Can my employers legally dismiss me if I make a claim following an accident at work?

No. If your accident occurred at your workplace your employer is not legally justified to dismiss you if you make a claim for compensation. If he does so you may well be able to claim for unfair dismissal.
It is important that you remember that employers are legally bound to take out insurance specifically to cover accidents at work.

Any compensation that you are awarded will be paid for from that insurance and will not have to be paid for by your employer(s).
