If you have been injured in a St Edmundsbury accident at work, your first concern should be your health. But after you have received medical treatment, you may have questions as to who should pay for your nursing care costs and for the earnings you have lost as a result of being unable to work.
If your injury was caused by the negligence of your employer, you may have the right to bring a compensation claim against their insurance company. In order to receive the compensation you deserve, you must show that your employer owed you a duty of care. This should be simple, as your employer’s duty to protect you from harm is enshrined in the law. You must also prove that your employer breached their duty of care and that this breach caused you to sustain an injury and/or financial losses.
Apportioning the blame for your St Edmundsbury accident at work
If your case is clear cut, you should receive a compensation settlement that reflects the pain and suffering you have gone through and includes all the financial losses and expenses you have encountered. If you were partly to blame for your St Edmundsbury accident at work, your employer’s insurance company will reduce your settlement accordingly. For example, if you were 50% to blame for your accident, they will reduce your settlement by 50%.
At Accident Advice Helpline, our job is to maximise the amount of compensation you receive from your employer, so if you wish to make the most of your St Edmundsbury accident at work claim, you should not have to think twice about calling our Freephone helpline and enlisting our help. We will use our 30-second test to assess your claim and, if you have a case for compensation, work closely with you to ensure that you recoup all your losses and expenses through your claim. We will even ensure that your claim includes the cost of any care and assistance you have been fortunate enough to receive from your family and friends.
Under the Civil Procedure Rules, we will negotiate the settlement of your claim with your employer and their insurance company before we consider taking your claim through the courts. If your employer disputes your claim, or fails to provide you with a fair settlement, we may have no other choice but to let a court judge weigh up all your evidence and rule on the amount of compensation you should receive for your St Edmundsbury accident at work.
