We specialise in accident at work claims
If you have been injured in an accident at work, through no fault of your own, then you may be entitled to claim against your employer for negligence.
You may have been injured as a result of health and safety procedures not being followed correctly or you may not have been given sufficient training to carry out your job safely. Your workplace accident may have even made an existing injury or condition worse.
Your employer has a legal duty to provide you with a safe working environment and a responsibility to:
- Provide you with suitable personal protective equipment (PPE)
- Undertake risk assessments before you carry out tasks
- Provide you with sufficient training to enable you to do your job safely, which means training you on how to use machinery and carry out manual handling tasks correctly
- Manage business activities to minimise risks to your health and safety
- Provide safe working systems
Whatever your accident circumstances, we recommend that you contact us as soon as possible as there are strict time limits in place that may prevent you from claiming.
Call us today on 01507 609027.

How long do I have to make my work accident claim?
The law in England & Wales states that there is a 3 year period from the date of an accident in which you are able to make a claim. This claim period may also start from the date you were diagnosed with a work related condition, or from the date you first linked your symptoms with your work.
As every accident at work claim is different, we recommend you seek legal advice as soon as possible, to avoid your claim falling outside of this claim period.
We can help you find out if your particular accident circumstances fall within this claim period so call us today and speak with one of our friendly and expert solicitors.
How much compensation can I expect for my accident at work claim?
The amount of financial compensation that you can expect to receive for your injuries depends on a number of factors, including the severity of your injuries, the type of accident you were involved in and how long it may take you to recover from your injuries.
The value of compensation claims are also dependent on whether you have suffered any financial loss as a result of your accident. For example, you may be unable to work and earn money or you may be required to make changes to your home to help cope with your rehabilitation and recovery.
All of these factors will be considered by our experts in any claim for compensation.

How much does it cost to make a claim?
We do not require our clients to pay us any upfront costs when starting a new work related claim for compensation.
If we believe your claim has good prospects of success, we will fund your claim using a “Conditional Fee Agreement”, which is commonly referred to as a “No Win No Fee” Agreement.
The nature of these agreements means that law firms take all the financial risk and not the client. If a claim fails, the law firm is not paid and the client does not have to pay any solicitor’s fees for their time. For taking this risk, it is common for law firms to agree with a client that they will be paid a % of the client’s compensation award at the end of a successful claim.
Our fees are mostly paid by the insurers of the negligent party.
