Will I Lose my Job for making an Accident at Work Claim?

What are your rights? Legally, you cannot lose your job for pursuing a claim for an Accident at Work. If you are dismissed because of pursuing a claim, then you will have a very strong case against your employer for unfair dismissal.

If your employer decides to try and make your working life difficult after a claim and you are forced to resign, then similarly you will have a very strong case against your employer for constructive dismissal.

Can I Make a Claim? If you are injured in an Accident at Work which occurred due to the negligence of your employer or in the course of your work you can make a claim for compensation against your employer for the injuries sustained.

There can be times when people are reluctant to make a Personal Injury Claim after an Accident at Work because they are scared it might lead to them losing their job or could lead to a bad relationship with their employer.

In our experience it is extremely rare for an employer to try to make life difficult for an employee after pursuing a claim for an Accident at Work. These claims are dealt with by an Insurance Company on behalf of an employer and not the employer directly so you do not need to worry about your employer being out of pocket as a result of an Accident at Work Claim.
