How we can help with an Industrial Accident Claim?
Going to work every day, the least you can expect is to be in an environment safe from harm. No matter what type of job you are in, weather that is construction or office work, your employer should guarantee your safety. Not only can an industrial injury cause you physical injuries, but it can also cause you mental trauma.
Our specially trained advisors will be able to discuss the claim with you to help you understand. Call us today on 0121 8276 446.
Why make an Industrial accident claim?
Having an industrial accident could mean that you are unable to work for some time, or even at all. Making a claim for compensation can help ensure that you are not put out of pocket. It can also alert you employees of dangers and hazard which they may need to tend to.
You should not have to suffer due to someone else’s mistake or negligence. If you have been involved in an industrial accident, you may be entitled to compensation.

What are the common causes of Industrial Accidents at work?
When you are at a place of work, it is down to your employer to ensure your surroundings are well maintained. However, some accidents are still unpreventable.
Sometimes, employers are negligent in the maintenance of the workplace and do not follow all the rules they should. By failing to do this, they are putting you at harm.
Some ways in which an industrial accident can occur are:-
- Lack of training.
- Faulty equipment
- Lack of safety gear
- Spillages/hazards/loose items.
Who is responsible for protecting workers against industrial accidents at work?
Ultimately, we will all try our best to stay safe from harm while being at work, although it is the responsibility of the employer to ensure the environment is secure.
Any serious accident that occurs, your employer has a responsibility to ensure it is reported under RIDDOR (Reporting of Injuries, Diseases and Dangerous Occurrences Regulations). Failure to do this can result in them having to pay a hefty fine.
The employer must ensure al the necessary precautions have been taken, and all the correct measures are in place. Having an industrial accident at work due to your employer not correctly following the guidelines or ensuring the place is free from hazards could mean you are entitled to compensation, which your workplace insurance will be liable for.
Do I have to leave my job if I make an industrial accident claim?
Some people believe that making an industrial accident claim can put your job at risk. This is not the case. Your employer cannot sack you, or single you out due to the claim.
Laws have been put into place to protect you once you decide to make a claim, meaning you can still keep your job.
The claim will not be made against your employer directly. It will be made against their insurance, proving they are the ones at fault.

How much industrial accident compensation will I receive?
The amount of compensation you get for an industrial accident claim will depend on many factors. Until the medical evidence has been obtained, the amount you get will not be finalised.
Claiming for compensation can assist not only you in your day-to-day life, but also the people around you, who may need to assist you physically and financially. Further things taken into account include how long you have taken off work, what impact this will have on you long term, and how long your injuries are for.

This maximum deduction will be 25%, it may be less than this, but it will never be more. This will be discussed with you before your case begins.
