If you are wondering: I was injured at work, do I get paid? It will depend on what your company’s policy is. Some employees will be paid full pay while others may get half pay or no pay at all. Even those companies who do pay their employees for time off work while sick or injured, it is often limited to a certain number of days.
How do I find out what my sickness pay and rights are?
You can find out from your employer, via your manager or HR department what the sickness policy states about sick pay. Or you can call an advisor at Accident Advice Helpline to hear more about your rights following an injury at work. If your accident happened in the last three years at your work and you needed to see a doctor, you could be entitled to compensation.
Accident Advice Helpline will fight for a suitable amount of compensation on your behalf, in line with what your company offers for sick pay so you needn’t worry about the small and complicated details. What’s more, if we take on your case we will operate on a no-win, no-fee* basis so you don’t have to worry about costly upfront solicitors’ fees which can put victims off from making a claim.
Injured at work, do I get paid? If I do, can I still claim?
If your employer does pay you for the time off from work while you are recovering from your injury this does not exempt you from claiming compensation. If the accident which resulted in your injuries was not your fault then why should you be left suffering? Compensation can be granted for the emotional and physical pain you may have experienced and it may help towards other costs such as transport (if you were unable to drive or cycle etc. after your injury) and it can also contribute towards rehabilitation or other medical costs.
