When you’re thinking about claiming after an unexpected accident in Gwersyllt, there may be some things that are on your mind. Should you worry about claiming, or should you proceed without fear?
Why you might think twice about making a claim about your unexpected accident in Gwersyllt
The trouble with claiming for an accident you’ve had at work is this: you are making a claim against your employer. This can cause you to feel wary of proceeding. After all, you need your job, and if you were to claim for your injuries and win your case, wouldn’t that leave you at risk of getting fired?
Let us put your mind at rest right now about this. You can make a claim without fearing dismissal. Why? There are two things you need to know about claiming at work.
Firstly, money paid out to successful claimants doesn’t come out of company funds. It comes out of employers’ liability insurance, which your boss is obliged to take out. So, if you’re worrying about costing your employer money, you really needn’t.
Secondly, even if it were true that employers had to find the money for claims themselves (which they don’t, of course), it wouldn’t matter. That’s because you are protected from being dismissed purely on the grounds that you made a claim. It would be illegal for your employer to sack you because you wanted compensation for the injuries you sustained at work.
