Should you claim after being hurt at work in Deganwy?
You may be reluctant to claim against your employer. This is understandable, work-based claims are perhaps the most stressful. But there are several reasons why you should consider claiming:
- Claiming will highlight the issue that caused your accident. Hopefully, this will mean that that issue is fixed, so that your accident doesn’t happen to someone else.
- You cannot be dismissed from your job because you have made an accident claim. You have been injured through no fault of your own and have a legal right to seek compensation.
- Your employer’s insurance company will pay your compensation, your claim will not affect company profits.
- The majority of accident claims are settled out of court, so it is unlikely that you will have to face to your employer in a court hearing.
