Making a work injury claim with injury lawyers in Pen-y-cae
If you have been injured at work then it is up to your employer to compensate you for any injuries which were the result of their negligence. Whether you have sustained an injury due to a trip and fall, or through not being provided with the safety equipment you need to stay safe in your work, your employer has a duty of care to you which they have not lived up to, and owes you money to compensate you for your injury. If you want to make an injury claim then there are some steps to take to make sure you put together the best case for compensation and are able to carry on working in your job.
- Tell your employer about the accident. As soon as the accident happens you should tell your employer so that it can be noted down and there is no opportunity for them to deny that the incident occurred. Telling your employer what has happened will also give them a chance to offer compensation of some form if they feel it is appropriate.
- Tell your employer that you will be making a claim. If your employer hasn’t offered you compensation for your accident then let them know that you will be seeking compensation. This gives them another chance to offer compensation, and allows you to open a dialogue with them about what you feel is appropriate compensation for your injury. It also helps to be upfront if you intend on staying in your job.
- Make a claim asap. If you wait too long then you may not have enough evidence of your injury or the incident. You also need to make a claim within 3 years of the accident or it is very unlikely that anyone will take your case on.
