Accidents at Work - Guide to making a claim

How do I make a claim for compensation?

Making a compensation claim for an accident you had at work will require you to share evidence with us to help strengthen your claim. Employment laws are in place to protect you in the event of making a claim against your employer.

The first step is getting in touch with our team and to start collecting evidence. In order to support your claim, we recommend you try and do the following:

  • Record the accident within your employer's accident book
  • List the names and addresses of any witnesses
  • Obtain photographs of the accident scene
  • Ask your employer to support you with your recovery
  • Inform the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) of the accident 

We will review the evidence and advise you whether we feel it’s worth pursuing your compensation claim. If you wish to continue with the process, we will file a claim against those responsible. We will undertake all negotiations and represent you in court if required. However, most of our personal injury claims are dealt with via out of court settlements.

If you have been injured at work as a result of your employer failing their duty of care to you, get in touch our team of experts on 0161 665 3502.
