You are entitled
Entitled. It’s a strong, definite word. But if your manager has allowed you to be injured at work, when they were capable of preventing your injury, then you are entitled to claim compensation.
That’s the way the law sees it. If someone harms you through their negligent actions, you’re entitled to justice and the way justice is granted to you in injury cases is through the workplace accident compensation claim process.
So many people feel guilty about claiming compensation but the law only provides genuine justice in genuine cases. There is nothing to feel guilty about if you are entitled to make a workplace accident compensation claim – it is simply a financial award that attempts to put you back in the position you were in before you were injured.
So should I make a workplace accident compensation claim?
If you feel that your injury has altered your life or your financial situation, you should allow the law to make a judgement on how to put it right. It’s about obtaining fairness and justice. A workplace accident compensation claim can also force your employer to acknowledge the impact of their decisions and actions, which could mean that your colleagues are provided with a safer working environment.
The impact of your workplace accident compensation claim is much bigger than a mere financial payment. It is a way to get the best medical care for your injury and reimbursement for the financial loss and pain you have suffered. It is justice, it is an acknowledgement of wrongdoing and it is a way to improve your working environment for the future.
My employer is very large – I don’t stand a chance of success
