Where do you stand with your employer?
There may be certain processes that you need to go through with your employer. You’ll need to report the accident, of course, and there should be systems in place to allow you to do this. There should be an accident book, for example, where you can record the finer details of what happened.
Many people are understandably worried that making a claim for compensation could cause them to lose their jobs, but this is something that you needn’t worry about. It would be unlawful for an employer to terminate a contract of employment because a claim was made against them.
