Statistics show that less than half of employees claim for accidents at work they rightfully could have.
Part of the reason for this is that people fear upsetting their employer. Every business should have insurance so it should not cost employers directly. Also, no employer is allowed to discriminate against an accident victim.
You should also remember that if you do claim your employer is far more likely to fix the problem so you are helping your work colleagues by ensuring injuries like yours don't happen again.
