Work accidents are often the result of poor health and safety practices. If so, you are likely to be entitled to compensation from your employer.
It will be a concern for you to make a personal injury claim against your employer. However, they are not allowed to treat you differently as a result of your claim. You cannot be demoted, sacked or over-looked for promotion because you are making a work accident claim.
In reality, most compensation claims for accidents at work are simply dealt with by your employer’s insurance company without any consequences for how you are treated. If you do find that you are being victimised, you should take legal advice.
