Accidents at work
Your employer has a responsibility to make sure you are safe at work and protected against accident or injury. Sometimes though, things go wrong. If you have suffered a mild injury where you recovered quickly, or something more severe which left you with permanent damage, our solicitors can help.
You can claim compensation regardless of whether you are full-time, part-time, temporary or self-employed, or even visiting the business at the time you got hurt.
If your employer or the company you were visiting did not provide you with a safe environment, failed to give you the proper safety equipment or training to carry out your job safely or put you at undue risk by not following health and safety procedures, you may be able to claim compensation.
Our workplace accident lawyers have recovered significant sums of money for those who have experienced financial loss through injury or illness in the workplace.
Here’s a snapshot of some of the compensation claims we regularly handle:
- Machinery accidents
- Falls at work
- Heavy lifting/manual handling
- Vehicle accidents
- Workplace slips and trips
- Burns, scars, lacerations
- Back injury
How to claim
If your accident is the fault of somebody else and happened in the last 3 years, our specialist accidents at work legal team can guide you through the process and help put you in control of the situation.
If you’ve already been offered compensation from your employer or the insurance company acting for your employer, seek independent legal advice before accepting.
It’s crucial to understand the long-term implications of your injury and any knock-on effect this will have on your finances and ability to earn in the future.
Our no win, no fee solicitors, who specialise in accident at work claims, will review your case and advise the best course of action and provide the support you need.
