Making an injury claim in Totnes
Totnes is a market town in Devon, England within the South Devon Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
The hospitality industry is doing very well in Totnes. Unfortunately, the hospitality industry is one in which accidents at work are extremely common, whether due to carelessness on the part of fellow employees, suffering burns or slipping on wet floors.
It is the responsibility of your employer to ensure that your work environment is safe and free of hazards. If you are injured in a work accident that isn’t your fault, it may be that your employer is liable for your injuries. However, many people reject this idea, worried that an angry employer will dismiss them or their injury claim could get their place of business into financial difficulty.
Accident Advice Helpline want you to know that this is not true. It is illegal for your employer to dismiss you on the grounds that you brought a claim against the business. Employers also have liability insurance to cover such incidents, so you can get the compensation you deserve.
If you have been involved in an accident at work in the last three years that wasn’t your fault and you reported your accident to your employer, you could be entitled to compensation. Such compensation can go on to cover medical bills and loss of earnings.
