Our work environment is the place where many of us spend the majority of our time. Everyone has a right to work in a safe place but sometimes through human error, negligence or forgetfulness, accidents can and do, happen. If you have suffered a work related accident, you probably have a huge number of worries and concerns, as well as many unanswered questions to resolve, particularly if you are considering making a workplace injury compensation claim.
- How will my pay be affected if I have long periods of time off?
- Will my wages be docked for ongoing medical appointments?
- What about childcare?
- Will I still be able to do my job?
