4 Injury & Negligence HAVE I GOT A CLAIM? Your employer has a legal obligation to maintain certain health and safety standards to minimise the risk of workplace accidents. If your accident was caused because your employer failed to maintain these standards, you may have a claim. WHAT SHOULD I DO AFTER AN ACCIDENT AT WORK? Report the accident to your employer and make sure it goes in the accident book Report the accident to the Health and Safety Representative, if you have one Get the names and addresses of any witnesses Seek medical advice for your injuries WHAT WILL MY SOLICITOR DO? We will initially take a detailed account of your accident and your injuries. If we think you have grounds to make a claim, we will then obtain medical evidence on your behalf to proceed with your claim. Where the employer admits fault, it may be possible to get you an interim payment to help with the cost of treatment.
5 WHAT CAN I RECOVER IF MY CLAIM IS SUCCESSFUL? Compensation is awarded for pain and suffering. The award will reflect the nature and severity of the condition and its effects on your everyday life and activities. We are also able to claim other expenses which you may have incurred, such as:- Loss of income caused by your accident Private treatment costs Loss of pension caused by your accident Cost of medication and/or aids and equipment incurred as a result of your accident Nursing care costs Travelling expenses incurred as a result of your accident WHAT IF I THINK I M PARTLY TO BLAME FOR MY ACCIDENT?

We will work with you to gather the evidence to support your claim. Supporting your case In certain cases we can apply for an interim payment of compensation while the investigation into the overall value of your claim continues. Interim payments can help with rehabilitation and pay for adapted accommodation, equipment, professional care and in some cases pay for private medical treatment or counselling.

Different time limits may apply if it happened abroad. 07
