How to claim for injuries in the workplace
We go about our daily lives in a way that is totally ignorant of any disaster that could befall us at any time. We go to work assuming that we are safe from harm, knowing that our employer has a variety of guidelines, regulations and laws that they must follow.
When accidents happen at work, the results can be devastating and awkward to live with. It may be that you decide to claim compensation, and if you do then you will need the support and expert legal advice of our solicitor in Torksey.
But claiming for injuries in the workplace is not a welcome prospect for many employees.
“I’ll get the sack”
Many people assume that by claiming compensation for workplace injuries with our solicitor in Torksey, they will face the prospect of losing their job or being demoted. This is against the law and not something that can happen to you.
“I’ll hurt the business and my employees”
You should be safe at work, and if you have been injured as a result of your employer not following correct procedures or regulations, then you have a case for compensation.
The business will have insurance that covers accidents and similar issues; by making a claim, you are also protecting colleagues. If you were hurt because the company or agency for which you work is failing in some safety aspects, then what is to stop your colleagues from being hurt in the same way in the future if the issues are not rectified?
Once the accident has happened, the Health & Safety Executive, in some cases, must be informed. If they are investigating or have investigated the accident and found the company to be at fault, then the company will be liable for your injury. With the expert help of our solicitor in Torksey, you could make a claim for compensation.
“It’ll cost a lot of money”
You will be pleased to know that our solicitor in Torksey, like all the solicitors here at Accident Advice Helpline, works on a no win no fee* basis. This means that you do not need to pay anything upfront in order to get your claim moving.
