Accidents At Work Compensation
If you are involved in an accident at work you may be entitled to make a ‘no win no fee’ claim for compensation.
Accidents at work are very common and can happen in any type of job. Your company has a set of responsibilities to ensure where you work is safe and the risk of an accident is minimised. If you are injured at work or whilst carrying out work duties, you should always report any accident or fill in the accident book. This will help with any claim that you might pursue.
Your employer will have insurance in place for accidents in the workplace, so any claim isn’t paid out of your employers pockets. Your job is not at risk if you make a claim.
