Being put out of work after being in an accident can be soul destroying, especially if you love your job. But when the reason you’re out of work is because of your job it throws in a spanner which can make life really uncomfortable. Accidents at work are not uncommon and can sometimes set you back a long way before you start to get better. Personal injury solicitors in Latimer agree that although you have the right to claim against your place of work, it can be uncomfortable whilst the case is proceeding.
Making a claim and your place of work
In most circumstances your employer will act professionally and comply with all guidelines by cooperating with your chosen personal injury solicitors in Latimer or elswhere. However now and again there are those who choose to act in a way that may make you feel uncomfortable. If you feel that your employer or a colleague is making life deliberately difficult because of the case, it is worth reporting it to your solicitor.
This unprofessional manner is rarely adopted but is used to try and put you off making a claim. The top and bottom of it is, that if the accident was not your fault, you could be entitled to some compensation.
Personal injury solicitors in Latimer and unprofessional manners
If you find yourself facing these awkward circumstances, your solicitor can add any comments or actions to your case file. They cannot stop your employer acting in this way, but doing so may harm their case and leave them open to a potential employment tribunal.
If you are being told that the accident was your fault when it wasn’t, you should also report this to your personal injury solicitors in Latimer or elsewhere.
When a claim is being made against an employer, the ripple effects can be major when it comes to a reputation in the field. Employers should remain professional at all times, however not every manager carries that ethic.
