“The figures are staggering: each year some 29 million work days are lost with nearly 5 million of those resulting from around 250,000 injuries. Sadly, recent figures also show that the number of fatal injuries remains high at a level approaching 200 deaths.”

Compensation for workplace accidents
If you’ve been injured at work, it can be a traumatic and stressful event. This can often be compounded by a loss of earnings if you’re left unable to return to work afterwards. Whether your accident was a result of faulty equipment, negligence, poor health and safety procedures, or ineffective personal protective equipment, we’re on hand to help handle your workplace accident claim.
We can deal with a number of different workplace injuries, including:
- Burns, lacerations and cuts
- Broken bones
- Loss of limbs and fingers
- Soft tissue damage
- Serious injuries
You can claim compensation for a work accident injury, regardless of your employment status. Whether you’re a full-time or part-time employee, a temporary worker, a self-employed contractor or if you were just visiting a business at the time of the accident, you can make an accident at work claim.
How we can help you
Last year more than a million people suffered from an illness or injury they believed to have been caused or made worse by their current or past employment. If you have been injured, you may be able to make a claim for compensation.
Employers are required by law to have valid Employers’ Liability insurance cover to protect people from workplace accidents and most claims are brought against the insurance company, not the employer. Our job is to provide clear understanding and advice and to help you take fast legal action to recover.
To start the accident at work claim process, we will need to know some important details such as where, when, and how the accident happened. Details of the injuries you sustained are also needed.
If you’ve received any medical treatment, or there were witnesses to the accident, we’ll ask for these details. We’ll also need copies of any photos that were taken relating to the accident.
Our team of personal injury lawyers has a wealth of experience in dealing with workplace accidents and injury claims. They will work with you to learn more about your workplace accident and to get a good measure of how the injury has impacted on you.
In some cases, we can request an interim payment for you which can help to reduce financial worries caused by the accident. It can also be used to pay for private treatment. An interim payment is made before the conclusion of your claim. This can be particularly helpful if you have suffered from serious injuries as these cases can take many years before they reach a final conclusion.
