The job of an aeroplane pilot entails high risks, including the risk of serious injury or death in a plane crash. In the UK, however, an employer is responsible for the health and safety of all his employees, regardless of whether they must perform low or high-risk activities. As part of his responsibilities, an employer must adhere to certain health and safety regulations, provide sufficient training, offer personal protective equipment, and ensure that machinery and equipment are safe to use. Moreover, he is obliged to hold insurance so that his employees can be recompensed in the event of a tragedy. If you feel that your employer has not met his obligations, and this has led to your accident, you should stop wondering whether you can claim for an accident as an aeroplane pilot and make a work accident claim with us, at Accident Advice Helpline.
Reasons to claim compensation
Suffering injuries because of a work-related accident can be very expensive. Covering huge medical bills and necessities after taking time off work is not easy. This is one of the reasons why you should claim compensation for your injuries. Additionally, making your employer pay for his negligence may determine him to be more careful in the future. Thus, by simply filing a claim for compensation, you will not only receive money to cover your necessities, but also help to prevent future work-related accidents from happening.
Can I claim for an accident as an aeroplane pilot?
If you have been injured whilst doing your job, it is your right to seek redress. But, in order to have a valid claim, one major factor that must be present in your claim is negligence on the part of your employer. This means that you have to demonstrate that your employer, or another employee, was acting carelessly when you were injured. Regardless of whether negligence is on a personal or professional level, it entitles you to compensation only if it was part of your work accident.
Another critical element is your medical report. In order to increase your chances of getting a high compensation award, it is essential to have a detailed medical report, which specifies all of your injuries, symptoms, both short-term and long-term effects, and prognosis. This, together with any piece of evidence that can help us prove that the accident was not your fault, is very important.
