Compensation for work and industrial injuries

If you have been injured in an accident at work, you may be able to claim compensation. Every employer owes a duty of care to their employees, which means they must provide a safe working environment and take reasonable care to prevent accidents.

Accidents can range from minor trips, causing things like sprains to life-changing injuries, such as head injuries, brain damage or spinal injuries. In all cases, hindering your ability to work will have an impact on your life.

If you are unable to work you might have issues paying your bills or your mortgage. You could also face expenses as a result of your injury, such as paying for your care, physiotherapy or rehabilitation.

Workplace accident compensation claims

All employers are required by law to have employers’ liability insurance, so their insurance company will normally pay any compensation due.

To make an accident at work claim, you will need to prove that your employer was at fault for your injuries. Even if you think that the accident was your fault, you may not have had proper training or instructions and your employer may still be at fault.
