Accidents happen in workplaces everyday, but many of them could have been avoided if the employers had taken more care in relation to health and safety. Some employers will try to cut corners in these matters and if you are injured because of their negligence, you may be entitled to make an accident at work claim in Brecon, or wherever it is in the UK you are located.
The advantages of making an accident at work claim in Brecon
If you have been injured at work sometime in the last three years, and your injuries needed medical attention, you may be considering making an accident at work claim in Brecon.
Accidents tend to bring extra expenses with them, and often a loss of income when time is taken off work to recover. When you make an accident at work claim with us, we will ensure that you are awarded the maximum amount for your circumstances.
But there is more to make an accident at work claim in Brecon that just the financial compensation. A claim can help you to put the incident behind you so that you can get on with your life. It also often means that the responsible person takes more care in the future, so your claim could save others from experiencing the same fate as you.
Getting your claim started
Many victims are put off making an accident at work claim because they are concerned about their job, and the jobs of others if the settlement is large. It is illegal for an employer to treat you any differently just because you have made a claim against them, and if they should fire you they could have to face an employment tribunal as well.
The size of the award will not affect the business at all. They have to purchase employers liability insurance every year, and have a certificate to prove they have done so. It will be this insurance that settles your claim. The fines and penalties for not having this insurance are horrendous, and it is not worth employers being without it as it could cost them far more than a policy.
So the last reason that victim shy away from claiming compensation is because they are concerned about the costs involved.
