If you were injured whilst at work and it was not your fault, you could be entitled to compensation. Your accident might have been caused by faulty equipment, a colleague's negligence, improper training, lifting heavy items or for another reason.
There are strict duties on employers to take reasonable care for their workers' safety, to conform to Health & Safety Regulations and to provide suitable training for the roles their employees will be carrying out.
Many people are afraid to make a claim against their employer, fearing it could affect their position at work. However, all employers are required by law to have insurance and it will be their insurance company that deals with the claim. It should not affect your employer at all. Accidents are common in workplaces so insurance companies are used to dealing with them.
