If you have had an accident at work, there is good chance it wasn’t your fault. Injuries following an accident at work can have all sorts of consequences. Not only can you be left in pain, but also you may have to have considerable time off work, which could have financial repercussions. In addition, even minor injuries can have unforeseen effects, sometimes occurring years later, resulting in you enduring further pain and suffering or hindering the way you live your life.
This is why you should always claim work accident compensation if you have suffered an accident around the workplace that was the fault of somebody else, whether another employee or because there was insufficient training and risk assessments that resulted in you suffering the accident. Unfortunately, many people don’t make a claim for work accident compensation following an accident at work because they think it could affect their relationship with their employer or could cause financial hardship to the company. However, this is not the case. Not only is it mandatory that all employers are insured for accidents at work, but also it is against the law for any employer to hold a claim for work accident compensation against an employee.
