According to figures obtained by a national newspaper in November 2014, local councils had paid out more than £101 million in compensation to their workers in the preceding five years. The paper, as it often does, took a typically cynical view of work-related personal injury compensation claims, mocking a number of the cases it uncovered. It took particular glee in relaying stories that it seemed to think demonstrated the trivial injuries people are able to make claims for.
What the paper did not take into account is the fact that some injures that might sound far from serious when written down on paper can actually have a huge impact an person’s life. As such, it is only right that these people are able to avail themselves of the services of a top Hyndburn no win no fee* work accident personal injury firm and seek the recompense to which they might be entitled.
Injury severity and Hyndburn no win no fee* work accident claims
Contrary to the paper’s position, local councils do not pay accident payouts to anyone. In fact, they often go out of their way to avoid having to settle such claims due to the fact that they have to operate on very tight budgets.
But the media do not always know all the facts, or just how bad even what seems like a minor injury has affected someones life. For instance, a broken leg does not sound to drastic, but if your job is as a driver you will have to lose time from work, and that means living off a reduced income. If the broken leg has been caused in an accident at work, that was the fault of the employer, it is only fair that the victim be compensated. A Hyndburn no win no fee* work accident claim can also make them more aware of health and safety matters as well, making the workplace a safer place to be for all their employees.
