Like road traffic accidents, even work related accidents are very common these days. But, there's a difference that very few of them are actually presented for compensation claims. The reason is very obvious that the majority of people stay afraid of going against their employers.
They reluctantly bear the physical and financial pains of personal injuries received from accidents and do not dare to go for work accident claims. Practically, it is nothing short of watching the wrongs happening in the daylight and keeping mum in the name of raising voices against it.
Somewhere this situation can blame also to unawareness of employees that their employers are responsible for ensuring a safe working environment at the workplace. No matter what occupation or industry you are in, you employer is bound to abide by the norms of 'duty of care'.
It means that employers have the onus of doing anything and everything, that is practical, to ensure the welfare of their employees and if they fail to do so, they are breaking the rules of employee welfare.
When and how to get ahead with work accident compensation claims?
