Making a claim with our solicitors in Sinnington
How many people are injured in accidents in Britain on a yearly basis? The answer is thousands and many of them are the victims of accidents that could have, and should have, been prevented. A great number of these accident victims are caught up in accidents that they have had no chance of avoiding. As a result they have found themselves injured through no fault of their own. Our 100% ‘no win, no fee’ solicitors in Sinnington can help if you have found yourself the victim of an accident that wasn’t your fault.
As an accident victim, the injuries you have sustained may be serious enough to leave you unable to return to work for some time. While many of those injured in accidents are able to return to their jobs relatively soon afterwards, some are unfortunate enough to be unable to return to work for months if not longer.
When this happens it can be the case that, in addition to dealing with your recovery, you may also find that you are also dealing with a degree of financial hardship. Some employees are not entitled to sickness pay and while they are unable to work, they are also unable to earn a living.
My accident left me with many unpaid bills
As the injured party in an accident you didn’t cause, financial hardship may be something else that you have to worry about. In the absence of a contract that allows for sickness pay you will be entitled to nothing from your place of work.
As an employee working under what is known as a ‘zero hours contract’, being involved in an accident that leaves you injured is the worst thing that could happen. Not only will you not be entitled to a salary or sick pay but there is a chance that your job could be at risk.
Employees working on ‘zero hours contracts’ can be subject to dismissal if they are not able to work because of their injuries. Such a contract carries no legal ramifications if you are dismissed, thus making it much easier for your employer to terminate your employment.
