Financial issues after a workplace accident in Dundee?
If you have had a workplace accident in Dundee and need to take time to recover then this can cost you quite a lot financially. If you need to take a lot of time off to heal completely from your injuries, then your workplace accident in Dundee could actually cost you your job, and thus even more money than you may have first thought.
Either way, having a serious accident is financially draining, with medical bills, lost wages and help around the home all combined. So how can you cope financially in the time that you are healing, and when you are back on track still having to pay off bills and expenses you incurred whilst you were still injured?
If you have to take time off work because you are ill or injured, you should be able to get statutory sick pay from your employer. Whether your illness or injury was their fault or not, your employer is required by law to pay you a certain amount in sick pay for a certain amount of time. This will vary with some companies, as some will offer just what they are required to by law, whilst some will be more generous.
Claiming compensation is a great way to get back some of the money you have lost as the result of your accident at work in Dundee, and also get some extra compensation for the pain and stress you have been through since your accident.
You can call Accident Advice Helpline on 0800 689 0500 to speak to the team about your accident and find out whether or not you have a good enough case for a strong compensation claim.
