After an accident at work there are many reasons that people avoid making claims in South Ayrshire, including the fear of being fired as well as simply not feeling that they have the time or energy. However, making a compensation claim after a serious accident at work can be a good thing for many reasons, not least financial ones. Here are some of the reasons that you might decide to make a compensation claim against your company after an accident at work takes you out of action for a time.
Your employer will have to change their practices
Clearly the current health and safety regulations in your workplace are not working in the way that they should, as this is how an accident has been allowed to happen in the first place. If you did not make an accident claim against your employer, they may be tempted to put off making any changes, or never make any changes at all, further putting other employees at risk. If you make a compensation claim right away then your employer is more likely to make changes to the business right away.
You can take off all the time that you need
It isn’t easy taking a lot of time off work when your sick pay is likely to be less than your regular wages and you have other expenses such as medical bills to pay out on. Making a compensation claim provides you with the money that you need to take off all of the time that you want to, allowing you to focus on your recovery as much as you can and ensure that you get better sooner rather than later.
