We all hope that when we go to work we’re going to have a fairly uneventful day, will survive the canteen’s attempt at “lunch” and will make it home before rush hour really kicks in.
It goes without saying that most of us expect to make it through the day without being involved in any form of accident, and certainly without being injured in any way.
For the vast majority of us, this is the case, we go to work and we come home in one piece; however, accidents at work do occur sometimes and it could happen to any one of us, regardless of the area or environment in which we work in.
If you have been involved in a work based accident then you should speak to an injury lawyer in Cromarty today to find out if you are eligible to make a compensation claim for the personal injury you have suffered.
It just takes 30 seconds
You can also take the Accident Advice Helpline’s online test, which you will find on our website. This 30 second test will tell you if you are eligible to make a claim, based on the nature of your accident and the injuries you have sustained and will also give you a rough estimate as to how much financial compensation you can expect to be awarded should you case be successful.
To find out a more accurate description of the potential compensation you could receive you should speak to your injury lawyer in Cromarty who will be able to give you a better idea by taking into account the more detailed circumstances surrounding your claim.
How an injury lawyer Cromarty can help
When you have been injured at work there is often a fear among clients that they are going to be unable to make a claim for financial compensation. Our injury lawyer in Cromarty reports that the majority of the people they speak to regarding work based accidents are concerned that their bosses will treat them differently and may even punish them in some way, potentially even sacking them, if they decide to pursue a claim against the business or organisation for which they work.
Your injury lawyer in Cromarty will be able to discuss all of your concerns with you in more detail, but generally speaking, you can rest assured that you will not be fired as a result of initiating a claim against your employer. All employers are legally obliged to carry certain insurances to guard against work based accidents and injury to staff members, whether full time or part time, and including contractors and ad hoc employees. The insurance is there to cover these sorts of accidents and means that your employer will not be directly liable for the payment of any financial compensation you are awarded as this will be covered by their insurance policy.
You are not alone
Remember, if you have been involved in an accident that was not your fault then you can rely on your injury lawyer in Cromarty to be with you every step of the way.
