Should I Claim For Work Accident Compensation?

If You Have Been Injured In A Work Accident, You Might Be Wondering If You Should Or Can Make A Claim For Compensation. Let Us Help You

We find that often people have the same questions or concerns, so to save you worrying we have answered the most common ones relating to whether to claim compensation for a work accident here for you.

Simply click on the questions below to find your answers and let us put your mind at rest.

I Am Worried If I Claim I Will Lose My Job!

If you did make a claim and lost your job this would amount to constructive dismissal. The reality is that very few people are ever dismissed in this way because your employer knows that ultimately they would end up paying compensation twice; first for your work accident and then for your dismissal.

The compensation for your work accident claim is actually paid by your employer's insurance company so again there is no reason for your employer to even think about dismissing you simply for making a valid claim for your injuries.

The important person right now is you. If you have suffered an injury through no fault of your own you need to claim compensation for your losses, injuries and expenses, which may well include lost earnings.

I Don't Know How To Claim For Work Accident Compensation?

You do not need to know how to make a claim. Our specialist work accident claim solicitors will take care of everything for you, from completing the initial and often dull claim forms, right through to sending you your compensation cheque. All you need to do is to pick up the phone and call us free on 0800 2888 693 and from that moment onwards we will take care of everything for you. It really is that simple!

I Am Worried I Might Add To The So Called Compensation Culture?

The 'Compensation Culture' is a term that the insurance companies have spent a lot of money bringing into public focus with the sole intention of making people just like you question whether they should make a claim when they are injured through no fault of their own. The reality is that there is no 'Compensation Culture' at all, as admitted by Lord Young who was asked to look into it by David Cameron. So if the Government could find no evidence of it when they specifically went looking for it, you can be safe in the knowledge that there really is no 'Compensation Culture'.

Remember that insurance companies provide insurance cover to make payments to people who are injured by their insured. They calculate their risks very carefully before issuing a quotation for insurance for your employer so as soon as their insured caused you to suffer an injury they immediately put aside the money for your compensation claim (yes, really - this is called their 'reserve'). If you have suffered an injury, this compensation is available for you. If you decide not to claim, the insurers take back this 'reserve' and they increase their profits. You can see why they spend so much money pushing the term 'Compensation Culture' into the media, as it makes good, honest people like you think twice about claiming which will only increase the insurer's profits.
