    "If you've been injured through no fault of your own you could be entitled to compensation. If you're unsure if you could claim, I recommend you call Accident Advice Helpline."

    Esther Rantzen

    Is there actually a UK work injury compensation act?

    If you are injured in an accident at work, your employer could be held liable. That’s because they have a responsibility to ensure the safety of their employees whilst at work, so if you’re injured, you could find yourself eligible to claim compensation. There isn’t a UK work injury compensation act in place to protect workers in the UK, but anybody who has been injured in an accident at work is entitled to make a personal injury claim if they feel more could have been done to prevent their accident from happening.

    Employer negligence is the main cause of accidents at work and there really are no excuses for it – you could make a claim for compensation with Accident Advice Helpline and be compensated for your pain, suffering and loss of earnings.

    Why is there no UK work injury compensation act?

    There’s no need for a UK work injury compensation act as all employees in the UK are entitled to compensation if employer negligence has occurred. But what counts as employer negligence? This could include:

    • Failing to train staff properly
    • Failing to maintain equipment, machinery and tools to a safe standard
    • Being understaffed, causing stress and not allowing staff regular breaks
    • Not carrying out risk assessments
    • Not repairing or replacing faulty machinery or equipment after staff have reported it

    These are just a few examples of what could be classed as employer negligence, and if your employer has been negligent, Accident Advice Helpline could help you make a 100% no-win, no-fee* claim for personal injury compensation.

    Whether you’re employed in retail, an office job or even on a construction site, the rules are the same – you can make a claim for personal injury compensation if your employer is negligent and you are injured at work as a result.
