Each year, thousands of people are injured at work, but only a few ever make a workplace injury claim against their employer. If you have had an accident at work within the last 3 years then you may be entitled to compensation.
By law, you are entitled to seek redress against anyone who has caused you harm, so you should not fear upsetting your employer by making a claim against them. Ultimately, any workplace injury compensation claim will be covered by your employer’s insurance company, who they are required to have directly for events where they need to pay compensation.

Accidents in the workplace are a common occurrence. Thousands of workplace injury claims are enforced against employers every year. Yet thousands more go unenforced.
