Pursuing compensation with accident at work claims in Risca
There are hundreds of accidents at work that could result in innocent victims making accident as work claims in Risca, including:
- Accidents with moving machinery
- Falls from height
- Accidents with vehicles or plant
- Slips on spillages that should have been cleaned up
- Trips on trailing wires
- Stock falling on people
- Items being dropped from height
Slips, trips and falls are the most common of all work place accidents, and are often the reason that innocent victims make accident at work claims in Risca.
Slips, trips and falls may not sound very serious, but they really depend how you land, what you land on and at what height the accident happens. They can have devastating effects on victim’s lives, and the lives of those close to them.
Your employer should do their best to prevent accidents at work of any type, and if you are injured in one because of their negligence, you could be entitled to compensation.
Compensation can help you come to terms with your injury, and pay for any lifestyle changes you need to make because of the accident. There are normally extra expenses to cope with as well, at a time when your income could be reduced because of being off work through no fault of your own. The extra costs and losses can be recouped if your claim for compensation is successful, but you do need to prove them. Keep receipts for everything you have to pay out that is accident related.
The attitude of your employer
Most employers are helpful when it comes to compensation claims, probably because they realise that their negligence was at least partly to blame. They should have employers liability insurance too, so the compensation does not have to come out of company funds.
This is why most employees who have made a claim return to work with no problems, and there are very few that encounter hostility because they claimed against their employer.
