Accident solicitor in Vale of Glamorgan

Accidents at work can happen at any time. Whether you work at a factory, office, warehouse, shop or construction site in the Vale of Glamorgan, accidents can arise due to slip, trips, falls and fire breakouts, to name just a few. The causes of workplace accidents are endless, but if you have suffered an accident that could have been prevented then you will be legally entitled to make a compensation claim.

The prospect of making a claim against your employer may seem daunting, particularly if you intend to continue working for them. There are many myths surrounding the process of making a claim. Here are some of the misconceptions we have heard in recent years.

Myth #1: My employer will sack me for making an accident at work claim

It is illegal for your employer to dismiss you for making a compensation claim. If they try to do so, you could make a claim against them for unfair dismissal.

Myth #2: I cannot claim compensation if I was partly to blame for the accident

If you tripped, slipped or fell in your workplace, it is likely that you will be able to file an accident claim. Your employer is responsible for your health and safety, and must take reasonable steps to ensure that you remain safe from harm.

Myth #3: The small business I work for would not be able to afford the cost of my compensation settlement

Businesses must purchase employers’ liability insurance, which enables them to meet the cost of compensation claims. Only a small number of businesses are exempt from this requirement.

Myth #4: I would have to jump through several hoops to make a claim

If you believe you may have a valid claim, you should:

  • Record the accident in your employer’s accident book;
  • Retain any documentation relating to your accident, for example receipts for financial losses; and
  • Report the accident to the Health and Safety Executive if you suffered serious injuries.

Myth #5: I can fight a compensation claim without the help of an accident solicitor in Vale of Glamorgan
