    Have you been involved in a workplace accident that was not your fault? If so, you will rightly be thinking about using the services of accident lawyers in North East Lincolnshire. However, you probably have a million different questions running through your mind. After all, it is unlikely that you will have found yourself in this type of situation before. Keeping that in mind, read on to discover some of the most frequently asked questions regarding using the services of accident lawyers in North East Lincolnshire to make a claim for an incident that occurred in the workplace.

    FAQ about workplace injury claims

    Will my employer fire me if I make a claim against them? This is the biggest concern for a lot of people. They worry that they will anger their employer and that this could cause repercussions. However, this is something you should not worry about. All employers have a duty by law to provide a healthy and safe working environment. If they fail to do this, they will recognise that they need to compensate you and they will have insurance in place to cover the costs. Furthermore, if they were to lose their cool and sack you, it would only lead to further issues because you would then have grounds for unfair dismissal.

    How long do I have to make a claim? You have three years from the date of the incident to make a claim with accident lawyers in North East Lincolnshire. This is the time limit for all personal injury cases. However, when it comes to workplace incidents, injuries tend to occur over time. In fact, you could find yourself making a claim against an employer you worked for years and years ago. This is usually the case when it comes to the likes of industrial deafness and industrial diseases. Thus, in such instances you will have three years from the date of your diagnosis instead.

    Will I need to go to court? You will be pleased to know that most cases are solved without a trial, in fact more than 97 per cent of personal injury claims are resolved before going to court.

    Do I need to tell my employer about the claim? Yes. It is important to inform them of what has occurred. All employers are required to have an accident book by law and they will need to record the incident in here.
