Types of Accident at Work Claims

Here at Hampson Hughes Solicitors, we have helped many clients around England and Wales to make successful compensation claims with regards to an accident they suffered at work. There are a range of different injuries that can be suffered through a workplace accident, but some of the most common injuries that lead to a workplace personal injury claim include:

  • Crush injuries, often to fingers and/or hands
  • Soft tissue damage, sprains and fractures
  • Serious injuries, including head injuries
  • Injuries to the neck, back and/or limbs

Having built up a wealth of experience in support many individuals through their personal injury claims, including many suffered in the workplace, we have a strong track record in successful accident at work claims. You can contact our team to find out more about our legal services, as well as find further case information in the section to the right.

  • What are the common causes of an accident at work claim?

    There are a variety of different causes of accident at work claims, with a wide range of different situations in effect depending on the industry and job role. You can speak to one of our workplace injury solicitors to get guidance on the specific claim type you should pursue, but some of the most common reasons for an accident at work include:

    • Faulty machinery
    • Item falling from overhead
    • A person falling from height
    • Wet or uneven surfaces causing slips, trips or falls
    • Being struck by a moving vehicle
    • Lack of proper safety training
    • Lack of supervision
    • Improper working practices

    This is not an exhaustive list, so even if your cause of injury does not appear here, you may still have a case to pursue a workplace accident compensation claim. Get in touch with our expert team of personal injury solicitors and they will be able to advise you on our range of legal services.

  • How much is an accident at work claim worth?

    The amount of compensation that you would receive for a successful accident at work compensation claim will depend largely on the type and extent of the injury or injuries you sustained during the accident. You can speak to us in more detail about the details of your case via a free consultation, where we will be able to advise you on your legal options and the likely compensation amount from a successful settlement.

    For now, you can find out an estimate of how much compensation (on average) your injury is likely to be worth by using our compensation calculator – but please note, this is only a guide, rather than a guarantee.

  • What evidence can support an accident at work claim?

    Where possible, Hampson Hughes Solicitors would advise you to begin gathering evidence as soon as you can, anything that can work in support of your workplace accident claim, with key evidence types including:

    • Reporting your injury or illness to your employer and make sure they record it in the company’s accident book
    • Taking photos of any injuries you sustained in the accident
    • Making a note of any visits to your GP or physiotherapist following the accident
    • Keep any documents relating to your medical care – prescription orders, receipts, x-rays etc.
    • Keep any letters from your employer evidencing lost working hours and income
    • Keep receipts for any other out of pocket expenses you incurred as a result of your accident such as taxi fares etc.

    For further Information on evidence gathering, or any other aspect of pursuing a workplace accident claim, you can call 0800 888 6888 or email [email protected] to speak to one of our experienced workplace injury lawyers.

Piotr Operacz

Fantastic service, the attention to all the details was super impressive. They kept me updated throughout the whole process and got my case solved really quickly. I can't recommend them highly enough!

Stephen McNorton

Great service from start to finish. My solicitor was always happy to explain what was happening and in the end, he got me more compensation than what the insurance company were going to offer me. Glad I used them to look after my claim and I've just had my cheque earlier than expected today!!
