Accident at Work Compensation Claims
Workplace injuries are all too common and every year thousands of people are hurt in accidents at work.
If you’ve suffered an injury at work through no fault of your own, speak to one of our specialist personal injury solicitors for advice on making a compensation claim.
The responsibility of your employer
Whilst all jobs carry a degree of risk, health and safety regulations are designed to keep you safe from injury whilst in the workplace. Your employer is responsible for enforcing these regulations and you have the right to expect protection against the risks you face.
Illness and injuries at work can be caused by a range of problems, from lack of training and faulty equipment to hazardous chemicals and lifting and machinery accidents.
Client story | Head + brain injury following accident at work
Of course, it’s only natural to worry that your long-term employment prospects will be affected if you make a work injury compensation claim, but this really shouldn’t be the case.
By law, there should be insurance against staff accidents, meaning that an insurance company will pay your accident compensation and our fees if you’re successful in your claim.
