Work Injury Claims
Accidents can happen in any workplace, from an office to a factory floor or a building site. Workers can also develop an illness or disease after unknowingly handling toxic materials in their workplace. If your employer doesn't provide the proper training or protective equipment and you suffer an accident or develop an illness or disease as a result, you may be able to make a work injury compensation claim.
Some people are reluctant to start a work injury claim because they think that will put their job at risk, but your employer is legally obliged to provide an environment that is safe to work in and reduces the risk of accidents. Most good employers do just that. Those who don’t are breaking the law by endangering your health and safety. All employers must have accident insurance in place, so if you are successful, your compensation claim will be paid by your employer's insurers, not by the company itself.
It’s also worth remembering that even if your injury was due to a co-worker or someone from another company, your employer may still be liable and if you are off work as a result of the injury, you will also be able to claim compensation for loss of earnings. Suffering an accident or injury at work can have an impact on you and your family’s finances for life, so if you’ve suffered an injury which should have been prevented by your employer, you have every right to make a work injury claim for compensation.
