Accident at Work
Have you had an accident at work? Have you suffered an injury as a result? If the answers to these questions are yes, then you could be entitled to compensation. We can help you make a claim and get the compensation that you deserve.
Here at Nash & Co Solicitors, we have a friendly and experienced team of personal injury lawyers who are ready to answer any questions that you may have.
“If you’ve had an accident at work, then we want to help you. Employer’s liability insurance is compulsory because employers are responsible for the health and safety of their employees while they’re at work. 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.”
Mike Shiers, Partner
When can I claim for a workplace accident?
Your employer has responsibilities under health and safety law to keep you safe at work. If your employer fails to meet their duties under the law, you may have a claim for compensation.
The first step towards starting a claim is to get in touch with us. We can offer you a free initial discussion about the circumstances of your accident. The specific facts will allow us to advise you whether or not you have a claim that is likely to succeed.
Our specialist lawyers have years of experience handling workplace injury claims including:
- Falls from heights
- Workplace slips and trips
- Back injuries caused by manual handling
- Lacerations, burns and scarring injuries
- Defective work equipment claims
- Exposure to chemicals or other hazardous substances
- Fatal accidents
- Injuries caused by the acts of other employees
You can claim compensation for a workplace injury, regardless of your employment status. Whether you’re a full-time or part-time employee, a temporary or zero-hours worker, a self-employed contractor, or if you were just visiting a business at the time of the accident.
We can use our expert knowledge to advise you on your specific circumstances. Get in touch with our specialist workplace accident lawyers for free, no-obligation advice.
I’m worried about being off work and not getting paid, can you help me with this?
The worry of not being able to pay bills can be just as worrying as the effects of your injury. We understand your concerns and we make it a priority to try and help you.
In some cases, we can request an early interim payment. This can help to reduce any financial worries caused by the accident. Interim payments can also be used to pay for private surgery or treatment. This will help you to get you back to work again.
An interim payment is made before the conclusion of your claim. This can be particularly helpful if you have suffered serious injuries as these cases can take many years to reach a final conclusion.
How much does it cost to make a claim?
We take on most claims on a no-win-no-fee arrangement. We won’t ask you to make any upfront costs and you won’t pay a penny out of your own pocket.
In our free initial consultation, we can explain in more detail how your claim could be funded and answer any questions that you may still have.
