If you have hurt at work in Senghenydd, you might be worried that making a 100% no win, no fee* accident at work claim through the Accident Advice Helpline could lead to you losing your job. You may be concerned that your employer will terminate your employer as a direct result of your claim or that your claim will damage your relationship with your employer to such an extent that you will feel forced to resign.
However, you shouldn’t let these concerns prevent you from taking legal action.
Your employer’s duty to you
Your employer has a duty to take all reasonably practicable steps to ensure your safety at work. This includes providing you with safe equipment, sufficient personal protective equipment, and proper training and supervision. If your employer has failed in their obligations to you and you have suffered a Senghenydd accident at work, you have a legal right to instruct a solicitor to help you to claim for compensation for your injuries and any related financial losses.
Your employer is legally obliged to have liability insurance in place to cover claims arising from accidents caused by their carelessness. Therefore, if you make a Senghenydd accident at work claim, your employer should not take it personally and should instead appreciate that you are exercising your right to seek full and fair compensation for your injuries and losses. In the vast majority of cases, your employer’s insurer will correspond with your solicitor and this means that your employer’s involvement will be limited.
Of course, we cannot guarantee that your employer will respond reasonably to your claim, but it is worth remembering that your employer cannot sack you simply because you are considering making a Senghenydd accident at work claim. If you do lose your job as a result of your claim, it is likely that you will be able to make a separate claim for unfair dismissal. Similarly, if your employer makes your life intolerable and you feel you have no other option but to resign, you may have a valid claim for constructive dismissal.
