Have you been injured in a workplace accident within the last three years? Was the accident not your fault? Are you thinking about claiming after an accident at work in Preston?
At Accident Advice Helpline, we have been helping innocent accident victims get justice since the year 2000. Through our years of experience, we have been able to identify certain questions that our clients ask more often than others. Regarding accidents at work, the most common concerns are:
Will I cause my employer financial hardship if I pursue a claim?
The answer is no. Every employer in the UK is legally obliged to purchase an insurance policy that will protect them in the event of such a claim. So it will be the insurance company that pays any money that is owed to you, and it will not come directly from your employer’s pocket. What’s more, by making a claim, you could encourage your employer to make your workplace a safer place for everyone. So no one else need suffer in the way that you have done.
Will I lose my job if I make a claim against my employer?
According to the law in the UK, victims of no-fault accidents are entitled to seek compensation. In addition, your health and safety is legally protected while you are at work, and your employer should place this as their priority. If they do not, and you sustain an injury as a result, then they may have been negligent. As such, you are doing absolutely nothing wrong by seeking compensation, and your boss will be aware of this. If you should find yourself threatened with redundancy as a result of your claim, then you could have a legal case for unfair dismissal.
How much will my claim cost?
With Accident Advice Helpline on your side, you do not need to worry about raising the cash to fund your claim. That is because there are no upfront fees involved and your specialist solicitor will work entirely under the no win no fee agreement. So there is absolutely no financial risk to you if you choose to move forward.
