Here’s some frequently asked questions about accidents at work, answered:
- Can I lose my job by making a claim?
You can, but it’s illegal for your employer to dismiss you because you made a claim. This is classed as unfair dismissal, and it is grounds for an employment tribunal. So, the law protects you, and it also protects you from unfair treatment in relation to making a claim.
- How will you prove that I was not at fault for my accident at work?
This is a great question. Quite simply, your solicitor will use past cases to build a strong case for you, and use medical evidence and health and safety records to show that your employer was at fault for your accident.
- Will my claim be against my employer?
Your claim will be against your employer, but it will be managed by your employer’s insurance company. Their insurers are the people who will pay your compensation.
- My employer is no longer in business. Can I still make a claim?
So long as your accident happened within the last 3 years, and your employer had employer’s liability insurance, you can still make a claim. As with the question above, your claim will still be against your employer, but the insurance company will manage it.
