Have you had a slip, trip or fall incident at work? You may be suffering from injuries and off work while you recover, but did you know that you can put in a compensation claim?
That’s right – solicitors in Holtye are available through Accident Advice Helpline to take on your claim. If you’re eligible for compensation, you could be paid money to help you get your life back on track and cope with all those extra hassles – financial and otherwise.
What is a slip, trip or fall incident at work?
A slip, trip or fall incident at work is where you sustain personal injury because you have had an accident at work involving slipping or tripping on something and falling over.
Slips may happen on surfaces that are shiny and wet such as a newly polished floor, or a surface on which oil or water has been spilled. Trips occur when a surface is uneven or there is an obstacle that has not been noticed.
When you fall, you can sustain injuries. You might escape with a few bruises, but you could be unlucky enough to break a bone (or several), or end up with concussion or severe internal bleeding.
Why can compensation be claimed?
Employers are legally obliged to ensure that their staff have a safe working environment. If you sustain an injury such as those detailed above, they are liable – through their insurer – to pay compensation. Claims can be made through solicitors in Holtye.
Many employees fear reprisals if they claim, but they should not worry because the payment will not come directly out of the employer’s funds, and if they were to treat you unfavourably afterwards then they would be breaking the law. Remember, the accident was not your fault; if measures had been in place, you would not have been injured!
