Many employees fear the consequences of making a personal injury claim after an accident in their place of work. They should not worry; an employee cannot be dismissed simply for making a claim for personal injury.
All employers are legally obliged to have employer’s liability insurance which covers them in the case of injury or illness suffered by an employee at work. Action can be taken against companies who discriminate against employees because they are making a claim for personal injury.
Any accident that occurs at work, however small, should be reported.
Reporting an accident will provide evidence that your injury occurred at work should this be required at a later date. Your company is also legally obliged to report any industrial or more serious accidents to the health and safety executive.
Workplace Injury Claims Made In Any Industry
Most people associate workplace injury claims with industrial and warehouse environments. However, accidents at work are not limited to labour intensive occupations and can occur in any place of work including offices, restaurants and retail premises.
