Injuries obtained at work
It is common knowledge that there are times when an accident can occur at your place of work that can leave you with either a physical or mental injury. Making a claim against your employer can make many people feel anxious, however these feelings should not put you off of contacting a compensation provider in order to start court proceedings.
Your employer has a responsibility for your physical and mental well-being and should ensure that they have put in place the methods that will keep you safe during your working hours and allow you to have the work-life balance that so many of us crave.
However, incidents do occur and when an accident in the workplace occurs, make sure that your incident is recorded in the companies accident book. If there is not one available, still ensure that you have written the details down and given a copy to your employer for their records.
Do not be afraid to begin compensation claim proceedings against your employer – whilst you may feel unsure and embarrassed about this procedure, it is important that you receive the compensation that you deserve and that they make the changes that will ensure that it doesn’t happen to someone else again.
