Employers have a duty of care to provide safe working environments for their employees. All employers are legally obliged to have insurance to cover against the cost of injury compensation claims and you could be entitled to compensation if you have had an injury at work in the last 3 years. Here at Nationwide Injury Lawyers we specialize in compensation for accidents at work. An accident at work could leave you with more than just crippling debt, it can also leave you with long term injuries and we want to make sure that you get the justice you deserve.
What is a work injury?
A work injury is one that, legally, has happened within a place of work during work hours. Any injuries that occur outside of the premises or after hours may not be considered. The term ‘work injury’ covers any form of injury that occurs in the workplace, such as:
- Back Injuries
- Lifting Injuries
- Trips & Falls
- Unsafe Environments
- Construction Injuries
- Factory Injuries
- Office Injuries
- Repetitive Strain injuries
- Respiratory Diseases
- Hearing Loss
- Industrial Injuries
You can also make a work injury claim if you’re hurt because of defective equipment or improper or inadequate training. If you have not received any training, or have not signed any documents to say that you have received training, then you may be entitled to compensation. Remember that it’s advisable to report the accident to your supervisor or manager on the day of the accident and do also make sure it is noted in the company accident book. If you do not report your injury in the first instance it may affect your claim later down the line.
