Claiming for an accident at work in Burton on Trent
Research shows that most accident victims return to work after an accident claim with no bad feelings at all. This could be because it is not your employer that usually settles the claim, but their insurers. In fact, some employers are very pro active with assisting you to claim, as they have paid the premiums for this insurance cover, and think you should be compensated.
Your employer will know how much your income will drop if you need time from work. Sick pay is nowhere near as much as a wage, and the financial pressures caused by an accident can soon start to mount up.
Any extra costs you incur because of the accident, and any loss of income, can be recouped as part of a successful claim.
