How to make a work accident compensation claim
The decision to make an accident at work compensation claim is often difficult for employees. You may be worried about any repercussions regarding your employment but the duties of an employer include complying with Health and Safety laws and regulations, which have been put in place to make the workplace a safer environment, and reduce the risk of work accidents. If your accident at work is because of a failure in Health and Safety measures or procedures then making a claim and highlighting these failures could stop another accident at work happening to a colleague.
You should not fear for your job as an employer cannot legally dismiss an employee for making a compensation claim for an accident at work.
It is a legal requirement for your employer to have insurance cover, known as Employers Liability Insurance, to cover them in case of any work related accidents so if your personal injury claim is successful, it is the company’s insurers who pay the compensation awarded, not your employer.
It is also possible for employer’s to be held accountable if you are injured at work due to something a fellow employee did, or did not do, as they must ensure, to the best of their ability, that the people they employ are competent in their jobs and do not put other people in the workplace at risk by their actions.
