An accident can occur anywhere; we are all aware of this and we use the necessary caution to ensure that we do not cause an accident that results in injury to us or others.
As much as you may know that such incidents do happen, the last place you expect them to happen is at work. You have given your employers a lot. In return for the faith they showed in you by initially employing you, you work your absolute hardest and do the best job you can at all times.
For loyal and trusted employees such as yourself, all you ask for in return is that your health and safety while you are at work is treated with the utmost care and is a priority to your bosses.
Unfortunately, this is not always the case and accidents at work do happen. If you are injured in such an accident, it can be difficult to know what to do next.
Claiming after an accident at work in Pembrokeshire
It is natural to be hesitant when it comes to making a claim for compensation against those who employ you, especially if you consider them friends.
But risking someone’s safety by not putting necessary attention into the maintenance of your premises is not how employees or friends should be treated. You have been let down by those you have put trust in, and they should be brought to account for the mistakes they made that led to you being injured.
If you make a claim, it will send a message to those responsible that such mistakes will not go unpunished and you can ensure that they take more care in future. This will make sure that you and your co-workers are not at risk of further injury while you are at work.
You deserve to be compensated
You should be able to put your trust in those that employ you. If they betray this trust, you need closure and reassurance, not to mention the financial stability that is vital to the healing process.
The injuries you sustain as a result of an accident at work can be severe and affect many aspects of your day to day life. If you were put in this position by a stranger, you would not hesitate to claim for compensation. If it is those that employ you that have caused you such damage, the logic should not change. If anything you should be able to have more faith in those you know to keep you out of harm’s way at all times.
