Accidents At Work and Injury Compensation explained
An accident of any nature can be a stressful and upsetting experience, so what can you expect if you suffer one in the workplace? Depending on the situation, the circumstances may leave you feeling vulnerable or reluctant to take action. But never allow yourself to feel threatened or unable to speak out. Regardless of the nature of your injury or the circumstances surrounding it, you have the right to make a no win, no fee claim if the accident wasn’t your fault. Accidents at work and injury compensation claims needn’t be stressful if you use Accident Advice Helpline to work for you.
What qualifies as an injury?
An accident in the workplace commonly occurs as a result of a faulty product or piece of equipment due to company negligence. This can include anything from an inconvenient trip or fall to a major injury that may involve long periods of recovery. If you’ve been the victim of an unsafe environment or a defective piece of machinery which resulted in you having to seek medical assistance, don’t hesitate to make an injury claim! You can also claim for stress at work if it’s caused by your employer or environment.
Making a claim
So what kind of procedure follows a work-related accident? Normally, your employer will proceed to look immediately into how and why the accident occurred, gathering as much evidence as possible to ensure your claim can be made easily.
