Work Accident Claims in Sheffield
One of the more common types of enquiry we have is claims relating to having an accident at work in Sheffield or South Yorkshire. Understandably you might have concerns about taking legal action against a current employer. Let us put your mind at ease.
Firstly, when you call our helpline your call will be entirely confidential and private. Secondly, please be aware that if you decide to make an accident at work claim then any personal injury compensation will typically be paid for via an insurance policy your employer will have – they are required by employment law to have this. So, any payments will not come directly from your employer’s pocket.
In addition to those aspects a company or business is not legally permitted to discriminate against an employee who has made a personal injury claim against them. It’s illegal to sack, fire, or discriminate against people who work for you in this manner.
