Have you been hurt at work?
Depending on the type of job you do, you may be based at one location or you may move from site to site. In fact, some job roles require you to travel frequently so you may spend your days on the road.
When accidents happen at work, it can be possible to obtain compensation. If your employer was responsible for the incident, for example, they could be held accountable and you could make a Stroud injury at work claim against them.
Even if you don’t work in just one location, you could still be eligible to make a claim for compensation if you’ve been hurt whilst performing your duties. If you deliver goods, for example, you may not spend a long time at the company base but you could spend hours on the road. If your employer hasn’t provided a safe vehicle or the appropriate equipment to carry out your work and you’re hurt because of this, you could take legal action against them.
Making a Stroud injury at work claim
Before you’ll be able to make a Stroud injury at work claim, you’ll need to have received medical treatment for your injuries. This applies to any type of personal injury claims and it ensures that your injuries are genuine and warrant compensation.
Whilst you may not have sustained very serious injuries, you can still obtain compensation them if you’ve received medical treatment of some kind.
Claiming back the cost of lost income
When you make a Stroud injury at work claim, you should be able to obtain compensation for the injuries you’ve sustained. An accident, however, can have an effect on your finances too and this should be reflected in your claim.
If your injuries have prevented you from working, for example, you may have missed out on income. Similarly, if you’ve been badly injured and will be unable to return to work, you could lose future income as well.
By including this in your claim, you can ensure that you’re compensated for the loss of income you’ve experienced, as well as the injuries you’ve sustained. To find out how much compensation you could be entitled to, why not take our 30-second test now?
