When an employee is hurt or injured in a work related incident, a compensation claim could ensure that their employer takes action to avoid a repeat.
(PRWEB UK) 1 June 2013
Accident Advice Helpline, a no win no fee specialist solicitors has stressed the importance of accident at work compensation, not simply for the work injury victim, but also the rest of the workforce.
From health and safety issues and repetitive strain injury, to industrial deafness and damages linked to vibrating work equipment, Accident Advice Helpline specialist work injury lawyers help thousands of UK workers to claim the compensation they deserve, yet in spite of this, many who have legitimate grounds for a claim take no action against their employer.
Some worry that an accident at work claim could cost them their job, and workers at small businesses are reluctant to claim compensation at their employer’s expense. But Accident Advice Helpline has moved to dispel these fears, and even suggest that a claim could be positive for the company in the long run.
When an employee is hurt or injured in a work related incident, a compensation claim could ensure that their employer takes action to avoid a repeat. This is not only better for the victim, but their colleagues, and even their employer who will avoid further legal action in the future.
Greater safety measures could be installed at a place of work, and new ways of working can be introduced to safeguard the well-being of the workforce. With this in mind, it is the responsibility of every worker to launch an accident at work claim, when necessary.
Businesses large and small hold liability insurance which means that they don’t have to pay an injury at work claim themselves and won’t be out of pocket. Workers at company’s with very few staff can often feel responsible to their boss, but they could be entitled to accident at work compensation, and their employer will suffer no direct expense. Some may fear some form of reproach, but workers cannot be fired for seeking accident at work compensation. If they have appropriate grounds for a claim, it is their right to pursue it with the help of a specialist work injury lawyer, such as the experienced team at Accident Advice Helpline.
TV consumer champion Esther Rantzen has long been a supporter of the Accident Advice Helpline, and speaking on behalf of the firm she said: “The law states that if you’ve been hurt, and someone else is to blame, you should be compensated”
“One of their experienced advisors will help you every step of the way and you can find out within minutes whether you could claim”.
