If you have been involved in an accident at work, you may be hesitant in wanting to make a claim against your employer for fear of victimisation after the accident. However, you should bear in mind that all employers are required by law to have Employers Liability Insurance in place – this provides financial protection for both the employer and the employee. You are well within your legal rights to make a claim for your injuries against this policy.
Worried About Making A Claim?
If you are worried about making a claim for an accident suffered at work, don't be. Employers Liability Insurance, is there to ensure that employers are able to meet the costs of compensation and legal fees for employees who are injured or made ill at work through the negligence of the employer. Employees that are injured in accidents at work due to employer's negligence can seek compensation even if the business goes into liquidation or receivership, as the protection provided by liability insurance typically outlives the business which it covers – claims for asbestos-related illnesses are a good example of this.
