Do you need to make Tewkesbury industrial injury claims after being hurt whilst undertaking work experience?
When people undertake work experience, they aren’t normally considered to be an employee. Although they aren’t technically employed by the company they are working with, they should still be covered by their liability insurance and they will still be able to make Tewkesbury industrial injury claims if they are hurt whilst at work.
Of course, if they do need to make Tewkesbury industrial injury claims following an accident, they will need to show that they weren’t responsible for the incident and that they didn’t cause their own injuries. If the company, or another member of staff, was responsible for the incident, it should be possible for the victim to make Tewkesbury industrial injury claims and obtain compensation for their injuries.
As many people who undertake work experience are under the age of eighteen, they often assume that they won’t be able to make Tewkesbury industrial injury claims, even when they’ve been hurt through no fault of their own.
In fact, this isn’t always true. It is possible for someone under the age of eighteen to obtain compensation but they may need assistance to make Tewkesbury industrial injury claims. If you’re under eighteen and you’re planning to make Tewkesbury industrial injury claims, it’s likely that you will be able to do so but you may need a parent or guardian to act on your behalf. If you’re awarded compensation this doesn’t mean that it will be awarded directly to your parent or guardian. In most cases, it is awarded to the victim but put in trust for them if they are under the age of eighteen.
