    Making workplace accident claims in Sutton Coldfield

    Employers and business owners are responsible for the safety of their employees at the workplace. If your employer fails to adhere to the health and safety guidelines that are in place to safeguard employees from accidents and you are injured whilst performing your work duties, you may be entitled to make a compensation claim.

    Some of the duties of an employer towards employees include:

    • Providing a safe working environment
    • Providing proper training for technical tasks
    • Providing suitable protective clothing and other gear where applicable
    • Maintaining tools, equipment and machinery in good working order

    If a business owner or employer fails to observe these responsibilities and an employee is injured in an accident at work, then an accident at work claim could be made.

    All employees, including temporary and casual employees, have the right to make a work injury claim. You could also make a claim if your workplace injury was caused by another member of staff.

    Will you be sacked if you make an accident at work claim?

    Often, employees are reluctant to make accident at work claims because they are afraid that they could be dismissed from work .

    However, it is important to remember that there are laws protecting employees from unfair dismissal and making a claim does not constitute reasonable grounds for dismissal. It is also important to note that the law requires all employers and business owners to take out an employers’ liability insurance policy to cover the employer  in the event that an employee is injured at work.

    This means that, when an employee makes a claim and is awarded compensation, it is the insurance company and not the employer that will pay the compensation.
