Accidents at work can bring up lots of difficult dynamics in the workplace, especially if your employer is found liable for the harm and distress you have endured. It can be sometimes difficult to enquire whether your employer intends to cover expenses for any treatment you undergo following your injury, and as such, costs are never quite clear.
That being said, there are ways to avoid living through any animosity. By approaching a law firm, such as Accident Advice Helpline, your claim will be handled professionally. This means no difficult discussions with your employer, enabling you to get back to the peaceful humdrum of your typical working days.
Does compensation cover any treatment you undergo following an injury?
If you have suffered an accident at work through no fault of your own, and you believe your employer is liable for the harm and distress you have endured, Accident Advice Helpline can help you.
Rather than expecting your employer to pay out for any treatment you undergo, by placing a claim for compensation, you can ensure all costs required are covered, including those for any treatment you undergo.
When you claim personal injury compensation for work-related injury or illness, a few factors will be taken into account.
No matter the severity of your accident, two areas will always be taken into account:
- Reimbursement for financial costs and losses, including loss of earnings or costs for any treatment you undergo
- An amount for acute and long-term physical or psychological impact
