Those who have suffered an accident at work may be apprehensive, particularly when they have to instigate legal action against their employer to achieve compensation. Regardless of the length of your employment, it is unlawful to terminate your employment if the sole reasoning for doing so is due to you instigating a personal injury* claim against your employer.
Another fear is the financial burden your personal injury* claim may have on your employer and subsequently, the future of your employment. By law, however, just like insuring your car, your employer must also possess an insurance policy to cover the safety of their employees whilst at work. Therefore, if you have had an accident at work and wish to claim compensation, the insurance company will in all likelihood cover the cost that is to be made payable to you.
