Accidents at Work Claims

Employers’ liability insurance was made compulsory in 1969 so that innocent victims of accidents at work could be sure of receiving compensation for their injuries. When you make a claim, it should be met by your employer’s insurer – not your employer themselves. If you do not claim after a set period, generally three years, your right to compensation may be lost forever.

Legal experts in work accident claims

Your employer should be taking reasonable steps to prevent accidents at work by carrying out regular Health and Safety and Risk Assessments, providing the right equipment for you to do your job and ensuring that equipment is safe and properly maintained - as well as providing proper training, safety wear and protective equipment.

Additionally, your employer must also make sure the workplace is safe and tidy, as well as devising, implementing and enforcing a safe system of work. Employers have specific responsibilities regarding heavy lifting, working at height and the actions of other employees. We can advise you on whether you have a valid claim for compensation following an accident at work.
