Accidents at work compensation claims
If you have been injured in an accident in the workplace, you may be entitled to make a claim for compensation.
Employers have a duty of care to provide a safe working environment for employees. 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.
