    Accident at work claims in Swale


    Employees working in higher-risk environments such as in manufacturing plants, construction sites, farms, for example, wear protective clothing and other safety gear. This ensures that they are protected from risk.

    Your employer is responsible for such protective measures, because they are obliged to ensure your safety as an employee. They are required to adhere to strict safety guidelines to protect employees from injury.

    If your employer fails to observe the necessary guidelines and you sustain an injury or develop a medical condition while performing your work duties, you may be entitled to make accident at work claims in Swale.

    Who will pay the compensation?

    A significant number of workplace injuries are reported every year and Accident Advice Helpline has helped many accident victims to get compensation for their accident at work claims in Swale. Often, people wonder who actually pays this compensation, and worry that it might come out of their employer’s funds.

    To ensure that employees who get injured while performing their work duties are able to claim compensation, the law requires employers and business owners to take out an employers’ liability insurance policy.

    The purpose of this insurance is to cover the employer from liability in case an employee is awarded compensation for an accident at work claim. This insurance policy means that the insurance company will pay the compensation rather than the actual employer.
