Do you believe that you need an accident lawyer in Huntingdonshire?
If you have been injured in an accident at work that was caused by the negligence of your employer, you may be considering getting in touch with an accident lawyer in Huntingdonshire to make a compensation claim against them. But many innocent victims are unaware of their legal rights, and do not know they are able to claim against their employer, so here answers to some of the questions an accident lawyer in Huntingdonshire is asked. However, may we point out that you don’t need to ask questions of an accident lawyer in Huntingdonshire. All you need do, is pick up the phone and talk to us at Accident Advice Helpline
Why is my employer liable to pay me compensation if I am injured in an accident at work?
All UK employers have a legal duty to protect the health and safety of their employees while they are at work. If they fail in this duty and you are injured, the accident is deemed to be their fault, because they did not have the health and safety measures in place to prevent it.
Will I lose my job if I make a claim against them?
It is illegal for your employer to treat you, or any witnesses, badly, just because you have made a claim against them. Most employers do not react in this way and the victims return to work with no problem. But for those whose boss does not treat them in a proper manner, there is always the option of taking them to an employment tribunal.
Will my boss be in trouble for allowing the accident to happen?
That depends on the type of accident and the severity of your injuries. What are considered serious accidents have to be reported to the Health and Safety Executive (HSE), and there is always the possibility that they will prosecute your employer.
Employers liability insurance is a legal requirement for most employers, and it would be this that settles your claim, not the business itself.
