Can I sue for work injury?
If you’ve been injured at work and the injury was caused as the result of your employer or a colleague, then you have the right to sue them. Employers would also be deemed to act unlawfully if they make your working life more difficult after you have began the process of seeking compensation from them.
You may sue your employer for both losses and damages as a result of your injury. These can compensate for pain, distress and psychological damage as well as seeking compensation for medical expenses.
How do I claim for work injury?
Make sure you have reported the accident to your employer and seek medical advice as soon as possible. You should also take photos of injuries and the scene where the incident happened, as well as getting any witnesses to come forward.
Next, you should seek legal advice from an accident at work solicitor, who can explain whether you have a claim for compensation. Your solicitor can send a legal letter to your employer seeking compensation. The employer may decide to settle out of court, but in some cases the case may go to court, where your solicitor can provide full representation.
Are you entitled to full pay if injured at work?
It’s important that you follow the procedures set out in your employment contract in order to receive statutory sick pay.
Your employment contract should state whether you are entitled to “contractual sick pay”. If you can’t get statutory sick pay then you may be entitled to Universal Credit.
