By law, employers are responsible for the health and safety of their employees while at work or carrying out work related duties, on or off site.
Employers Liability Insurance is insurance that most employers are required to hold – by law. It covers the employer for personal injury claims if someone has an accident at work or while carrying out work related duties – in other words, if someone is hurt on the job. So, if within the past three years, you had an accident at work which required medical attention and the accident was not your fault, or you have sustained other damage to your health due to your work, you may be wondering how to claim for compensation.
I was hurt on the job. Why should I claim compensation?
The compensation to which you may be entitled usually covers pain and suffering as well as loss of earnings due to your injuries. It may also cover any extra expenses incurred on getting specialist medical treatment to get you back to health, for example physiotherapy sessions. The compensation cannot take away the injury but it can help you cope with the aftermath.
