As a member of Accord, you have access to legal advice including personal injury claims, will writing and general legal services. The providers of these services vary based on your location in the UK.
If you're unfortunate enough to be injured in an accident, legal experts on our personal injury claim line can help. They can advise on any type of injury and will ensure you receive 100% of any compensation you're awarded - other no-win-no-fee solicitors will take as much as 25% from your award as their fee.
You can use this service for accidents or injury that take place in public places, and in your workplace. If you've had an accident at work, there's more we think you should know so carry on reading.
If you have an accident at work, you must make sure you take steps to report the accident:
Your employer has two main responsibilities when it comes to preventing accidents in the workplace:
It is an employer’s duty to conduct risk assessments, offer appropriate health and safety training, conduct emergency planning and provide adequate first aid. We ask our union representatives to get involved in risk assessments to help ensure hazards are identified and addresses.
All workers are also responsibility for health and safety at work and must make sure they work safely and do not put themselves or others at risk.
