Claiming after an accident at work in Broxtowe
All employers must undertake certain obligations about the safety of their workforce. They are required by law to take all reasonable measures to secure a safe environment for people to work on. If they fail to do this, and an accident happens as a result, there is a good chance they will have to pay compensation as a result. This compensation will be paid out of their employer’s liability insurance policy. As such, when you make a claim, you will not be claiming directly against your employer but against their insurance firm.
About your rights
Even so, many people are worried about claiming against their workplace. We naturally want to keep a good relationship with our employers if possible, and claiming compensation against them would seem to be a perfect way to ruin everything. However, if you claim compensation your employer is forbidden from taking punitive action against you. If they do, they will probably face a number of further legal measures. As long as you understand your rights and the ways in which you are protected you should never have to be concerned about making a claim.
Other people are worried by how much a compensation claim might cost. Legal fees can certainly be expensive, but if you work on the basis of no win no fee, you will not have to pay legal fees unless you win your case. It’s a great way of making certain you’re protected at every stage of the process. Although there may still be some costs which are not included in the no win no fee deal, this removes the biggest financial barrier preventing people from making claims. It’s a great way to reduce the risks and ensure your rights are protected at every stage.
At Accident Advice Helpline we have all the expertise you need to claim after an injury in the workplace. We’ll build the most compelling case possible which will improve your chances of success.
