Suffering an accident in your place of work – Claiming accident at work compensation in Plymouth
If you have been unfortunate enough to suffer an accident at work and have been left injured through no fault of your own then you may be entitled to make a claim for accident at work compensation in Plymouth. Every year, hundreds of thousands of individuals just like you are injured at work through no fault of their own and are then expected to recover and return to work in the shortest time possible so that productivity within the workplace does not suffer.
Likewise even though attempts are being made to curb such behaviour, many employers offer their work to employees on a ‘zero hour’ basis which means that if they are ill, injured in an accident, etc. they are entitled to no Statutory Sick Pay (SSP). With this in mind Accident Advice Helpline have been providing help and assistance to many individuals who have been injured in the workplace and left unable to work through no fault of their own and have also sought to have accident at work compensation in Plymouth paid to the injured parties.
Injured at work and not your fault?
If you have been injured in the workplace as the result of an accident that was not your fault then you may well be entitled to make a claim for accident at work compensation in Plymouth. Accidents in the workplace are generally avoidable if all staff members adhere to the health and safety procedures and protocols laid down by your employer and their first aid personnel. However, it can be the case that due to lack of concentration, poor or inadequate training, a failure to keep up with general housekeeping in the workplace etc., accidents can occur and individuals just like you can end up being hurt through no fault of their own.
In many cases, the problem is that nobody wants to make a claim for accident at work compensation in Plymouth against their employer but if your employer has failed in their duty of care which has lead to your injuries (and these may have led to your inability to return to work) then it is only reasonable to expect they make right what it was they were responsible for in the first place. Accident Advice Helpline have been able to provide help and advice to many accident victims who have found themselves in the unenviable position of having to decide whether to make a claim for accident at work compensation in Plymouth against their employer.
