As an employee, you are entitled to earn a living in a healthy, safe environment where your employer takes all necessary precautions to minimise the risk of accidents.
If you are unlucky enough to have a Burry Port accident at work that causes damage to your physical, emotional and/or financial health, and you believe the accident happened as a result of your employer’s negligence, you may have no other choice but to protect your legal rights and think of the future.
How to deal with your Burry Port accident at work
The first thing you must do if an accident happens in your workplace is report it to your health and safety representative or line manager. It is their responsibility to note down the details of your accident in your employer’s official accident book.
If the accident is very serious, your first priority should be to seek immediate medical treatment, but you should try to put pen to paper as soon as you can so that you can provide your employer with the details of your accident.
As soon as you are feeling well enough to discuss your accident, it is a wise idea to seek advice from the personal injury team here at Accident Advice Helpline. If you wish to make a Burry Port accident at work claim, you will need to deal with your employer’s insurance company rather than your employer himself, and as you may already know, insurance companies can be difficult to deal with.
Without the advice and guidance of our specialist accident solicitors, you will probably find it challenging to gather all the evidence you require to successfully prove your claim.
If you were a part-time worker, contractor or agency worker at the time of your accident, you should still be able to make a claim against your employer. You have an entitlement to work in a safe environment and if your employer has failed to protect you from harm, their insurance company may be liable to pay you compensation for your Burry Port accident at work.
