    Fall at work claim


    Fall at work claim

    Have I got a fall at work claim?

    If you have had an injury in the workplace, and this was caused through no fault of your own, you may be entitled to make a fall at work claim for compensation.

    Employer’s responsibilities for a fall at work claim

    An employer has legal responsibilities towards you as an employee:

    • They have to protect the health and safety of all employees and anyone else affected by the work.
    • Most employers have to have employers’ liability insurance with minimum cover of £5,000,000.

    Employers liability insurance and a fall at work claim

    Most employers have employers’ liability insurance. There are a few exceptions such as government bodies, health authorities, transport executives etc., but although they are exempt from the legal requirement to have employers’ liability insurance, they are not exempt from paying compensation for a fall at work claim, it just has to come from their own funds.

    What you need to do in the event of an accident

    The best thing you could do, if you wish to make a fall at work claim, is contact Accident Advice Helpline.

    The party responsible for paying your compensation will either be an insurance company, local authority, health trust or similar organisation. Whichever it is, it will be a large organisation that employs their own legal team whose job it is to make sure as little compensation as possible is paid out.
