Common accidents in the workplace in Dacorum cause misery for workers every year. Numerous people suffer from such accidents on a daily basis, but are not aware of the fact that they do have the right to claim against their workplace or/and employers, for not providing them with safe working environments.
Or there are those who fear the impact it will have on their jobs and careers, because they feel that employers have the legal right to fire their employees for claiming.
Before all else, you should know that no employer has the right to fire an employee for claiming, because it is the latter’s right to do so. You cannot deny them their legal right, after all.
What are some of the most common accidents in the workplace in Dacorum?
Workplace accidents range from slip, trip and fall incidents to chemical hazards, electrical hazards and work-related fractures, too.
If you can prove that these accidents have occurred through no fault of your own and it is possible for you to establish that you were not liable for such accidents, you could be awarded a sum of money in compensation, so you can recover from the financial loss that you are likely to incur.
As an employee you are likely to incur such losses due to injuries sustained in such an accident. For example, you might be a waiter at a restaurant who cannot work and thus lose out on wages for months.
So, you can claim for your loss of monthly wages – as long as you can prove that you have suffered the loss. You will need to show your wage slips from before and after the accident took place.
