Making a Warrington compensation claim for a work injury
If you have been injured at work, and the accident you have been involved in was not your fault, then you might be entitled to make a Warrington compensation claim. You can speak to one of Accident Advice Helpline’s advisors to find out more.
Accidents at work
Accidents at work are unfortunately very common, and each year hundreds of people are injured in the work place. If you have been one of them then find out today whether or not you could be entitled to make a Warrington compensation claim, and discuss with Accident Advice Helpline if you think making a claim might be the right thing for you.
For the most part accidents at work can be easily prevented. They usually occur because your employer has been negligent in some way and failed in their duty of care towards their employees. If this is the case then you should not be afraid of making a claim against your boss, manager or employer. Our Warrington compensation solicitors have found that this is the main concern of people seeking to make a claim for a work based accident. The simple fact is that the Health and Safety at Work Act 1974 exists to ensure that employers are doing all they can to make sure that the work environment, wherever that may be, is safe and that employees are not being put at risk. If they fail in this by not adhering to the guidelines and regulations, then you have every right to seek compensation from them.
The costs of work-based injuries
There are various costs associated with work-based injuries and accidents, including financial costs and personal ones.
If you have suffered an injury at work you may find that you have to take unpaid time off while you recover. This could obviously see you being financially impacted as a result. Our Warrington compensation solicitors can help you recover these costs back as part of your claim.
Depending on your accident and the injuries you have suffered you may have to pay for expensive medical treatment, or perhaps even equipment, to aid in your recovery. These are known as out-of-pocket expenses and we can also help you recover these costs from the responsible third party.
Unfortunately, many people who have been injured in a work-based accident feel the need to return to work quickly. This can sometimes mean that they start working again before they are fully recovered from their ordeal, which can mean that their injuries are made worse, or their recovery takes longer than it would have done usually. All of this can have an ongoing impact on your health, and mental well-being.
