Accidents At Work

Home / Accidents At Work

Because of how dependent most people are on their income, accidents at work can be very traumatic. It's likely you've had to take time off work or maybe even leave your job altogether. In some cases, your loss of earning may have left you unable to pay the bills or support your family.

You don't deserve to feel anxious about your health, job or finances following an accident at work – we're here to help you make it right.

All employers have a legal responsibility to make sure you're safe at work. This includes giving you the proper training and safety equipment for you to be able to carry out your role. If your employer has failed in their duty of care to you and you've been injured, then we can help you. We give free, impartial advice about making a compensation claim – this means you're under no rush or pressure to start a claim with us when you call.

But if you do choose to go ahead, we'll guide you through the first steps of your claim and put you forward to one of our experienced specialist solicitors.

Have you suffered a serious injury at work?

Unfortunately, work accidents can cause serious injuries. This is because most working environments have a high potential for accidents when they're not maintained, or if staff haven't been given the proper training.

You may not think you've suffered a serious injury, but we're often contacted by people who have suffered serious injuries without realising.

If you answer yes to any of the below, then it's likely you've suffered a serious injury:

In some cases, we may be able to arrange an 'interim payment'. This means you'll receive some of your compensation before the final settlement to cover your immediate needs.

Are you thinking of contacting us on behalf of a loved one?

How much could you claim?

Your compensation amount is unique to your accident and claim. This is because your claim is unique. And when you make a claim with us, your solicitor considers the full impact of your accident so that we can make sure you're properly covered.

Your solicitor will take the following into consideration, and more:

Who pays your compensation?

Some people worry about the cost of their work accident claim on their employer.
Please don't worry. All employers are required by law to take out employers' liability insurance. And your compensation will be paid by their insurance – so you don't need to worry about your claim leaving your employer with a bill they can't afford.

You're protected at work by law

All employers have a 'duty of care' towards their employees – they're required by law to protect you. Your employer must take steps to make sure your working environment is safe for you and your colleagues to work in.

If an employer doesn't follow the general health and safety regulations, such as The Health and Safety at Work Act 1974, then they've put you at risk and are responsible for your accident.

This also includes any regulations that are specific to your working environment, such as The Work at Height Regulations 2005 act or 'Six-Pack' Regulations 1992 for roles based in a factory.

There are also laws in place to make it illegal for your employer to fire you or treat you differently because you're making a claim. If they did fire you, this would be considered 'unfair dismissal', and you could take further legal action.
