We understand that many people feel uncomfortable in making claims against their employer, particularly when they still work for them. But remember, all employers are obliged to have public liability insurance and in the majority of cases, we simply deal with the insurers directly. You do not have to leave your job to make a claim.
CAN I MAKE A CLAIM FOR AN ACCIDENT AT WORK?
Employers have a duty of care to provide a safe working environment for employees. In fact, it is in your employer’s best interest to promote safety in the workplace and to address all accidents and injuries at work promptly and efficiently. If you have been injured, due to the negligence of your employer or a co-worker, you can claim compensation for your injuries.
Employers are obliged to take out Employers Liability Insurance to cover them in the event of an accident in the workplace. If you make a claim for compensation for an injury at work it will usually be your employer’s insurer who will pay your compensation.
