitors.
