How Do Accidents at Work Happen?

Accidents are an unfortunate reality in life, and they can occur just as frequently in the workplace. Work-related accidents, particularly warehouse accidents, are among the most prevalent. What makes workplace accidents especially distressing is that employees should rightfully expect a safe environment while carrying out their duties.

Employers have a duty of care, and as such, must take every precaution to ensure they provide a safe working environment for all their employees. It is also their responsibility to provide them with adequate training, and equip them with the appropriate safety equipment. Failing to fulfil these obligations could result in liability if an accident does occur, potentially leading to compensation claims for the injured party.

According to HSE, in 2023 the main causes of workplace injuries were as follows: 

  • Slips,Trips and Falls 32%
  • Injuries resulting from handling or lifting 17%
  • Workers being struck by vehicles 11%
  • Falls from height 8%
  • Injuries as a result of acts of violence 8%

Our dedicated team can provide further details and guidance on pursuing compensation for an accident on a no win no fee basis. Don’t hesitate to reach out to us today for more information.

    What Accidents At Work Can I Claim Compensation For?

    An accident at work involving your employer or the company you work for can be devastating.

    Accidents at work cover a broad spectrum of circumstances, these could include:

    • A slip or fall at work.
    • Being struck by a falling object at work.
    • An accident involving dangerous machinery or equipment in the workplace.
    • Manual Handling and Lifting accidents

    Could I Claim for Slips, Trips and Falls in the Workplace?

    Whilst slips trips and falls can happen anywhere, it is no more common than in the workplace where an employee can sustain a injury just about anywhere on the body, even small injuries such as a metatarsal injury that you may consider insignificant that may later become a burden as a result of a workplace accident can be a claim for compensation. This is why it is important upon seeking medical advice that your injuries are documented so there is proof that a foot injury occurred and you have solid evidence for a slip trip and fall claim.

    How Long Do I Have to Make an Accidents at Work Claim?

    As a general rule, you should make an accident at work claim no more than three years after the event; this is known as the limitation period. However, there are a couple of exceptions to this which are: 

    • If you were under 18 at the time of the accident, you will have until your 21st birthday to bring forward a claim.
    • If you don’t have the mental capacity to make a claim yourself, the limitation period could be suspended.

    The sooner you begin proceedings, the greater chance you have of making a successful claim. Over time, evidence can be lost and successfully proving your eligibility for compensation can be more difficult. If you think you may be entitled to claim after being injured in an accident at work, don’t delay – contact our solicitors today on 0800 699 0079 or via our online contact form and we’ll be happy to help!

    Unfortunately, there is no definitive answer to this question.The timeframe can vary depending on a number of different factors. These include things like: 

    The severity of your injury; more severe injuries that require extensive medical treatment can often take longer to settle than minor injury claims that can be relatively straightforward. 

    Whether the other party disputes the claim or not: If the other party admits liability a compensation amount can usually be agreed by negotiation avoiding the need to go to court. This expedites the procedure and usually means a quicker settlement.
