Can I make a compensation claim for an injury sustained in an accident at work in Wigan?
You can make a claim for an accident at work, provided you were in no way at fault, and can prove there was negligence displayed by your employer that lead to the accident. Furthermore, the accident in question must have taken place within the past three years.
There is plenty of legislation in place to protect employees, and ensure that they are safe and healthy in their place of work. If your employer has failed to comply and you’ve been left nursing an injury as a result, take action, and make a claim.
How can I prove my employer was to blame?
If for example, you were at work in a commercial kitchen and slipped on a wet floor and suffered a head injury, you can claim compensation if you have proof that your employer knew of the wet floor, and yet neglected to clean it up correctly. You should be able to provide your solicitor with things like photographic evidence, copies of workplace accident reports and witness statements to strengthen your case.
Do I have to face my employer in court?
It can often be the case that employers would rather reach an out-of-court settlement than go to trial, so you may not need to attend a hearing to receive a compensation payout. We know that it can seem a daunting prospect to take on your employer, but it’s important to remember that you are acting within your legal rights if you’ve been injured, and that you deserve to be compensated.
