When you are at work, the last thing you would expect is to be the victim of an injury caused by an accident that was not your fault.
You understandably assume that your employers would go to whatever lengths are necessary to ensure the health and safety of their employees. For the most part this is true, but when an employer does not take the necessary precautions, resulting in injury to their staff, then something must be done.
Accident Advice Helpline are here when you are claiming after an accident at work in North Warwickshire. We understand that the issue can feel personal and sensitive, and generate fears about your working life. We will work with you to ensure all issues are resolved smoothly, and you receive the compensation you deserve.
Your job will not be at risk
It is easy to be concerned that bringing a compensation claim against your employers would put your job at risk, but this is not true.
If you are injured due to your employers not taking enough care in ensuring your safety, you may choose not to return to work. If you choose to leave your job, and focus on making a full recovery before finding another job, you should be able to do this. The compensation you receive will help you maintain financial stability during your time off.
If you do choose to return to work, you cannot be fired for making a claim. The claim you make is against your employers due to them not doing their job properly. You are not at fault for your injuries and you cannot be held accountable for claiming after an accident at work in North Warwickshire for the compensation you deserve.
We understand the issue is sensitive
It is a strange experience to have to claim compensation from the people you work for. They employ you, they pay you for the work you do, and in return you do the best job you can. It is a simple relationship and changing it can seem odd.
But the fact is, you are not the one who changed the relationship. As soon as the carelessness of somebody else caused you to suffer a serious injury, any respect that existed was diminished.
If your employers cannot even show you the courtesy of keeping you safe while you are working for them, then they have no right to expect you to not claim for the compensation you are entitled to for their benefit.
