Personal Injuries At Work Chorley
Chorley has a wider population of over 100,000, and a broad range of employers, from retailers to large organisations like Leyland Trucks and BAE Systems. Chorley is a thriving market town despite the closure of a number of big manufacturing employers.
The flipside of this is that, unfortunately, when it comes to injury at work or personal injuries, Chorley is as likely to be the scene of an workplace accident as anywhere else.
What you may not know is that your employer has a duty of care towards everyone who works for them. So they are legally obliged to make sure you are working in a safe environment. That means, for example, ensuring equipment and machinery you use for work is properly tested and maintained, and that you have all the health and safety training you need.
Having a injury at work in Chorley and across the UK is more common than you may have realised, and has potentially devastating, life-changing consequences.
Personal Injuries In Chorley, When Can I Claim?
If you’ve been hurt while at work, you may well have a claim to compensation if:
- The accident or injury took place within the last three years.
- You can prove that your employer was the third party at fault.
While many people are understandably reluctant to push for compensation after a workplace incident, you are simply claiming the money which is rightfully yours. You will also almost certainly need it for extra expenses because of your injury, from lost earnings to travel to medical appointments.
What’s more, you can’t lose your job because of making a compensation claim – and you may well be helping make your workplace a safer place.
Your employer’s insurer should, in most cases, be able to foot the bill, providing the right cover is already in place.
