Claiming after an accident at work in Carmarthen can seem like a daunting task. You may be worried that you’ll lose your job or that the stress of it all will be too much for you.
If you feel like this, you can rest assured that you’re not alone. The claims process is intimidating for most people, whether they’re claiming after an accident at work, on the roads or in a public place. Many people choose Accident Advice Helpline when they’re looking for a personal injury specialist with an excellent reputation. At Accident Advice Helpline, we are driven towards helping injury victims to win compensation following accidents that weren’t their fault.
You WON’T lose your job
If you’ve been putting off making a claim against your employer because you’re worried you’ll lose your job, you’ll be pleased to hear that your concerns are unfounded. Remember, your employer has a duty of care towards you and if they fail in their duty, you have every right to file a claim against them. It is actually against employment law for your employer to sack you simply because you’ve made a claim against the company. Therefore, if your employer does decide to terminate your employment, you could then make another claim for unfair dismissal.
Your employer should have insurance in place
All companies in the UK should have insurance in place to cover the cost of any compensation claims made against them. Therefore, it is the insurance firm who will pay you the compensation, rather than your employer directly. So you can relax in the knowledge that making a claim against the company you work for won’t leave it out of pocket or have a detrimental effect on your workplace, your colleagues or yourself.
