    Broadland accident at work

    If you have sustained injuries in a Broadland accident at work, you may be wondering whether you can be dismissed for bringing a personal injury claim against your employer. The answer to this common question is no, your employer cannot sack you for pursuing a claim.

    Your employer’s duty of care

    Under health and safety legislation, your employer has a duty to ensure your safety while you are at work. If they fail to carry out their duty of care, you will have a legal entitlement to make a claim for a Broadland accident at work that you suffered.

    Legally, your employer cannot sack you simply because you have made, or are considering making, a claim. If your employer attempts to do so, you may be able to make a separate claim for unfair dismissal. Similarly, if your employer treats you unfairly and you feel you have no other choice but to leave your job, you may have a claim for constructive dismissal.

    Receiving compensation for your Broadland accident at work

    All employers are legally required to purchase an insurance policy to cover them in the case of accident at work claims. This means that your employer will not have to pay out for your claim. Usually, the insurance company will deal with the claims process on behalf of your employer, so your claim should not damage your relationship with your employer.

    Making a claim against a company that is no longer trading

    If your employer is no longer trading, you will still be able to make a Broadland accident at work claim. If the company no longer features on the Companies House register, you will be able to request the restoration of the company. This, in turn, will enable you to make your compensation claim.
