Struck in the workplace – your rights to claim compensation

Under UK law, employers have a legal duty to ensure the health and safety of employees. Health and Safety at Work regulations establish the framework for workplace safety. If you have been injured due to unsafe conditions or negligence on your employer’s part, you may have a valid claim for personal injury compensation.

The compensation you may receive could be based on factors such as the severity of your injuries, and the amount of any medical expenses, lost earnings, and potential long-term effects on your ability to work. As a leading firm of personal injury solicitors, we can help you maximise the appropriate amount of compensation to claim.

Advice for what to do after a workplace accident

It is crucial to report the accident to your employer as soon as possible. By law, employers are required to keep a record of workplace accidents in an accident book or make some form of digital record. Ensure that you provide accurate and detailed information about the incident, including the date, time, location, and circumstances leading to the accident. If you have yet to do this, you should do this as soon as you now can.

Your health and well-being should always be your top priority. Seek medical attention immediately, even if your injuries seem minor at first. Medical records can serve as vital evidence when pursuing a compensation claim, as they can help to establish the extent of your injuries and the impact on your health.

If your accident was caused by a serious breach of health and safety regulations, you have the option to report the incident to the Health and Safety Executive (HSE). The HSE is the UK government agency responsible for enforcing workplace health and safety standards. Their involvement could further strengthen your case by highlighting the severity of any safety violations.
