Workplace injuries can have big consequences

You devote an awful lot of time and energy to your employer. It’s only fair that they provide a safe environment for you to work in. Yet thousands of workplace accidents happen every year. And the sad truth is that many accidents could be avoided if employers took proper care of their staff.

There can be big consequences when you are injured at work. Not only is the injury itself traumatic. But your job – of course – is your livelihood. If you lose your income because of your injury, you may begin to struggle financially. Money worries are stressful and can put a big strain on your day-to-day life. That’s not fair. Especially if your injury wasn’t your fault.

Your employer must keep you safe. It’s the law.

Employers have a legal duty to keep staff safe. It’s called their ‘duty of care’. That means they must take measures to prevent accidents as well as providing proper safety equipment and training to stop injuries and illnesses developing over time. It’s why you have every right to seek compensation. Especially if your injury has made it hard – or impossible – to return to work in your preferred occupation. We are here to give you free, friendly guidance on your options. And don’t worry. There’s no obligation to make a claim if you call us for some advice. It’s all about finding out what your options are.

What if you were partly to blame?

It’s not uncommon for an injured employee to blame themselves following a workplace injury. For example, it’s easy to put an accident down to clumsiness or thoughtlessness, when in fact the accident wouldn’t have happened if there had been proper safety measures in place. So don’t blame yourself. Because even if you were partly at fault, in many cases you will still be able to seek compensation.

How much could your claim be worth?

Compensation for an accident can range from a few hundred pounds to tens of thousands of pounds. Sometimes even more. Every claim is different and the amount of compensation awarded can vary, depending upon the individual circumstances of the claim.

It’s best to start your claim as soon as you can

It’s always best to start your claim as soon as you can, while the details of your accident are still fresh. But we understand that seeking compensation is perhaps something that you’ve been putting off. Maybe you’ve been too busy or have been focusing on your recovery. You may not even work for the same employer anymore. That’s perfectly understandable.

However, there are important legal timeframes within which you must start your claim. So it’s best to call us as soon as you are able. We should be able to tell you in one phone call whether or not you are entitled to compensation.

Who pays your compensation?

Making a claim against your employer can feel daunting – for obvious reasons. You don’t want to put your job at risk or jeopardise your relationship with your colleagues. Or perhaps you are worried the company you work for could face financial hardship if you pursue a claim. But there’s a key point that’s important to keep in mind.

Any compensation you receive won’t actually be paid by your employer. All companies are legally required to have liability insurance to cover claims for injuries. So rather than your employer footing the bill for your compensation, the money will come from an insurance company. That’s a big relief for a lot of people we talk to.

It’s also reassuring to know that there are laws that prevent an employer from treating you differently if you make a personal injury claim against them. If they tried to sack you it would be a case of unfair dismissal, while any negative treatment you receive as a result of your claim would be grounds for constructive dismissal. The law is there to protect you.
