    Claim against an employer in West Lothian


    Personal Injury Solicitors in West Lothian

    If you have been injured in an accident at work, which was not your fault, you may not know whether or not it is a good idea for you to make a claim against an employer in West Lothian. If you are entitled to compensation from your employer, due to their negligence causing your accident and injuries, then you should be able to make a successful claim through an experienced injury lawyer.

    However, what puts people off is the fact that their employer is unlikely to be happy with the situation if they do make a claim, and they fear that this could put their job in jeopardy. Here are some reasons you should still make a claim.

    Your employer cannot fire you if you claim against an employer in West Lothian

    As long as you have a valid claim for compensation, and have been injured as the result of your employer’s negligence, there is absolutely no reason for your employer to fire you because you have made a compensation claim against them. You can discuss the possibility of making a claim with a solicitor first to be sure that you have a good case for compensation, but you could sue your employer for unfair dismissal if they try to let you go because you have claimed compensation for your accident.

    The money will subsidise your sick pay

    If you have to be off work for a long time thanks to your injury, you will probably be getting sick pay or benefits to keep you afloat. Sadly this money is rarely as much as you would earn in your job, and this can mean that it becomes a struggle to stay afloat, particularly if your expenses have gone up due to your injury. Compensation can help you to stay comfortable financially during this time.
