You should be able to get advice on claiming in Oxford against your employer as long as you can prove that an accident that you have had was their fault, due to negligence of some description.
Many people are nervous about making claims against their employer as they feel that it creates a negative atmosphere in the workplace or puts them at risk of being passed over for promotion or even losing their jobs. Be assured that your employer is not allowed to penalise you for making a compensation claim, even if the claim is ultimately not successful.
Here is how to proceed with a compensation claim against your employer.
Make an accident report and obtaining advice on claiming in Oxford
An accident report made on the day of your accident is an excellent form of evidence, and also helps you to remember exactly what happened in your accident later on down the line, when you need to put together a compensation claim.
Once you have filed an accident report, ask for a copy of it there and then that you can keep for your records.
Look through your contract
Make sure that you have gone through your contract with a fine toothed comb to check what your employers promises are to you and what you have promised in return.
This will help you to avoid getting into any legal problems when you do make a claim. If you aren’t sure what your contract is telling you, show it to your injury lawyer.
Speak to your employer
It is going to keep things much lighter and less stressful if you just let your employer know that you are thinking about making a claim against them.
This gives them the opportunity to offer you compensation without having to go to court, and just so the first they know about it isn’t when a letter from a solicitor arrives.
