All you need to do is give us a call and we’ll do everything we can to help you get full justice for your case. In this article, we’ll look at some of the things you should consider when making a claim against your employer.
When you’re hurt at work
Not many of us love going to the office, but we at least expect it to be a safe environment. However with many small businesses operating on slim profit margins it’s not all that uncommon for corners to be cut and when that happens things can start going wrong.
Claiming compensation in Mansfield
If you have an accident at work this can leave you in an awkward position. Many people may be reluctant to claim because they are worried about what effect this might have on their employment prospects. However, you shouldn’t be worried about this as it is against the law for any company to take action against an employee because they have made a complaint against the company. If that happens then you may well have grounds for further action against your employer.
Another area of concern is how you’ll earn money during any time off work. Some firms will take different approaches to this issue. Most will have a certain number of sick days which you can take off with no questions asked. Beyond that they may reduce or cut your income completely. A few will offer no sick pay at all.
This can leave you in a pickle, because if your injury leaves you unable to work, you may be left with no alternative way of earning money.
Don’t despair, though, because the amount of money you should have earned should be incorporated into your claim for compensation. So you should always keep a note of what you’ve earned and at what point to ensure you get the full amount that you’re owed.
Finding the right lawyer
When it comes to claiming compensation in Mansfield the most important thing is not – as many people assume – finding someone who is located in your area, but finding someone who has the right type of experience. They will be able to offer you a much improved level of service and a guarantee that no matter what happens you’ll have someone who really understands this area of the law.
