- Falling objects
- Non-adherence to Health and Safety regulations
- Insufficient training
- Assault at work
- Forklift or crane accidents
- Industrial injuries such as vibration white finger
As you see, there are several kinds of workplace accidents that can cause you to sustain an injury. Whether your injury is a burn or scald injury, spinal injury, head injury, brain injury, loss of sight, fracture or break, amputation or even paralysis, you can rest assured that Accident Advice Helpline can help you to make a claim for the compensation that’s rightfully yours.
Will I lose my job?
Many injury victims worry that they will lose their job if they make a claim against their employer. Fortunately, this isn’t something that you need to worry about. Employers are not permitted to fire employees who are injured at work and subsequently make a claim against the company. All businesses in the UK are required to purchase insurance in order to protect them in the event that an employee or customer is injured whilst on their premises. Therefore, it’s your employer’s insurer who will be responsible for paying you compensation if your claim is successful, rather than your employer directly.
