Your employer may be liable if you’ve suffered an accident at work that resulted in you being injured, providing the accident in question was not your fault. If you were hurt as the result of the company you work for failing to provide you with adequate safety training, you may be able to claim compensation. If your superiors failed to ensure that the equipment you were using was safe and you got injured, you may have a case. If an unsafe working environment resulted in you suffering a mishap, a payout could be yours.
At the end of the day, if you’ve suffered an accident at work that was not your fault, why should you be made to suffer without your employer having to compensate you?
Using an injury lawyer in Maidenhead for work-related payouts
The amount of money you could stand to win from your employer by using an injury lawyer in Maidenhead to seek compensation can vary widely based on the severity of your injuries. Payouts can vary from the low thousands to six-figure sums. If you’d like to get a rough idea of the sort of figure you might be able to claim, tap information about your accident into the 30-second claims calculator on the right of our website. This will give you a ballpark figure of what you might be able to expect. You should also take a look at the testimonials page on this very website.
If an injury lawyer in Maidenhead were to be successful in winning compensation from your employer, it would be likely that your employer’s liability cover would pay for any compensation you were entitled to. Most businesses are required by law to carry liability insurance, in much the same way that drivers must legally have at least third party cover to drive on public highways. This would mean it would be likely you would get your payout even if your employer was not in a position to pay it to you.
