When you hear about somebody being injured at work in Sheffield or anywhere for that matter, it probably brings to mind thoughts of an industrial accident, but the fact is that whatever your line of work if you are an injured at work, you could be entitled to compensation. This is the case as your employer has a legal and moral responsibility to protect you at work and to ensure your safety and as such the simple fact that you are an injured at work, suggests that they have shirked this responsibility. This article therefore, will now turn its focus to all of the questions and answers that are pertinent to anyone who has been injured at work in Sheffield or anywhere else and who may have a valid compensation claim.
When and why could you claim compensation?
By law, if within the past three you were injured at work in Sheffield or fall ill and somebody else was demonstrably to blame, then you are entitled to seek personal injury compensation. The reason that this compensation is available is two-fold, firstly it offers some form of recompense for the physical and emotional pain that the victim has suffered and secondly it offers the financial means for the victim to cover the costs which can result from their ailment.
How long do you have to claim?
Generally speaking you can begin proceedings for personal injury compensation at any point during a three year period from the incident in question, but if more than three years pass then you can no longer claim. The only exceptions to this, or any, time limit to claim are cases which involve either injuries to minors or industrial diseases such as asbestos poisoning.
