If you suffer an accident at work you should ensure that the accident is entered into the Accident Book. Where an accident is caused by defective equipment or damaged flooring (internal or external) you should ask your employer to take photographs showing the condition at the time of your accident. This will ensure there is no dispute at a later stage.
If the accident was not your fault and you suffer a workplace injury you may be able to recover compensation. If the accident was your fault or you contributed in some way to the accident you still may be able to obtain compensation if your employer failed to provide you with reasonable protection.
You should contact your solicitor who will advise you on the prospects of succeeding with your claim and the process of bringing a claim. If you decide to proceed, we will then send a Letter of Claim to your employer.
Nockolds can liaise with the Health & Safety Executive or instruct an expert in Health and Safety or your particular industry to investigate what has happened and whether your employer is liable.
