Have you suffered an accident in Cheltenham whilst you were at work?
Every year, numerous employees sustain injuries whilst at work. Whilst many people may only experience minor injuries, a significant number of people can suffer serious or life-changing injuries. When an accident in Cheltenham occurs at work, it’s important that you take it seriously. In addition to reporting it to your line manager, you may also want to make a claim for compensation.
If an accident in Cheltenham has occurred and you want to make a claim for compensation, you will need to show that you weren’t at fault. If your managers have failed to respond to safety concerns or if your working environment was unsafe, they could be held responsible for any accidents or injuries which occur.
Of course, many employees don’t have just one place of work. If your job involves travelling, or if you work from a number of different sites, you could still be eligible to make a compensation claim, providing you can show that your employers were responsible for your accident in Cheltenham.
If, for example, your job involves physical work and your employers failed to provide you with the appropriate safety equipment, you could make a compensation claim against them, if their conduct resulted in you suffering an injury.
Could I lose my job if I make a claim for an accident in Cheltenham?
When people are hurt at work, they sometimes worry that they will be penalised if they make a compensation claim. In actual fact, you have a legal right to make a claim and your employer won’t be able to take action against you.
