What am I eligible to claim for?
You’re eligible to claim for loss of earnings, medical expenses, injuries sustained and long term loss of enjoyment. However, your eligibility depends on meeting the following criteria
- You must have sustained an injury in the accident at work
- Your injury must be as a result of negligence by your employer
- The accident has to have taken place in the last 3 years (although minors can claim from three years after their 18th birthday)
Is my employer responsible for my accident at work?
Even if your accident was caused by a colleague’s actions or negligence, your employer is ultimately responsible for keeping you from harm in the workplace. That shouldn’t put you off from making a compensation claim for an accident at work. Every employer, by law, has to have employers’ liability insurance, to make sure they can pay compensation for any accidents at work that result in illness or injury, without it affecting the firm financially.
