Industrial accident compensation and job security

We've been helping people claim industrial accident compensation for over 20 years, so we know from experience that some people are worried about their job security - getting sacked or being treated differently, after making a claim.

It's important to remember that it's illegal for an employer to dismiss an employee for claiming industrial accident compensation, and doing so would automatically amount to 'unfair dismissal' under the Employment Rights Act 1996. 

What's more, if your claim is successful, your industrial accident compensation is paid by your employer's insurance company. This means there's no risk of your claim directly affecting your company's financial position.

Types of industrial accident

Industrial accident claims are simply personal injury claims relating to injuries sustained in an industrial working environment. Industrial working environments such as construction sites, warehouses and factories are traditionally 'higher-risk' than other workplaces, and experience higher accident rates.

Why claim industrial accident compensation

Claiming industrial accident compensation can:

  1. Compensate you for the pain and inconvenience caused
  2. Cover the costs of any medical treatment needed after the accident
  3. Cover any lost wages as a result of time taken off work to recover
  4. Highlight unsafe working practices or hazards in the workplace, meaning they can be put right making the workplace safer for everyone.

At Industrial Accident Helpline, we treat all your personal information as confidential, and never pass your details onto anyone else unless you say we can.

Brian Collins, Swansea, was awarded £1,500

My employer changed the machines at work immediately after my accident, too, and my claim didn’t cause any problem for me at work. I’d definitely recommend National Accident Helpline – everything went smoothly from the initial call to the settlement.


Jack Davies, Norfolk, was awarded £1600

I’m glad I made the claim – hopefully it’s changed the company’s procedures to make it a safer working environment. I wouldn’t have claimed without No Win No Fee because I simply wouldn’t have had the finances to pay up front.
