Will I risk my employment by making a claim against my employer?
It is often a concern that claiming for an accident at work might affect a person’s position or cost them their job, but it is illegal to treat an employee in an adverse way as the result of them raising a health and safety issue, including making a claim.
Actually, we often find an employee is treated better after they’ve made a claim, because their employers become more conscious of health and safety.
We understand making a claim can be daunting, these fears are natural, but we are here to help and guide you through every step of the claims process.
There is also a much wider benefit to society by you making a work injury compensation claim – they do much more than simply benefiting the victim of an accident.
An accident at work claim can be an opportunity for an employer to take actions to avoid repeat accidents which helps protect fellow employees from experiencing similar injuries, they can lead to legislation changes to protect all employees throughout the UK and as all serious injuries have to be reported to the Health and safety executive, they can lead to criminal proceedings in the very worst cases.
Additionally, all business hold liability insurance which prevents the compensation coming directly from their own pocket. Whatever the particular circumstances of your incident, we can provide specialist legal advice to help secure the best outcome and the right amount of compensation.
