- Provide safe and suitable working systems
- Manage business activities to minimise risks to your health and safety
- You are provided with suitable (PPE)
- Risk assessments are carried out before you carry out tasks

How much compensation can I claim?
Every work related injury claim is different, each with its own set of legal challenges so it is difficult for us to provide you with an exact valuation of your office accident on the phone, especially if your accident has led to you being unable to work as a result.
The amount you can claim will depend on several factors including the severity of your injuries, whether you have been unable to work as a result, your long-term work prospects and if you require any ongoing care or rehabilitation.
All successful plumber injury at work in Lincolnshire claims may include compensation for the following:
- Compensation for your pain and suffering caused by your injuries
- Compensation for any lost earnings, past, present and future as a result of the accident
- The cost associated with healthcare and rehabilitation as a result of your injuries
Depending on the severity of your injuries and your current and future financial losses, plumbing related claims can range in value from £25,000 to several hundred thousand pounds and in cases where someone has suffered life changing injuries, they can be valued in the millions.

How much does it cost to claim?
We do not charge our clients any fees to get a new claim up and running.
We use “Conditional Fee Agreements” to fund all of our claims. These agreements are also commonly referred to as “No Win No Fee Agreements” or “CFA’s”.
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.
