You have not clarified whether your Principal Employer has submitted Accident Report to the appropriate Branch Office of the ESIC immediately after occurance of the accident. Kindly see Section 51C of ESI Act, 1948 which clarifies about accidents happened while travelling in employers' transport.
In such circumstances, the Insured Persons, if the case is admitted as that of Employment Injury, are entitled for disablement benefit as provided under said Act. However, such acceptance of accident case depends upon facts of each case.
Kindly see if such options have been examined by your factory/establishment. You can discuss the matter with Branch Manager of ESIC of your area.
With kind regards;
