Compensation

Compensation

Work accidents can involve minor or serious injuries.

Employers are under a legal obligation to ensure that the workplace is safe and that the wellbeing of workers is a priority.

There are a number of types of accidents that can occur as a result of poor safety standards and procedures, lack of job training or lack of supervision.

The type of injury will depend on the severity and type of work accident.

If you have suffered an injury or loss as the result of a workplace accident you are entitled to make a claim for compensation.

The purpose of compensation is to cover medical costs and loss of income whilst unfit for your pre-injury duties.

If you have been involved in a workplace accident you should seek legal advice as soon as possible as there are time limits imposed by law.  Legal help should come from a qualified compensation specialist to ensure you receive the maximum you are entitled to.
