Experiencing an accident in the workplace and accident at work compensation Purbeck
If you have been injured in an accident at work that wasn’t your fault and indeed could have been prevented if health and safety procedures had been adhered to then you may be entitled to make a claim for accident at work compensation Purbeck. In order to find out if you are eligible for compensation you can contact our team of friendly and expert advisers at Accident Advice Helpline who will be able to talk you through the nature of your accident and injuries with a view to determining who was at fault.
Accidents in the workplace account for a large portion of all the time lost by workers during the course of a year and as such many millions of sick days are lost during this period when their numbers are added together. A great number of those who approach us here at Accident Advice Helpline for help with accident at work compensation in Purbeck have never had time off work for any reason and find the sudden change of circumstances difficult to deal with.
Losing time at work through no fault of your own
Accident victims often find that they are not able to return to work straight away or in any timescale close to what they were hoping for. This is something that can cause a lot of problems especially for those individuals who work on what are known as ‘zero hour contracts’. If you have been injured in a workplace accident that was not your fault and you feel as though you should be entitled to accident at work compensation Purbeck then contact our team today at Accident Advice Helpline.
Working on a ‘zero hour contract’ does not pay holiday pay, sick pay or statutory sick pay if you have been injured at work. So as a result of an accident that was not your fault, you may actually find that you are no longer fit to work and are released from your current employee because you have no legal recourse to speak of in the form of a employer / employee contract. Call our team at Accident Advice Helpline if these circumstances are something that have befallen you as the result of an accident at work.
