Unfortunately, no matter what industry you may work in, workplace accidents can and do occur. Slips, trips and machinery – related accidents can all have devastating consequences for employees as well as lead to financial trouble due to loss of earnings.
What should you do if you experience an injury in St Nicholas at Wade?
If you are unlucky enough to experience an accident or injury at work that was not your fault, you should always seek immediate medical attention. As well as this, try to gather statements from any fellow employees who witnessed your accident, as this can make it easier for you to prove that the accident was not your fault.
All employers have a duty of care towards their workers and are obliged to provide them with a safe working environment. However, although you may be fully entitled to compensation, often people avoid claiming for workplace accidents as people rely on their jobs for income, and do not want to have a bad relationship with their employer in the future.
However, if you suffer a workplace injury that was not your fault, you certainly should seek compensation. Employers have liability insurance, so you will not be hurting them or the company by claiming compensation for your injuries. Workplace injuries should not be taken lightly, as they could have you out of work for a long time which can have a harsh impact on your finances. A solicitor in St Nicholas at Wade can help you seek the compensation you deserve.
