How to make a work injury claim – solicitor in Baltasound
When you have suffered a work injury it can be really difficult to know what you should do. On the one hand you may deserve compensation for any injuries suffered, particularly if your employer’s negligence has caused your injuries. However, on the other hand you will not want your employer to fire you, or to cause a bad atmosphere in a job which you might want to stay on at after the claim has gone through.
First of all, remember that you cannot be fired for making a compensation claim which was the fault of your employer, and if you follow some simple steps you can make the process easier on everyone involved.
Talk to your employer first
Your employer will need to be notified of the accident, including exactly what happened and how you feel that the accident was caused. Make an official report/complaint to your employer directly so that they know what has happened and will have a record of it when you approach them for compensation.
Make your claim straight away
Talk to your employer first about wanting compensation, to see if they are willing to offer you some kind of payout without you having to go through court. If not, then you should let them know that you will be pursuing a claim and then make your claim immediately. Most claims companies will give you up to three years to make a claim, but the faster you do this the more chance you have of being successful.
Remember that you are entitled to compensation
If your employer’s negligence has caused you serious injury then remember that you deserve compensation, and that they should be giving you compensation. Whether your employer agrees with you or not, don’t feel guilty or back down simply because you want to keep your employer sweet.
