You may have escaped injury in the workplace for a long time, but the chances are that if you’re reading this, it’s because you’ve had an accident at work and you’re looking for an accident lawyer in East Hampshire because you want to make a claim.
Accident Advice Helpline has a whole team of ‘no win, no fee’ solicitors who are always happy to help people claim compensation. Provided you qualify to claim, and you win your case, you could receive a payout that will reimburse you for all the expenses you’ve incurred because of your accident – and help you get things back to normal as you recover.
Accidents in the workplace
Workplace accidents cause a lot of disruption. Last financial year, about 629,000 workers were involved in an accident in their workplace. Of this number, 203,000 had to take more than three days off – and two thirds of these people were absent from work for more than seven days.
Your employer has a duty to ensure that your working environment is safe, so if you have had a workplace accident that caused you to get injured, you could be eligible to claim against your employer.
Some people worry about claiming, because they fear that they might be fired, or at least treated unfavourably when (or if) they return to work after they’ve recovered from their injuries. But they shouldn’t be scared about this happening, because:
- Payouts come from the employer’s insurer (all employers should have employers’ liability insurance), not the company profits
- It would be against the law for an employer to treat the employee in such a way
