    "If you've been injured through no fault of your own you could be entitled to compensation. If you're unsure if you could claim, I recommend you call Accident Advice Helpline."

    If you make a claim, will you get fired from your job?


    If you’ve had an accident at work and you make a claim, you may be worried about losing your job. However, everyone has a right to claim work accident compensation in circumstances where injuries are sustained as a result of negligence on behalf of an employer. If you’ve been injured at work and you wish to make a claim, Accident Advice Helpline can help to eliminate any stress from the process.

    If you make a claim, will you get fired?

    You should not worry that you may get fired if you make a claim; the reality is that making a claim should not result in you losing your job. Employers are not allowed to cease an employment contract purely because an employee makes a compensation claim.

    If you are planning to make a work injury claim, it is a good idea to be honest with your employer. You should notify them of the accident so that it can be recorded, and provide details of your injuries. It is also advisable to let them know that you intend to make a claim following your accident. If you make a claim and you feel that your employer is treating you unfairly as a result, you should seek legal advice.

    What should I do if I wish to make a claim?

    If you plan to claim compensation for a work-related injury, it is advisable to note down all the relevant details, report the accident and seek medical advice so that your injuries can be assessed. If the incident happened within the last three years, Accident Advice Helpline could help you to make a successful no win, no fee claim.

    At Accident Advice Helpline, we employ a team of experienced personal injury lawyers, which works to make the claims process as simple as possible; when you have an accident at work, the last thing you need is added hassle related to battling through legal jargon and attending court proceedings. The compensation you are awarded could help to cover lost earnings and ease any financial pressures related to taking time off work.
