If you have been injured in an accident at work in Wandsworth, it’s important to assess your options. If you have been injured in an accident that has left you unable to work, then you may find yourself out of pocket. And if you have been severely injured, then you could find yourself unable to work for the foreseeable future.
None of these scenarios are pleasant. In fact, they are downright unfair. After all, it was not your fault that you were injured. And you should not have to pay for your employer’s mistakes. The fact is this – all employers have a legal duty to report accidents, injuries, diseases and dangerous occurrences to their health and safety enforcement authority. In addition, they have a duty of care for all employees. And so if your employer failed in their responsibilities, then it’s only right that you get financial compensation for the same.
Also, if you are hesitant about making a claim because you feel that your employer may punish you for doing so, you should know that your employer is not allowed to do this and doing so could lead to an employment tribunal. But if you do find that making a claim happens to reduce your hours or otherwise affects you, then you can claim additional special damages for the same – your solicitor will explain this to you if this is the case.
