FAQs about working with a West Somerset workplace injury specialist
If you’ve had an accident at work, you may be weighing your options when it comes to claiming compensation. If you have questions about what you’re entitled to and how to go about making a claim, read on to read answers to some of the most frequently asked questions about seeking compensation for injuries sustained in an accident at work. We have our own West Somerset workplace injury specialist who can help you.
Why should I make a claim?
Many people are made to feel guilty or ashamed of making a claim, but the fact is, you are within your legal rights to do so. You can make a claim if you have been injured within the past three years, and you were in no way at fault for your accident. There is plenty of legislation in place to protect employees, and yet accidents still occur in UK workplaces every single day.
In fact, statistics from the Health and Safety Executive reveal that in 2012-2013, there were over 78,000 reported workplace injuries. If your employer has neglected to comply with health and safety legislation and you’ve been left to pay the price, don’t just let them get away with it. You should make a claim to ensure you are not left out of pocket after the accident, and to ensure your employer is held to account.
