You have the right to claim
One of the most important things for an employee to remember when making Maidstone personal injury claims is that you have a legal right to seek compensation if you have been injured in an accident that was not your fault.
At the start of your claim you may not know who is legally responsible for the accident you have been involved in, therefore initiating a claim does not necessarily mean that you are making a claim against your employer. When you contact Accident Advice Helpline and start speaking to one of our Maidstone personal injury claims solicitors the first thing they will do is look at the facts of your case.
Initially they will have to determine whether or not you are legally entitled to make a claim in the first place. You can check this for yourself if you wish by taking our 30 second test. They will then start to investigate where responsibility for your accident lies.
If an accident has occurred at work then it might well be your employer who is liable; however, this is not always the case. As a result it is imperative that your Maidstone personal injury claims solicitor looks at all of the facts and investigates matters thoroughly.
Despite it being their legal right to make a claim many employees are nervous about instructing their Maidstone personal injury claims solicitor to seek compensation from an employer. This is because many are worried that they are going to be singled out for bad treatment by their employer, or that their job is likely to be at risk.
The fact of the matter is if you make a claim against an employer it is their insurance provider who will cover the cost of compensation, rather than your employer directly. The company you work for is not going to be put at financial risk, so there is no need to worry about how you will be treated.
If you do have any concerns, mention them to your Maidstone personal injury claims solicitor and they will be able to discuss this with you further.
