Work Injury Compensation
Work injury compensation claims are made when an employee suffers an injury in their place of employment.
An injury can have a knock on effect with the injured party likely to lose income through their enforced absence.
Depending on the severity of the injury, work accidents can also have a detrimental effect on lifestyle and may even prevent a person from earning a living in the future.
Therefore, people who have been injured at work should investigate their rights and make a work accident compensation claim.
Everyone in the workplace has a duty of care, so if someone has contributed to their own injury they will be on sticky ground when it comes to making compensation claims.
The whole concept of compensation is that someone has suffered an injury because of the actions of someone else. As far as accidents at work are concerned, this could include an employer failing to provide adequate safety for their employees, or permitting work practices that are dangerous.
It should also be noted that employers are not always automatically to blame when it comes to injuries occurring in the workplace. Injuries can also result from another employee’s actions.
Whatever the cause of an injury, the injured party will have to prove that it was not their fault, but someone else’s. In order to do this they will need to enlist the help of a legal professional. The injured party will also need to demonstrate the extent of their injury and will therefore need a doctor and/or specialist’s report.
Any work injury compensation claim can be made up to three years after the incident but it is advisable to file the claim as quickly as possible.
The first thing to do is to make an appointment to see a doctor as, in addition to providing treatment, they will make notes on the extent of an injury.
