Personal injury lawyers for solicitor firm Fentons say that those who suffer injuries at work, yet decline to make personal injury claims, could end up being inadvertently responsible for the very same incident happening to one of their work colleagues. The accident claim experts say that those who choose to pursue a claim are guaranteeing that the circumstances that led to their own injuries are addressed by their employer, either reducing or completely eliminating the risk of someone else suffering identical injuries, and could even be responsible for helping to save lives in the long run, as well.
One Fentons spokesman commented that personal injuries sustained at work can be quite serious, especially when they lead to debilitating injuries. If incidents are reported to employers who choose not to take action, there is nothing to say that the same incident will not happen again to another unlucky worker, yet by pursuing a personal injury compensation claim, these workers ensure that their employers will either be required by law to make changes or to at least remedy the situation to avoid more lawsuits in the future.
Many injured employees are reticent to begin a claim against their employer, fearing that their life at work would become unbearably awkward and uncomfortable. However, claims are handled between the company’s insurance firm and the claimant’s legal team, leaving the worker and their employer free of the need to butt heads in any way, shape, or form.
