Common accidents in the workplace in Corby include fire and electrical hazards, slips, trips and falls and chemical incidents. So long as an accident affects you physically (or psychologically) and was no fault of your own, you may be able to make a claim against your workplace employer.
So, if you have recently fallen over and broken your wrist at work because there was a trailing cable, you may be able to form a personal injury claim.
Should you succeed in claiming, your employer’s insurance company will probably provide you with a sum of money in compensation.
Things you need to ask your solicitor
Here are a few questions you should ask your solicitor if you have sustained injuries, in one of the aforementioned common accidents in the workplace in Corby:
- What can I do to improve my chances of winning against my employer?
- What factors could affect the sum of money I can win in compensation?
- What information do you need from me?
These are just a few examples of questions that you could and should ask, prior to and during the claim-making procedure. Once you are clearer on what you are headed for, you could decide whether or not you should make a claim against your employer.
How do you know if you have a claim?
Well, you must provide your solicitor with facts and details, so that he or she can analyse your situation in detail. He or she will assess whether you have a valid claim. If it is felt that you have a weak case, your solicitor will guide you on what could be done to improve your chances of succeeding.
Your solicitor will also provide you with information as to the different types of losses that you could claim for.
