Accidents at Work Claims

What is an Accident at Work Claim?

If you have had an accident at work you may be able to make a claim if you’ve been injured as a result of health and safety procedures not being followed, faulty equipment, premises, or actions of a fellow employee, you could be eligible to claim compensation.


Many of us depend on our income, and taking time off to recover from a work accident can cause a lot of stress for the individual and their family.

When to Make a Work Injury Claim

We understand that contacting a law firm is daunting, especially when discussing a potentially embarrassing and/or traumatic experience. However, our solicitors and specialists are approachable, friendly, and down to earth. We are here to provide expert legal advice to all individuals who may have an accident at work claim.

Your employer has a legal duty to ensure you do not suffer accidents at work, and they have a responsibility to:

  • Provide you with work and personal protective equipment
  • Ensure you’re fully trained for your position
  • Complete risk assessments
  • Manage business activities to minimise risks to your health and safety
  • Create safe working systems and environments

How Long Do You Have to Make a Work Injury Claim?

The standard time limit for accidents at work claims is three years from the date of the incident. There are some exceptions depending on circumstances, however, it’s best to contact us as soon as possible.
