Employee Compensation Laws

Employee compensation laws are in place in the UK to protect workers. Employees who are injured at work are entitled to compensation for loss of earnings and medical expenses as well as pain and suffering and loss of amenity. Compensation can be claimed if the employer is at fault. The compensation can vary in each case and may depend on the injury suffered by the worker and the impact it has had on the person’s life.

After the accident, you need to get medical attention in order to determine the nature and effects of the injury. You should tell the doctor how the injury actually occurred.

You should hire an experienced compensation Solicitor as they are aware of all the complications connected to such cases and help you in the best possible way. Employers have a duty to protect their employees from risks. If they fail in this duty and cause injury to the worker they can be liable. If the injury suffered is serious and long term, compensation can assist in providing financial support to the worker. In the event that the worker is unable to return to work such compensation will be of huge help.

Mrs B was crossing a pedestrian crossing pushing her grandson in a baby buggy when she was knocked to the ground by a car driven by the defendant. The accident caused a complex fracture to her right foot.   Liability was denied as both parties claimed the lights were in their favour. At trial Cooks were successful in proving Mrs B’s case and she was awarded £90,000.00.
