If you’ve had an accident at work or you suffer from a work-related illness, you may be able to claim compensation.
In recent years, the number of people claiming work accident compensation has increased significantly, as the claims process has become simpler and people are more aware of their rights. Unfortunately, although most claims are made with honest intentions, there are some ‘bad’ claims floating around.
What are bad accident at work claims?
A bad claim refers to a claim, which is not based on honest or accurate information. The person who makes the claim aims to deceive the legal system to earn money, rather than pursuing work accident compensation because they have been injured and this has had a negative impact on their lives. A bad claim relates to an incident, which may not have even happened or a claim, which is based on falsified or exaggerated information.
How do I know if my claim is a good claim?
A good claim is a claim that is valid and based on information, which is accurate. Good claims can be backed up with evidence and additional details from other people, usually witnesses, colleagues and medical professionals.
The details in a good claim add up and present an honest picture of what happened and the circumstances under which an incident at work occurred.
