no they cant, but they most prob try to get rid of you some other way, so you'll have to be spot on with everything you do!

if its anything like our place, no matter what the cause, they will say its your fault and try to disuade you from claiming! how did it fall? was it not hung correctly or something?

Wench is the legal brains. whoever you are employed by should have you covered and themselves by an insurance policy of some description or they shouldn't be employing people. If you are not in a union and have no legal cover you may as well go to a no win no fee solicitor. Ask Wench's advice first.

Did you see a first-aider, did you put it in the accident book?

i seen a first aider who cleaned the cut and everything was logged on the accident book yes.

the fans are normally secured by a bracket but over the weekend someone must have tried to move it to face them or something so it must have came loose. my team leader also told me that somebody reported it to there team leader on sunday. it wasnt just a normal fan there controled by remote so the electrics in them make them quite heavy.

i dont know weather to bother with the claim or not though as its just hassle and i dont want to even remotly risk losing my job

they can't sack you for claiming, but as chris_gilly said, they may try and do it another way - remember its not them paying, its their insurance so theyre not really losing anything financially

At the earliest opportunity LIKE TONIGHT you should go to a hospital walk-in centre and get them to check the wound// dressing etc. That visit will "log" your injury into an official system and the medical record can be retrieved (with your authority) should you make a personal injury claim.

You really should do that. It will help a LOT

Mill Lane, Wallasey, is open until 10pm and will likely be less busy that Arrow Park.

there are injury's that make you lose time from work and there are minor injury's that fall with in the make a claim, make a claim group. These are the same as the whip lash crowd who claim when you roll into the back of there car because you where looking at a text on your mobile.
