Should you be worried about claiming after an accident at work in Lancashire? The answer to this is, emphatically, no. You have every right to claim compensation if you’ve been injured in an accident that has been caused by someone else, and this applies whether the person responsible for your injuries is another driver on the road, or the director of the company for which you work.
Yet some people worry about proceeding with a claim, because they fear what might happen to them. Will they be sacked? Will they ever be promoted again? Will they cost their employer a lot of money if they win their case?
The answers to these questions about claiming after an accident at work in Lancashire
Let us tell you why you don’t need to worry about making a claim.
Firstly, it would be illegal for your boss to fire you for making a claim. Seeking compensation isn’t a disciplinary offence. Your employer would not be able to discriminate against you for claiming, so you don’t have to worry about your career progression being hindered, either.
Secondly, there would be no financial reason for you to suffer any consequences as a result of making a claim, either. That’s because the money to cover the cost of your payout, if you win your case, doesn’t come from the company’s funds. It is paid out through employers’ liability insurance. This type of insurance is required to be taken out by all employers, and its purpose is to cover claims by employees who have had accidents at work!
