Can I make a claim?
If you have been injured in an accident in a public place, at work or in your home, and it was not entirely your fault, you may be entitled to make an accident compensation claim. Accident claims originate from a range of scenarios, such as a slip, trip or fall, a workplace hazard, or a road traffic accident.
Can I claim if my accident was at work?
Every employer has a duty of care over their employees and is legally obliged to do their utmost to prevent injuries or accidents in the workplace. An accident in the workplace can occur through lack of training, faulty equipment or the failure of an employer to provide protective equipment and clothing. If your employer has failed in their duty to maintain a safe working environment, and that has led to you being injured, you could successfully make a compensation claim.
Can I claim if my accident was in a public place?
If you are injured in a public place that was not entirely your fault, then you could be entitled to compensation. Whether your injury was sustained in the street, a hospital, a school or an amusement park, the businesses and public bodies in charge of these spaces have a duty of care to minimise the risk of accidents. If a business or body has failed in this duty to keep you safe and this led to you being injured, you could successfully make a compensation claim.
Can I claim if my accident was at home?
Accidents in the home are extremely common. It is also common for people injured in household accidents to assume that they are not entitled to make a claim for financial compensation. Even when an injury has been sustained in the home, it can still be caused by someone else’s fault or negligence. If you have been injured by faulty electrical equipment or furniture, or as a result of substandard work carried out in your home, then this injury was sustained through no fault of your own. If your home is rented from a council or private landlord, and a lack of proper maintenance or any other defect with the property has led to you being injured, you may be able to successfully make a compensation claim.
