Will my employer fire me if I hire accident lawyers in Bargoed to make a claim?
Have you been involved in a workplace accident? Perhaps you were involved in a construction incident? Maybe you have recently been diagnosed with industrial deafness and believe an ex-employer did not provide the right protective equipment? Perhaps you have been diagnosed with repetitive strain injuries and your employer ignored your requests for a break? Whatever your scenario may be, if the incident was not your fault, you should definitely consider making a claim against your employer.
A lot of people worry about doing this, as they fear that their employer will sack them. It is an understandable concern. However, it is not one you should worry about unduly. Employers recognise that it is their legal duty to provide a safe and healthy working environment. If they fail to do so, they know they must compensate the victim, and they will have insurance in place to cover this. If your employer were to fire you, they would only make the situation worse for themselves, as you would then have grounds for unfair dismissal.
The best thing to do is just make sure you handle everything correctly and above board. You will need to inform your employer or your safety representative of the incident. All employers are required to have an accident book and they will need to record the incident in this book. If you do not inform them of the injury then there could be a few hurdles in the way later down the line when it comes to making a claim.
