Employers Liability

Employers in the UK have a legal duty to take reasonable steps to protect the health and safety of their employees. All workers have the right to work in places where risks to their health and safety are properly managed.


The compensation awarded, in most accident at work claims, is paid out by the employer’s liability insurance provider, and not by the employer. It is unlawful for an employer to discriminate or treat an employee differently because the employee is making a work accident claim.

There are lots of different ways in which an employee can be injured at work that could have been prevented had the correct health and safety measures been imposed. 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.
