Accident at work
If you have suffered an accident at work resulting from the employer’s fault, remember that in addition to the compensation of ZUS you are entitled to compensation from the company in which you work. Unfortunately, in practice it often means the need to demonstrate the undeniable guilt of the employer, involving eg. On the wrong organization of working conditions, overloading subordinate duties, lack of specialized training or forced to work on the defective equipment. Sometimes the gathering sufficient evidence to obtain compensation (such as photographic documentation or witness statements) is impossible without the help of professionals.
It is worth noting that the definition of an accident at work involves a sudden event caused by external factors, which occurred not only in the performance of professional duties in the workplace, but also during a business trip, on the way to work and on the occasion of acting on behalf of the employer, even without his command.
