Myths about claiming in Suffolk for compensation is just one of the concerns people tend to have when it comes to making a compensation claim. Having already spent time either in hospital receiving treatment for their injuries or having booked time off work to see their GP, the last thing they need is more time off and lost earnings.
People are often sceptical about compensation claims and getting the law involved as it is, as they believe that it’s a long, complicated and expensive process. As a result they often choose not to make a claim, even when they’re fully entitled to do so because the accident wasn’t their fault.
When you talk about anything to do with the legal system, one of the first things people think about is money and just how much any kind of legal representation might cost them, especially to get the best lawyers.
The complicated legal system, and the myths about claiming in Suffolk
Then there is a “grey area” surrounding accidents that happen in the workplace. A lot of people are hurt at work each year in accidents that could have been prevented if management and colleagues had followed health and safety procedures, or if staff had been provided with the correct equipment for the task at hand.
When they then sustain an injury, they are dead set against making a claim because they think it could cost them their job or risk their future prospects within the company. In actual fact, any claim made against the company would come out of the insurance, and your employer cannot hold the claim against you if it is proven that they were at fault in any way.
