Why you should consider claiming compensation
You spend a third or more of your day at work, and it is rare that any major accidents happen. That’s as it should be, because your employer has a legal duty to ensure your safety in the workplace.
Why some people are unsure about claiming through solicitors in Lutterworth
Many people feel that, if they claim against their employer, they might be sacked or treated badly upon their return to work.
Please be reassured that, if this were to happen, it would be illegal. It would not be worth your employer’s while to do anything like that, because they could face legal action.
In any case, the funds that make up your compensation will be paid out by your workplace’s employer liability insurance, not your employer itself.

It’s best to act quickly
For workplace accident claims, there is a three-year limit from the date of your accident to make a claim. This is extended if you are claiming for an industrial disease such as vibration white finger, though – as well as for cases in which the claimant was a minor at the time of the accident.
