There are many reasons why you could need to make a South Yorkshire accident at work compensation claim, but there are also many reasons why you may be concerned about doing so. Perhaps you are worried about the way that your employer may treat you after you have made a personal injury claim. This however is not a concern as it would be against the law for your employer to let you go because of a claim or to treat you differently because of your claim.
If you are concerned about the effect it may have on the company’s finances and all the other employees again you should not be, as your employer should legally have an insurance to cover them against personal injury claims in their workplace.
Sadly no one can predict when, how, where or why an accident happens. Although, our employers have to ensure our safety while we are at work and even when they do, do everything in their power to protect us accidents can still happen. All workplaces have their own risks and the types of accidents that occur and the injuries sustained will be different depending on the working environment.
However much an employee tries to protect their employees if an accident happens in the workplace that was not the employees fault then they are well within their rights to file a South Yorkshire accident at work compensation claim against the employer.
When we are involved in a workplace accident we are suddenly also burdened with a financial pressure as we may lose earnings and have extra costs such as transport, prescriptions and childcare as our injuries mean we cannot do certain things for ourselves at the moment. By making a claim for compensation, you could get back any lost earnings, a payment for your injury and even the extra cost you have had due to your accident.
