Advice on Claiming Compensation for Accidents at Work


If you are involved in an accident at work, it will be necessary for you to show that your injuries were caused by the negligence of your employer. Your employer is also responsible for the actions of work colleagues who cause accidents involving injury. Please remember that you have an obligation to make your employer aware of any accidents, which occur whilst at work. This information should be properly recorded in the Accident Book. Please note, your employer cannot terminate your employment if you make a claim for compensation. If you are in any doubt or concerned over this, we recommend that you consult us immediately.

If you are an employer, self-employed or in control of work premises you are required under RIDDOR to report some types of work-related accidents and accident at work, diseases and dangerous occurrences.

Reporting accident at work and ill health at work is a legal requirement under the Reporting of Injuries, Diseases and Dangerous Occurrences Regulations 1995.
