Edinburgh Accident at Work

If you have been injured on the job, you will have a lot to deal with such as recovering from your injuries and trying to return to work, as well as getting by on an income that is probably less than you were on before your accident occurred. Fearing that your employer will fire you because you are considering making a compensation claim is last thing you should have to worry about, but at Accident Advice Helpline, we understand that these fears are very real and they have the potential to affect your chances of making a full recovery.

Understand your right to receive Edinburgh accident at work compensation

Making a compensation claim is a legal right, and in the UK, it is illegal for your employer to fire you or retaliate against you simply because you wish to file a claim against them. If you are considering making a claim, but you are fearing the consequences of exercising your legal rights, you could benefit from seeking free, no-obligation legal advice from our friendly personal injury team.

The law provides you with a high level of protection for work-related accidents; it will cover you even if your injuries occurred as a result of an Edinburgh accident at work caused by your colleagues. However, this does not mean that your employer will foot the bill if you win your compensation claim.

When you file a claim for Edinburgh accident at work compensation, you will be taking legal action against your employer’s liability insurance provider, not your employer. Your employer will have to pay an excess but this probably will not put them out of pocket. Moreover, if your employer does fire you or take other adverse action as a result of learning about your claim, you may have a right to make a second claim for unfair dismissal.
