All employers have a responsibility to protect their employees and contractors from accidents and injuries. A ‘workplace’ is not limited simply to the main factory, site, building or office where you work; it also covers anywhere that is used in connection with your work.
Unfortunately common injuries at work are a result of:
We understand that you might be worried about claiming compensation against their employer following an accident at work.
All employers are required by law to have Employers Liability Insurance. Your claim will be made against this insurance policy and not directly against your employer. It would also be an offence for your employer to discriminate against you because of your claim for compensation following an injury.
We also appreciate that if you’ve suffered an injury at work, it may mean that you have to have time off work to recover. You may lose wages and this can put financial pressure on you and your family. As well as securing general compensation for you, we ensure that you are put back in the same financial position you would have been had you not had the accident. This would include the wages that you would have earned, if you have not been able to work because of your injury, and any financial expenses you have had to pay. Where it is appropriate we can also arrange private medical treatment, in order to speed up you recovery.
The sooner you contact us the better, as there are time limits as to when a claim has to be made, and investigating an accident at work claim is easier when the process is started quickly.
