work accident - own fault

Need some advice.
Right last month i had accident at work due to my own fault. i work in a garage and work was very quite. so i had some fireworks left over from bonfire night, so i got a big rocket and turned it upside down and while i was lighting the fuse and positioning the rocket it blew up instantly.
so long story short my hand was damaged very badly, i lost 2 fingers and shattered most of my bones in my thumb.

what i would like to know is can i claim on my employers insurance even though it was all my fault and nothing to do with my employer.

Any advice or help would be appreciated.
