Leeds, UK – August 1st, 2014 /PressCable/

According to the Health and Safety Executive or HSE, employers have reported over 110,000 work-related injuries in 2012/2013 as told
by the Reporting of Injuries, Diseases and Dangerous Occurrences Regulations or
RIDDOR. A fraction of these reports stem from the Polish migrants of the UK
according to reports from accident claim solicitors ODSZKODOWANIA UK . A dismal
truth here is that there are 603,000 employees in total that have gone through
accidents in their workplace. Going by these statistics, it is easy to say that
workers have been and continue to be reluctant to file accident claims.

The Importance of Filing an Accident Claim

If employee have been injured in the workplace, he or she will need
recovery time from the injury. While out of work, employee is continuously haunted by several financial problems, mainly taxes and
utility bills, mortgage payments, insurance payments and the long list goes on.
Just because worker isn’t able to work, it doesn’t mean he or she has to plunged
deeper into financial miseries. Also, the company won’t have any right to
summon anybody back to work for attendance’s sake because it goes against the labour
code. If the accident happened in the workplace, employers will be held
liable for not complying with the Health and Safety Regulations. Company will,
therefore, pay employee dues as well as compensation granted that file for
an accident claim.

Accident Claims vs The Company

Companies have reputations to maintain. This is the main reason why filing
an accident claim is almost never denied by a company after an impairing
incident. For one thing, company will have to face the media for rejection of a
worker’s claim. Another thing is that subjects the company into queries of
unconstitutionality, particularly for possible negligence of its labourers
concerning rights and privileges.

Various Types of Injury Claims

Aside from construction site, factory and warehouse
accidents, there are far more vaster kinds of calamities encompassed by injury
or accident claims. For example, if it is a part of your job to operate a car
or van, the employer should ensure the vehicle to be a roadworthy one. Roadside
accidents caused by system faults due to lack of proper and regular maintenance
makes worker fully entitled to file an accident claim. If the incident did not
lead to any immediate major injury but an underlying effect that manifests only
after a couple months or even a year, employee can still file for a claim by then as
long as medical reports would suggest that the accident was indeed the reason
behind the condition. More to the point, a worker is able to file for a claim
within the next three years after the incident’s occurrence.

Before filing an accident claim, it is best to seek advice
from a lawyer, particularly one that specializes on workmen’s comp advise spokesmen from Odszkodowania UK
