If you have been injured at work and the accident was not your fault but was caused through negligence or was the result of carelessness then you employer may be responsible and accountable for this. If this is the case then you might be entitled to bring a claim for compensation against your employer or company. This can seem a daunting prospect as you may be worried about the consequences of bringing legal action against your employer but the results can be rewarding and beneficial for you.
Suing your employer might not be something you have ever really thought about or given much consideration to, but if you suffer an accident at work or have an injury which is the fault of your employer due to negligence, being issued incorrect equipment or poor maintenance then you should seriously consider some form of action. There are work accident solicitors who have the specialist knowledge and experience to make a proper complaint against an employer and seek compensation for you. If you have been injured at work whilst doing your job then you should be able to make a claim without being worried about the threat of bullying or intimidation from your employer.
Many accidents that take place at work and cause injury result in the injured employee having to take time off work and can lead to loss of earnings. If this happens to you then you should seek advice from a solicitor about bringing a claim against your employer. If you are successful in making a claim then you can start to get back to where you were before the accident took place. Claims against employers are not done in a vengeful manner but in order to compensate the injured victim for the injuries suffered and another other losses incurred e.g. loss of earnings. There is clear advice available about legislation that can be followed for claiming against a company or your employer and it is made clear what the compensation is designed to be.
When you are trying to decide whether you should be making a claim against your employer it is important that you seek advice from a solicitor so that you are able to obtain some independent advice and guidance about the situation and about what the best cause of action will be. It is necessary that you are able to act without any threats or intimidation and that everything remains professional.
