Workplaces can be dangerous, particularly for those who work in high risk areas such as on building sites. Unfortunately, accidents giving rise to injury* can be a common occurrence and in cases where the accident was not your fault, you may be entitled to claim compensation. At MyCase Solicitors we have helped numerous clients receive the compensation they are entitled to due to a workplace accident, providing advice, support and representation to secure a favourable outcome.
It is often the case that people are hesitant to pursue a claim against their employer, but it is important to remember that employers will have insurance policies specifically for scenarios in which an employee becomes injured due to an accident. As a result, compensation is generally sought from the insurance company and not from the employer themselves.
If you become injured at work, the incident should be immediately reported to management and you should seek medical assistance for any injuries occurred. At this point, management should compile an incident report documenting what has happened – we always advise clients to request a copy of this report for their records. By following these steps, you can ensure that you will be properly compensated for losses sustained due to your injury.
