Gaining compensation for workplace injuries in Basingstoke
No matter where you work, it is the responsibility of your employer to ensure that your work environment is safe and free of hazards. People who have sustained workplace injuries in Basingstoke, where the employer was to blame, are entitled to sue for compensation. However, many people reject this idea on the grounds that an angry employer might dismiss them for hiring an injury lawyer that could get their business into financial difficulty.
Accident Advice Helpline want you to know that this is not the case. It is against the law for your employer to dismiss as a reprisal that you brought a claim against them. They also have a legal obligation to have appropriate liability insurance in place to cover any accidents and injuries, and when we here at Accident Advice Helpline negotiate any compensation, it is this insurance that covers any pay-outs.
If you have been hurt at work in the past three years, someone else was to blame, and you reported your accident to your employer, you could be entitled to compensation. This compensation can be used to cover any medical bills, and loss of income. This can help to alleviate any psychological stress and financial strain that you may have been subjected to as a result of your injury; after all – why should you have to suffer the consequences being injured when it wasn’t your fault?
