    Standing up for your work injury rights


    How would you feel about making a claim to seek compensation for injuries you received at work? Would you shy away from doing it, even when you have a good case? Worrying about your work injury rights is understandable, but you should make sure you don’t miss out on compensation because you’re concerned about the potential fallout.

    You can understand how important it is to seek advice regarding your position when you are faced with a situation like this. Many people are concerned about their injuries and what the prospect of recovery is, while simultaneously being worried about their job.

    Should you worry about your work injury rights?

    If you are hurt at work and you suspect your employer (or, in some cases, another worker) was responsible for the accident, you have a right to seek legal counsel to learn more. If there is enough evidence to suggest you may have been injured through negligence, you can consider bringing a case against your employer.

    Such things are rare, but it is important to realise your job is protected in these circumstances. You have a legal right to explore a compensation claim if your employer’s lack of diligence led to your accident. For example, did they neglect to provide proper training for you? Did they fail to give you protective clothing, or neglect to make sure the machinery you were using was fit for purpose? These are just a few examples, and while such things are rare, it’s good to know about them in case they apply to you.
