Injury at Work
Have you had an injury at work? Are you required to take time off work? Did you know that employers have a legal obligation, but also a duty to provide their employees with specific health and safety standards to reduce the risk of injury at work? Whether you work in a 9-5 job or a construction site, if you have had an injury at work, our experienced solicitors will provide help and guidance for you through an initial fee and confidential consultation.
All employers are required to keep a record of any injury at work under the law of the UK. Having these records will also help to secure the best compensation that you deserve & form a concrete basis for your compensation claim. Subsequently, we recommend keeping hold of any relevant documents such as receipts of medical treatment, paperwork with your employer relating to the injury and any loss of earnings from time off work.
Often workers may feel that claiming against their own employer can place their job security and career opportunities into jeopardy, however the vast majority of employers are keen to ensure you receive the compensation you deserve for an injury at work. Furthermore, there is no reason at all to worry about being replaced at your current position, losing your job or being treated differently if you are claiming against your current organisation/employer. Whoever you are employed by, they are legally bound by rules and regulation to not terminate your contract if you make a compensation claim due to an injury at work.
An injury at work is the most common cause for compensation claims every year in the UK. To understand the facts of your injury at work, our solicitor will require the following information:
- The date of the accident
- Where & how it occurred
- Contact details of any witnesses
- Details of your injuries & any medical treatment received
- Proof of your loss of earning along with any other financial expenses caused by your injury
- Whether you are a member of a trade union or if you have insurance policies which partially cover any legal costs for you.
Upon making the claim for an injury at work, our solicitors will establish your case, negotiate on your behalf and assist with securing the best costs for future recovery. Here at ScotLawyers4U we consider certain factors to determine your compensation amount:
- Type of injury
- Medical records of discomfort and suffering
- Loss of earnings
- Psychological effects
- Medical treatment received
Subsequently, the total compensation received in all claims relating to injury at work relies on the relevant proof and evidence that are available to the solicitor, such as witnesses who may provide testimonies of the accident. This will help to strengthen the case and secure the greatest compensation for you.
