Events Where You Might be Entitled to Claim Compensation

Although it might not be something that you want to think about, there can come a time when events happen that are out of your control. If this does occur, you could actually be entitled to claiming compensation. To do so, you will need the services of a lawyer, many of which actually operate on a “no win, no fee” basis, meaning that they will only take a cut of services in the event that they make a successful claim. There are whole host of different events where you can claim compensation. Read on now in order to learn more. 

Workplace Injury 

Workplaces should be spaces where you feel safe to carry out your work to be the best of your ability. If you end up being injured while at work, especially if it wasn’t your fault — for example, as the result of malfunctioning machinery or inadequate signage — then you are definitely entitled to claim for the workplace injury, especially if it has impacted your ability to work. This has also been expanded to include contracting coronavirus, especially if your workplace did not do enough to promote a healthy workplace.  If you are currently working at the same place, it’s worth consulting with a lawyer first before you make a claim, as you could fall out of favor with your current workplace. 

Birth Injury

For many women, giving birth, despite being incredibly painful, can be one of the most amazing experiences, bringing new life into the world. With that said, if there are injuries involved with giving birth, especially as a result of negligence on behalf of the hospital, then you might be entitled to make a claim.

Unpaid Wages 

One of the most stressful events that can happen when working flat-out at a job, is not getting your wages paid on time. If your wages are not paid within a reasonable time-frame, you might be entitled to sue for them. Just be aware that lawyers would take a cut of your pay out. The only event that you would have to be wary of is the company declaring bankruptcy, meaning that sadly you would not be entitled to very much at all, although the laws on payouts do happen to vary depending on which state you make that claim from. 

Refusal of Health Insurance Provider to Pay Out 

If you are in the need of critical surgery or treatment but your health insurance provider refuses to pay out, and you suffer as a result, you might be entitled to claim against them. This is especially true if you can prove that the treatment would’ve helped you to get better. This is even more true when it comes to a family member who dies as a result of a health insurance provider not paying for critical surgery or treatment.
