Wooden blocks, spelling out the word "Claims"; our No Win No Fee solicitors can assist you with making an accident at work compensation claim on a no win no fee basis.
Our personal injury solicitors are asked this question a lot; this and, how much is my personal injury claim worth? As we are asked, Mark Gregory, one of the directors at MG Legal, and a well renowned no win no fee solicitor, decided to draft a blog on the matter. 
Most of us work for a living, so accidents happen at work more often than you’d think. If the accident was not your fault, and caused you to be injured, it's important to gather certain information from your employer to support any potential claims, or for your records. Here's our no win no fee solicitor’s guide to the key information we obtain to ensure your accident at work claim is successful: 

Accident Report 

We will always request a copy of the accident report filled in by your employer, after the accident in question. If no report was filed, we sometimes ask our clients to create a written account of the incident and ask your employer to acknowledge it. 

Employer's Insurance Details 

Employers must register their insurance details on an online portal, called ELTO. Our no win no fee solicitors pay a fee to access the ELTO system, enabling us to obtain information about your employer's liability insurance. This is important for any claims you might make for compensation. 

Witness Details 

If any coworkers or others witnessed the accident, get their names and contact information. Their testimony could be crucial, and we may need to write out to them if liability for your accident is denied by your employer. 

Safety Policies and Training Records 

We ask for copies of any relevant safety policies, procedures, and training materials provided to you, especially if you believe these were inadequate. 

Photographs or CCTV Footage 

If there are any photographs or CCTV footage of the accident or the location where it occurred, we request access to these- a picture as they say, paints a thousand words.

Incident History 

When we contact your employer, we enquire about any previous similar incidents or accidents at your workplace. This can establish a pattern of negligence if it exists. 

Risk Assessments and Inspection Reports 

We always ask for copies of any risk assessments or safety inspections that were carried out prior to your accident, particularly those relating to your work area. 

Details of Your Employment 

Often we ask you to clarify your job role. Ensure you have a clear record of your job description, the terms of your employment, and any relevant communication with your employer. If you were doing something that you were not trained to do, we need to know. 


When you are injured at work, and instruct our no win no fee solicitors to represent you, we ask you to keep a record of all communications with your employer regarding the accident and your injury, including emails and notes from meetings or conversations. 

Medical Assistance Offered 

If medical assistance was, or even wasn’t offered after your accident, we need to know. Document any medical assistance or advice provided by your employer following the accident, as this can strengthen your claim, and help us win your accident at work claim.
