Should I make a claim for my fall-related injuries?
Making a claim for compensation may help you with lost earnings if you had to take unpaid time off work because of your injuries. You may have needed to pay for medical costs or treatments and you could be reimbursed if you make a claim. Compensation can also be awarded to victims for the pain and emotional suffering they have had to endure. Don’t be put off making a claim against your employer, by law they should be covered for accidents by their insurance so it shouldn’t affect your job or your colleagues. If you didn’t ask to be injured, why should you suffer?
