Accident at work compensation claim specialists

If you or someone you know has suffered an accident at work or had a work injury, then we can help you obtain work accident personal injury compensation for the accident or illness caused by your employment. We are specialist work accident claims solicitors.

You may be able to make an accident at work injury claim for an injury at work if you can prove it was someone else’s fault. There are many rules and regulations that your employer must comply with to ensure that you are safe whilst at work. Your employer has a duty to provide you with a safe place of work, a safe way of working, safe and suitable equipment to work with and safe and competent colleagues to work with. If they do not, and you suffer a work accident injury as a result then you may be entitled to bring a personal injury compensation claim.


As expert work accident injury lawyers we are experienced in dealing with all sorts of accident at work claims as a result of employers failing to comply with their duties leading to workers being injured on the job. 

Common accident at work claims

Types of accident at work include:

  • Dangerous machinery at work
    Employers are expected to provide adequate guards for dangerous parts of machinery and thorough training to all technicians using the machinery
     
  • Exposing employees to harmful chemicals
    Those working with harmful chemicals should be sent on the proper training courses and be provided with appropriate personal protection equipment
     
  • Workplace manual handling compensation claims
    Employers have a duty to their employees to make sure that they have appropriate training in how to handle and lift heavy objects and failure to do so can cause serious back injuries
     
  • Trips and slips as a result of spillages or objects left on the floor
    In a busy work environment clearing up spillages and moving objects out of pathways isn't always at the top of anyone's priority list however if not cleared up serious injuries can occur
     
  • Constructions site accident claims
    Injuries caused by inadequate health and safety precautions, For example, falls from height at work and falling from ladders on scaffolding can cause serious head and spinal injuries
     
  • PPE – personal protective equipment
    Personal protective equipment such as safety helmets, gloves, eye protection, high-visibility clothing, safety footwear and safety harnesses. These are required to be worn at all times whilst working in certain work environments, and employers have duties to make sure their employees are properly protected against health or safety risks
     
  • Farm accident compensation claims
    Farms are idyllic places to work but without proper safety measure the chances for serious injury caused by moving vehicles, overturning tractors, farm structures falling over and getting entangled in machinery are increased.

Unfortunately, the list is endless.

Thank you again for everything, I am so happy that I can finally look towards the future and start drawing a line under the accident and putting it in the past where it belongs...I don't think I've felt this happy in ages, it's like a massive weight has been lifted from my shoulders just knowing that it's all done.
