Disability Lawyer Peterborough

Disability Lawyer Peterborough - If you have been hurt in an accident at work and your work-related injuries have left you disabled, our law office will fight for your right to suitable damages. Our aim is to ensure that you obtain the benefits you rightly deserve.

Workplace Injuries and Injury Claims are often physically and emotionally hard because the hurt individual should pursue an injury claim whilst also suffering from the injury.

In exchange for giving up their right to take legal action against work-related injuries; employees are given guaranteed compensation for accepted claims under the workers insurance system. Using premiums, the employer finances the program. This is of benefit to the employer, who is given protection from lawsuits under this system of collective liability. Injured workers along with their families are given just compensation, while expenses are spread amongst employers.

Employees could however, file a suit against workers in certain circumstances. Employees could file a suit against staff which are industry exempt from the workers insurance program. Employees may sue fellow employees if they were "outside the course of their employment" when the injury happened. An employee could be entitled to settlement under the insurance plan with respect to a disease or an injury, and can also be entitled to sue an individual in respect of the injury; like for example, an individual driving in the course of their employment could sue the driver of the vehicle that injured them.
