Some people feel that claiming for compensation against your employers is wrong and doing so is cheeky. This is not always the case. Thousands of people each year are injured and sometimes killed at work, so if you think you have a case for work accident compensation, claiming should not be seen as cheeky.
Accidents at work – how they can affect you
Depending on the nature of your employment, injuries at work can be severe. Sprains, strains, broken bones, and even death can occur. Even a slip, trip or fall can have serious consequences.
Should you suffer a work place injury it may not be just your health that will suffer. You may have to take time off work to recover, meaning you’ll incur a loss of earnings through no fault of your own.
Potential results of an accident when you are at work:
- Severe injury
- Expensive medical bills
- Loss of earnings
Because of these dangers, most workplaces will have no end of rules and regulations to keep workers safe from injury. Occasionally, though, things can go wrong, leading to accidents and injury in the workplace.Open Claim Calculator
