Accidents happen to innocent victims every day in workplaces all over the UK, and people do not always realise how far-reaching the consequences of such an accident can be. If you have had an accident at work in the last three years, and it was not your fault, you may be eligible to make a Huntingdonshire accident at work claim.
Victims lives, and those of the loved ones close to them, can be changed forever, all because someone else was careless or reckless.
In this situation, many victims turn to Accident Advice Helpline to make a Huntingdonshire accident at work claim for compensation, a legal right that not enough victims take advantage of.
There is more than compensation at stake when you make a Huntingdonshire accident at work claim
Before deciding whether to make a claim or not, there are a few things you need to consider:
- If your employer’s business was broken into and damage caused, or if a piece of plant was badly damaged in an accident, he or she would have no hesitation in claiming from their insurance company, it is after all why they pay the premiums. The same applies to damage to you if you are injured in an accident at work and make a Huntingdonshire accident at work claim, they are insured for such events, and your claim should not affect the finances of the business at all.
- Your accident could be caused by an ongoing health and safety issue which your employer has not dealt with. Your claim can make this problem even more apparent and so your employer will be more likely to make sure the hazard is dealt with. This can only be good news for all employees, as it will stop one of them from having the same accident as you.
- Accidents usually bring lots of unexpected expenses with them. These can range from small things such as taxi fares to and from medical appointments, to more major things like needing childcare help or some assistance in the home. These expenses appear at a time when your income could be reduced because of being off work, but they are all reclaimable as part of a successful personal injury claim.
Just these three examples show there is more to making a Huntingdonshire accident at work claim than being compensated for your pain and suffering. although that is obviously part of the claim.
