If you’ve been injured at work, you’ll know that the aftermath of an accident in the workplace can be a stressful time. You’re likely to have lots of things on your mind, and Accident Advice Helpline recently commissioned a survey to find out more about your workplace injury concerns. The results are in, and we think they’re pretty interesting. Almost 47% of people we surveyed said their main concern was recovering from their injuries – and we’d agree that’s the most important thing after you’ve been injured.
45% of people were concerned about how much time they would have to take off work and almost 45% of people were losing sleep over whether or not they would receive pay during their time off.
Are your concerns justified?
There’s a simple way to stop stressing about how you’ll manage financially if you need to take time off work after an accident – make a personal injury claim. You could be compensated not only for your pain and suffering but also for any loss of earnings that has left you short of cash. But what are some other common workplace injury concerns? Just over 19% of people were worried about making a claim for compensation, with almost 25% of those surveyed worried how their employers would react if they made a personal injury claim and 12% stressed about the cost of claiming compensation.
These are all valid concerns, but you could make a claim with Accident Advice Helpline, as our lawyers work on a 100% no win, no fee basis. This way you won’t stress about affording legal fees – and you shouldn’t worry about what your employer will think. Most claims can be processed over the phone, it’s unlikely you’ll have to go to court, and employers have liability insurance designed to pay out in the event of a claim.
