If so, you may be entitled to claim for compensation. With any accident at work, it should have been recorded in the accident book. Write down carefully every detail of exactly what happened. This will help us with your claim once you contact us.
Keep hold of any relevant paperwork, including a copy of the accident report, the names, addresses and phone numbers of any witnesses and details of any expenses relating to your claim. For example, if you have to take leave from work because of your injuries and lose wages as a result, or if you have to pay for any prescription charges.
It is important to contact us to make your claim as early as possible. We may be able to help with your rehabilitation, such as physiotherapy, through the rehabilitation code. You may also be entitled to state benefits.
