Accidents at work, unfortunately, happen all of the time. Instead of making a personal injury claim, many employees delay pursuing compensation for a multitude of reasons.
We explore the top reasons why employees delay making personal injury enquiries and why this could be harmful to a successful compensation claim.
If you have been injured at work within the last three years and any of the reasons below have deterred you from pursuing an Accident At Work claim, now may be the perfect time for you to contact Paul Crowley & Co the serious injury specialists, here’s why…
1. You don’t want to lose your job
Many employees resist pursuing a personal injury claim they know they are entitled to due to pressure from work.
Employees may feel as though they will be fired if they try to pursue a claim, or they will be subject to a hostile environment at work.
Some employees may have built a strong personal relationship with their employer and so don’t want to upset someone who they consider a friend.
You can’t be fired for making a claim
Legally, you cannot be fired for making a personal injury claim.
Should your employer try and fire you because you are enquiring about your workplace injury, you would then be entitled to make an unfair dismissal claim.

“By law you cannot be dismissed from your role for bringing an injury claim against your employer, having said that it is natural to have reservations.

3. You are waiting for your next job
Some employees may be waiting until their contract has finished or they have been let go before deciding to reach out to a serious injury specialists.
Should their contract get renewed, they may decide keeping their new contract is more important than pursuing a claim.
The sooner you make a claim, the better
Your claim may require evidence such as witness statements or CCTV footage, the sooner you begin pursuing your claim the easier it will be to collect this evidence and strengthen your claim. Witness statements, for example, may become vague if the incident took place over a year ago.
