Will making a claim affect my job?
Often, people worry that making a claim against their employer will affect their job or relationships with colleagues.
Legally you cannot be dismissed for bringing a claim against your employer.
Furthermore, all employees have the right to claim compensation if their employer doesn’t fulfil their duty of care to protect their employ’ health, safety and welfare.
If you have concerns about the financial impact on your employer, be reassured that UK employers are legally required to take out employers’ liability insurance. This insurance should cover them for work accident claims.
How do I know if I can claim compensation?
All cases are unique. But, if another person was responsible for your accident or injury at work, it is likely you could claim compensation.
This is true regardless of whether they are an employer, colleague or supervisor.
