Hurt at work, can I sue?

There are many people who inure themselves at work, although very few know that they are in a legal position to gain compensation. If you are injured at work due to the negligence of the organisation or other employees who work for the organsiation then there may be a case for compensation. Rather than actually suing the orgnisation, people are recommended to claim compensation through a claims firm. Claims are likely to be successful if the person injured can prove that it was due to negligence that their injuries occurred.
In the past there have been many successful claims by employees against their employers. In many cases these claims are related to the organisation failing to fulfill their legal requirements. For example in some areas of industries it is the legal requirement of organisations to provide protective clothing to employees. If the organisation fails to do this and an injury occurs to an employee then the employee will be in a legal position to claim compensation. Employees who have been injured in the work place should contact a claims firm who will manage the claim on their behalf. The claims firm will contact the work organsiation and prevent the case to them, the organisation will then have the opportunity to admit liability. If they admit liability then the firm will not be required to go to court and in the majority of cases a financial lump sum will be agreed between the employer an employee. If the organisation does not admit liability then the employee must make a decision as to whether to go to court. In cases where the organisation is clearly at fault and there is significant evidence, employees are advised to go to court as they are likely to have a successful trial. Although all cases are different and therefore a claims firm will provide suitable evidence and also advice on the likelihood of a successful trial.
Employees who have been injured in the work place are in a very strong position to have a successful compensation claim especially if there is substantial evidence. Employers who are aware they have not met their legal requirements will settle claims out of court as they are aware that it will be very bad press for the organisation if they do not. Going to court will also be a very expensive experience for an organisation, especially if they are aware that they are guilty.
