A lot of people are worried about making an accident at work claim in Wrexham for many reasons. They are concerned about how they may be treated after they have made a claim against their employer and whether or not their employer can fire them. This should not be a worry though as it is illegal for an employer to dismiss or treat an employee any differently after they have made a claim.
Another worry is that people feel it will have an impact on their employee’s finances putting other people’s jobs at risk but again this should not be a concern as all employers are legally supposed to have insurance in place to cover them if an accident happens and the employee makes a claim.
Accidents at work can happen in any line of employment to anyone at any time; they are unpredictable. All workplaces have hazards. An employer has a legal responsibility to its employees to ensure their health and safety while they are at work. They must make sure that all employees undertake health and safety training, check equipment regularly, carry our risk assessments, inform employees of any risks in the workplace and ensure the working environment is a safe one.
If an employer fails to adhere to the health and safety laws and an accident happens to an employee because of the employer’s negligence then the employee is well within their rights to make an accident at work claim in Wrexham for compensation.
It is not until we have an injury is it that we realize just how painful things can be and the impact an injury can have on our day to day lives. Injuries can be expensive for instance you will have prescription charges for medication; you may need help with childcare or jobs in the house. If you cannot work, you may lose earnings.
All this should be given back to you if the accident was not your fault and you should not feel badly in any way for making a claim to get it back. You are the victim and have suffered enough with your injury you should not have to deal with a financial burden as well.
