Need to make a claim against an employer in Pencoed? If you have had an accident at work then you should make a complaint to your employer so that they are able to investigate what happened, and work out if there is anything that they can do to stop the same accident happening again.
If your accident was very serious then you may also want to make a claim against your employer in Pencoed, if you feel that the accident was actually their fault. However, if you like your job and would like to return to it when you are fully recovered, you may be nervous about doing this.
Here are some ways that you can claim compensation and still return to your job later.
Report the accident
The first thing you should do before you make a claim is to report the accident to your employer. If you do this as soon as the accident has occurred then it will be more difficult for them to deny that the accident happened later on. A report of the accident will also prove to your employer that you are not exaggerating your accident or making it up for compensation.
Claim against your employer in Pencoed
Let your employer know as soon as possible that you are looking into claiming compensation, and your reasons for doing this. Although your employer is not able to fire you for making a compensation claim, it is not going to help your relationship at all if the first they hear of the claim is when a solicitor’s letter lands on their desk. If you give them the respect of letting them know what you are doing, they should respect you back.
Don’t mention the claim against an employer in Pencoed in the office
Whilst the claim is being processed, don’t gossip about it with your coworkers or talk to your employer about it. This allows both you and your employer to separate the claim from your work as an employee.
Making your claim
Once you have decided that you do want to push forward with claim against an employer in Pencoed then you need to do so as quickly as possible. You have up to three years to make your compensation claim after the accident has occurred, but it is always best to make the claim sooner rather than later, whilst the evidence is still fresh.
