Compensation Claims against Your Employer
We don’t like to think that we may be hurt at work but every day in the UK, workers are either seriously hurt in accidents that require emergency hospital treatment or, we are working in an environment that is causing our health problems – or maybe we don’t know it yet.
What the law says
Our workplace safety is covered under the Health & Safety at Work Act 1974. The health & safety Executive (HSE) is responsible along with local authorities for enforcing the law, as well as other acts that cover health and safety.
If you do have an eligible claim, you will need the expert help of an injury lawyer in Bishop’s Waltham who will able to tell you more about this important act.
Will it destroy my relationship with my employer?
No it shouldn’t. Your employer has insurance that should cover these possibilities but the other way to look at your compensation claim, is that work practices need to change if they are causing employees to be hurt or injured.
How can Accident Advice Helpline help me?
We are a firm, established for 13 years, to help people make compensation claims.
