Can you lose your job because of claiming compensation?
If you are an employee who has sustained injuries because of common accidents in the workplace in Suffolk Coastal, you should consider making a claim against your employer. This will give you the opportunity to be compensated for any injuries you’ve sustained, providing they weren’t your fault.
However, most employees tend to be skeptical about doing so, because they fear that they will end up losing their job for filing the claim. However, no employer is allowed to let go of an employee for making a genuine compensation claim. It is your legal right to do so, if you have been injured through no fault of your own.

What other evidence could help?
Medical records should not be only the only type of evidence that you choose to gather. For instance testimonials could be used as evidence. It would also be a good idea to look around for CCTV cameras as video footage could help to prove that you weren’t responsible for the incident.
