Have you been injured whilst carrying out your duties at work? This shouldn’t even happen, because employers are obliged to ensure their employees’ safety in the workplace.
However, as you’ve found out, accidents do happen. When they do, they can cause a lot of pain and suffering. While this may be difficult to accept (and understandably so) there is one thing that you can do to improve your situation. Claiming after an accident at work in Knowsley is a possibility, and if you call Accident Advice Helpline, we could assist you.
Why you should consider claiming after an accident at work in Knowsley
The fact that you’re entitled to claim because your employer’s at fault for your injuries is reason enough anyway, but making a claim will have other benefits.
The sum of money you will receive, if you win your case, is perhaps the most obvious benefit. It will comprise an amount for the pain and suffering, and an amount to cover the financial losses you’ve incurred as a result of the accident. Being off work can mean a reduction in earnings, and your expenses can significantly increase when you need to use taxis, hire home helps, and take prescription medication.
Another thing to think about is the positive effect your claim could have on your workplace. An accident resulting in a compensation claim will prompt your employer to review the risk assessment procedures and safety measures in your workplace.
This will mean that your colleagues, and you, when you return to work, are less likely to have accidents in future.
