    Accidents at work in Rochdale

    In order to make an injury compensation claim against your employer, using the solicitors at Accident Advice Helpline, you need to have had an accident at work in Rochdale that wasn’t your fault, sometime within the last 3 years, and suffered an injury in which you needed medical treatment.

    You may feel that you cannot make an injury compensation claim for an accident at work in Rochdale against your employer as you feel guilty. But you should not worry, it will not effect their business in any way, and they should not have to pay out any of their own money.

    Your friends at work will still have a job, as the company should not have to go bankrupt because all employers should have employers liability insurance, and this is what is used to settle any work related injury compensation claims.

    There are some exceptions to that rule regarding employers liability insurance.

    Government departments and agencies such as the police and emergency services, health trusts or any companies that are funded by public money will not have to have this insurance. There are also a few exceptions for some private companies, but many still purchase the cover, even though they are not required by law to do so.

    Filing an accident at work in Rochdale compensation claim

    There is no excuse for not making an injury compensation claim against your employers because you have had an accident at work. In fact some bosses may actually encourage you to do so. Some employers feel that they have paid their insurance premiums for many years and never made a claim. They also may want the best for their staff members, maybe making an injury claim could help them with any financial problems that they have.

    However, they will always be some bosses who are not happy with your decision to make an injury claim. Although your boss is not allowed to treat you any differently after you have made your claim, they should treat you the same as every other staff member. If they do not then after you have finished your injury claim, you should then take them to an employment tribunial.

    Making your claim as soon as possible after the accident seems the sensible thing to do.

There are usually costs such as extra medical expenses, travelling costs etc that may be just small amounts on their own, but over a period of time they can amount to a lot of money, and if you are on a reduced income because of being off work, they could seriously hinder your financial situation.
