Have you had an injury whilst at work? Every year, any accident lawyer in Fylde will receive countless calls from people who wish to make a compensation claim against their employer because they’ve had an accident.
However, there are probably many other people out there who are eligible to claim, yet don’t think about it.
To qualify for compensation, you need to have suffered an injury in an accident that was someone else’s fault. In the case of a workplace injury, to be eligible, the fault will lie with your employer. The reason they might be at fault is because they have failed to provide you with a safe working environment.
You’re not guaranteed to win your case, but an accident lawyer in Fylde could help you to claim personal injury compensation.
Why don’t some people make a claim?
The trouble is, some people are scared to make a claim against their employer. Unfortunately, people worry that they will lose their jobs or be penalised for making a claim but this isn’t true. In fact, your employer can’t take any negative action against you for making a claim.
Providing you weren’t at fault and you obtained medical help for your injuries, you should be able to take action. Of course, most claimants will need to make their claim within 3 years’ of the incident in order to be eligible to obtain compensation.
