In spite of best efforts made by many employers to provide safe and conducive work environment, accidents do occur, no matter your profession and these can result in injuries. You should consider putting in a claim for compensation even when your employer has complied with the core responsibilities specified by the Health and Safety Executive (HSE). The compensation returns you to the position you were in before you sustained the injury arising from the accident.
How soon after the accident should you consider putting in your claim? It is advisable to start your claim as soon as you become aware of the injury because it is easier to prove that the injury sustained is attributable to the accident.
