Have you had an accident at work?
If you have had an accident at work then there is a chance that the accident in question was caused as a result of something that your employer didn’t do correctly. If this is the case and they are legally found to be liable for your accident and resulting injuries then you could be allowed to make a no win no fee* compensation East Devon claim against them.
Can you make a no win no fee* compensation in East Devon claim?
The easiest way to find out if you could be entitled to make a no win no fee* compensation East Devon claim against your employer is to take our 30 second test.
Over the years Accident Advice Helpline have seen a number of different types of claims made against employers, so we know under what circumstances such a claim is likely to be successful. As a result we have been able to develop our 30 Second Test to provide you with the best and most relevant information regarding your eligibility to make a claim. If you enter details about the types of injuries you have sustained as a result of your accident, we can even give you an estimate of how much compensation you might receive if your claim is successful.
Concerned about making a claim? You needn’t be
We also know that many people are concerned about making a personal injury compensation claim, especially when it is filed against their employer. This is often because people are concerned that their employer is going to treat them differently when the claim is made, and potentially try to hold it against them. However, your employer is not allowed to do this
Employers have a legal duty of care to all members of staff to ensure that they are kept safe whilst performing the tasks associated with their job. If your employer fails to do this and you are injured as a result, then you also have the legal right to make a compensation claim for your injuries.
If you do feel that you have been treated differently by your employer, either during the course of your claim or afterwards, then you can seek additional redress from a HR point of view. Speak to your HR department, or even ACAS for advice and they will do all they can to help you.
