We can help you to claim compensation if you have suffered injuries as a result of an accident at work.
Accidents at work can happen as a result of not being trained properly, using defective tools and equipment, having an unsafe place or system of work, or as a consequence of something a fellow worker has done.
Employers have a wide range of duties and responsibilities to ensure their employees can work safely and without the risk of injury. These duties are often set out in complex legislation which may mean you have a claim even if you do not think anyone else was responsible, or even if you think the accident was your own fault.
An employer will be required by law to have compulsory liability insurance to deal with the claim so the insurers will pay your compensation and not your employers.
We are very experienced in handling all types of claims following accidents at work.
Examples of claims we have handled include:
1. A labourer who hurt his back because he was required to lift heavy items of equipment even though his employers could have easily changed the system of work to help him.
2. An engineer who suffered broken fingers in an accident when the machinery he was working on trapped his hand.
3. A factory worker who broke his ankle when he slipped on oil which had not been cleaned up from the floor.
We can help you make a claim and because we offer a bespoke service your case will receive the personal attention of an experienced lawyer at partner level.
