If you have been hurt, injured or maimed during an accident at work you may be worried about taking things further and making a no-fault injury claim. Perhaps you are concerned that your employer may dismiss your or that your work colleagues will hold it against your for making an injury claim.
These are common concerns and it is understandable that you may wish to avoid making a fuss. However, it is vitally important to keep in mind the unassailable fact that UK law entitles victims who have been hurt during no-fault accidents to seek compensation and redress by way of making an injury claim and that in seeking legal justice you are doing nothing criminal or wrong.

Can my employer dismiss me for causing a fuss?
It would constitute unfair dismissal if an employer were to terminate your employment simply because you were making an accident claim for an incident which occurred whilst on their premises or whilst you were going about your contracted working duties.
Could a successful injury claim mean the end of the company?
It is important to remember that all companies are required by law to have appropriate insurance cover in place to cover against all staff accidents. This means that it is the insurance company that will pay the awarded sum of compensation and not your employer.
