Making a Hertford accident at work claim with Accident Advice Helpline
All employers in the UK are legally supposed to protect the health and safety of their employees while they are at work, and the majority of them do.

Most employers are insured, or a government department
Victims are sometimes concerned about the effect a claim will have on their employer, but generally claims are settled by one of two means, either:
- You are employed by a government department, a government agency or some other publically funded concern, in which case they are exempt from the need for insurance. So if you claim is against the police for instance, or maybe the NHS, you claim will be settled from their normal funding.
- If your are employed by one of most other companies, they legally should have employers liability insurance, and it is this that settles the claims. They may suffer an increased premium at renewal if a claim has been made against them, but your employer will not actually have to pay the compensation you are due out of company funds.
These days, whatever type of insurance you buy has third part cover built into it to cover you in the event of a personal injury claim being made against you. But the insurance companies do not give this cover out of the goodness of their hearts, we are all charged for it as part of our premiums, and should never shy away from making a claim against it – just think how many hundreds of thousands of policies they sell every year that no claims are ever made against.
