You might not be sure what to do next if you have been injured in an accident at work. At Direct2Compensation we can help you understand your rights after an accident at work, but making a claim for personal injury compensation is not the easiest of decisions to make.
People who decide to make a claim for work accident compensation are often amongst the most stressed and anxious personal injury claimants. This is because they are making a claim against a person, business or company that they have a personal relationship with – often a good one.
A common personal injury compensation myth relates to work accident compensation – that making a claim from an employer means the end of your job or the company if you win your claim – and this is not true! Though while claimants need not worry if making a claim will damage their employer, could affect their future with that company, or that of their colleagues and friends, it is natural for people to have concerns.
Your employer has liability insurance
When it comes to work accident compensation, a claim will be made against the employer’s liability insurance cover. All employers should hold insurance to cover their staff should any accidental injuries arise. With the best will in the world, even the most diligent employers and managers can see accidents happen in their workplace. Good employers will deal with their responsibilities after an accident at work in a professional and proper manner, they will record details of an accident in their accident book, report serious (and relevant) injuries/accidents to the Health & Safety Executive) and not stand in their employees way should they need to make a claim for compensation. Bad employers will be less helpful, they may try to prevent access to the accident book and be obstructive towards staff who are injured.
The claim will be addressed to the insurers of the employer and the insurers and your solicitor will then handle the claim in the same way as any other insurance claim is handled.
