If you have been involved in an accident at work that you did not cause, and you have been left with injuries as a result, then you could be entitled to make a compensation claim for your injuries if they were caused by health and safety ignored at work in Byfleet.
Here at Accident Advice Helpline, we are a law firm who specialise in helping people make their personal injury compensation claims. We know exactly what is required of the process and as a result can use our knowledge and experience to support you through the different stages.
One thing that we find many people want help and support with is making claims, if they have been injured in an accident at work.
Injured due to health and safety ignored at work in Byfleet?
Most people don’t want to have to go to work. Even if they enjoy what they do, they would probably prefer to be in charge of their own time, and come and go as they please. However, one thing, no matter what their feelings when it comes to employment, that all people expect is to be safe whilst they do their job.
If they find that they are injured as a result of an accident that they did not cause, then the law allows for them to seek compensation against their employer (if their employer was at fault). The problem is that many are nervous about making such claims because they worry how their employer will treat them.
There are concerns that they may be disciplined or even dismissed for making a claim. They also worry about what their colleagues might think of them. If it is a small business, then there can also be concerns that the company cannot afford to pay out thousands of pounds in compensation.
Accident Advice Helpline: making your claim a reality
This is where the team at Accident Advice Helpline can help. We know that claims against employers are actually made against their insurance policies – not the owner themselves. This means that the insurance provider will pay for your claim, it will not come out of the pockets of your boss.
Equally, making a claim is private and should be kept confidential between you and the owner of the business. It is not something that should be discussed with other members of staff. If it is, you have the right to complain and seek redress.
