If you have had an accident at work which you feel was the fault of your employer or another employee, it is up to you whether you want to make an accident at work claim in Aberdeenshire or not.
You may decide that it is not worth making an accident at work claim in Aberdeenshire because you’re worried it will affect your standing in the company. However, if you aren’t able to work for a long time because of your injury, making a claim may be the only way to keep yourself afloat financially.
- Do you have a good case? There is no point in making an accident claim if there is a very slim chance of you winning your case. Think about the circumstances surrounding your injury and decide whether the accident was truly the fault of your employer, or if you take some of the blame yourself.
- Do you want to continue working there? If you want to stay in your job you should understand that although your employer cannot fire you for making a claim, life may not be too comfortable in your job for a little while afterwards. If you love your job and are happy to continue working there, it may not be worth it.
- Can you handle the stress? Making a claim can take a long time and be very stressful in the interim period so ensure that you are feeling strong enough to make a claim, and that you think that you can handle the stress for the time being.
- Can you find a lawyer? You should only try to process a claim through a professional, or you have very little chance of being successful. See if you can find a good lawyer to work with before you make a start on your claim.
