Are you wondering who pays for compensation in Charnwood? Then you’re certainly not alone. This is a question that we get asked a lot at Accident Advice Helpline. This is understandable, as it’s only natural that people want to know who will pay the compensation should they decide to file a claim.
Your claim will be brought against the person or organisation is deemed responsible for causing your injury. In most cases, they will have insurance in place, which means it will be their insurance company who will pay you the compensation that you’re owed.
You have every right to claim compensation
If you feel guilty or bad about filing a claim against the person or organisation who caused your injury, try not to. Legally and morally, you have every right to. After all, a serious injury can affect your life in a whole host of ways.
As well as meaning you have to take time off whilst you recover, which can be detrimental to your finances, you may also need to rely on friends, family and even professional carers to help you carry out everyday tasks. With all this in mind, it makes perfect sense to claim compensation for your injury.
Claiming against your employer? We can help
Filing a personal injury compensation claim against your employer can be very daunting. However, you’re well within your rights. If you’ve been injured at work due your employer’s mistake or negligence, it’s only fair that you are compensated appropriately.
It’s possible that you’re worried about losing your job. However, this really isn’t something that you need to worry about. Infact, it’s illegal for your employer to terminate your employment simply because you’ve filed a claim against them. So, if they were to fire you, you could then go on to sue them for unfair dismissal.
What’s more, because it will probably be your employer’s insurer who pays out the compensation, you don’t need to be concerned that you’re taking money out of their pocket or damaging their prospects.
