I wasn't going to claim at all but they've been giving me a hard time lately so I'm thinking why not

So It's all about stitching the firm up and potentially committing a fraudulent claim?

You've basically admitted you're not [actually] claiming for any injury you sustained, you're claiming 'cus you want to stitch them. Smart move!

If you felt your claim was justified, you'd have claimed at the time, not saved it for a year down the line to use as a weapon when they rub you up the wrong way.

It's "claimants" such as yourself that cause others to have to jump through hoops to get what they're owed.

If you were that bothered by your injury, you'd have spoken up at the time.

Yea, when we need to claim, we will - we won't just do it when it takes our fancy just because we got told off at work one day - which, by their own admission, is what they're doing.

​fill your boots I say. employers fully expect workers not to claim but yet they dont see the value in not acting the a55hole to the employees every now and again

my lot dont see the irony at all....clamp down hard on sickness leave and then huff and puff when ye claim as the sickness was a result of a fellow employees dodgy driving, or outrageous and unsafe working practices

​not its not. he had the courtesy and generosity not to claim when he was perfectly entitled to do so, likely because of the significant goodwill of the company....the company is now being unhelpful so he's decided to claim...perfectly fair, perfectly legal and perfectly legitimate imo

Or he was happy to watch judge judy in bed for three weeks and now wants to find a quick way to make some money for Christmas......
If you have a grievance with company management try to find a solution and make your work environment better for yourself. Doubt claiming a few quid will make it a nicer place to work (more likely the opposite).

Beware of the small print and its been on TV. If they cant win the claim for you then you still end up paying their fees which will run into thousands and a lot more than 3 weeks off work. This is even on those so called no win - no fee rip off merchants as well. Did some OAP's for £3000 in fees through high court for a few letters on no win, no fee.

Don't be silly. It's perfectly normal for people to make a claim around a year later once they have recovered and had time to think about it.

There is a reason why it is the law that you can make a claim up to 3 years after the injury happened, or 3 years after you discovered the injury was linked to the accident.

Companies have insurance for this sort of thing, it is to be expected.


Also, a big reason someone should wait until fully recovered is because once a claim is settled, it's done. So if you decide to sue early on and settle only to later find out the injuries are longer lasting than previously thought or some undiscovered injuries occur from the accident, you're out of luck.

Thanks for the positive comments guys I think some people are a bit to quick to judge someone they have never even met if I was some kind of fraudulent demic I would've gone for a claim straight away but hey what do I know it's just sad how quickly people can jump on someone who is just seeking advice oh well I suppose you've just got to smile and wave

I would be behind you all the way had you had an accident and said 'because injury X is causing me this amount of pain / disruption I wish to make a claim'. You have instead said, I fell out with the company and as compensation for this disagreement I want to claim for a previous unrelated incident (which seems to have not bothered you until now).
