If you are unfortunate enough to be involved in an accident at work, which was not your fault and you suffer from a workplace injury, you may be able to make a personal injury claim for compensation. As with all accident compensation claims, you would need to prove that your injury, illness or disease was caused as a result of the negligence of another party (in this case your employer) and once you appoint a personal injury solicitor, they will assist you in compiling your evidence and presenting it to the third party insurers.
