It is your employer’s responsibility to provide you with a safe place to work and safe equipment to work with. You also need to be sufficiently trained to carry out our duties. It is your right to go back home unharmed after fulfilling your duties. However, if you have been injured at work due to your employer’s negligence, you have the right to seek legal action against your employer with the help of personal injury solicitors. In the following text, we have listed down the stepwise procedure for making a personal injury claim for a workplace accident.
Step 1; Report the Accident:-
If you have suffered an injury at work, make sure you report the accident to your employer as soon as possible. This may be your superior, your colleague or a designated medical services provider. It is important that you report the accident.
Step 2; Use the Accident Book:-
Any injuries sustained at work (both minor and major) need to be recorded in the designated “accident book”. It is also your employer’s responsibility to have explained the procedure for recording the injury in this book at the time you were hired.
Step 3; Make Detailed Notes:-
Make sure that you make a detailed note of how the accident happened. If possible, take photographs of the accident or draw a plan of the area where the accident occurred. Personal Injury Solicitors consider this information very important when making a claim.
Step 4; Record Witnesses:-
If there were witnesses around at the time of the accident, make sure you note down their name and contact information so that their testimonies can be used to assist with your claim.
Step 5; Seek Professional Help
