- Slips, trips and falls
- Insufficient training

How much compensation could I receive?
The amount of compensation that you may receive is dependent on a number of factors including:
- The extent of your illness or injuries.
- Lost and future loss of earnings.
- Medical costs including prescription charges
- Travel costs to and from medical appointments.
Is there a time limit for making a claim?
There is a limitation period of up to three years from the date of the accident.
What evidence do I need to support my work accident claim?
In order to prove that your accident or illness was caused due to the negligent actions of your employer, your solicitor will use the following evidence to build a case:
- Photographs of your injuries.
- Photos of the scene, for example, the wet floor or faulty machinery.
- Witness statements.
- The details in the company accident book.

Can I make a claim if the accident was my fault?
If we can show that blame for the accident is shared between yourself and your employer you can still make a claim. In these sorts of cases, liability is split. For example, if the claim is worth £20,000, a split liability of 50/50 would mean that the claimant would be awarded £10,000 in compensation.
