Accidents at Work Solicitors
No Win No Fee Personal Injury Solicitors
Have you suffered an accident at work?
If you have been injured at work can prove that someone else (usually your employer) was at fault, you may be entitled to damages.
Your employer should have insurance to cover compensation claims.
Accident at work claims could involve:
- Defective machinery or dangerous machinery
- Slips or trips on debris or dangerous surfaces
- Injuries involving lifting or manual handling
- Exposure to harmful and dangerous substances (including asbestos and chemicals)
- Vibration induced injuries
- Repetitive strain injury
- Stress at work
Your employer has a legal responsibility to provide a safe and secure workplace, provide competent co-workers, adequate materials and equipment, a safe system of work with proper training and supervision. Even if your accident was caused by faulty machinery or equipment supplied by another company, the responsibility remains with your employer to ensure that it is safe for you to use and that you have received adequate training.
As your employer will have insurance to cover these types of compensation claims the claim will be dealt with by the insurance company and should not affect the terms of your employment.

General Damages: these are awarded for the injury sustained and for the pain and suffering and ongoing disability associated with that injury. The amount depends upon such factors as the nature and severity of the injury, the period of recovery and the outlook for the future. General damages are assessed in reference to the medical report on your condition and comparing that report to previously decided cases.
Special Damages: essentially these are your out-of-pocket expenses arising from the accident and includes such things as loss of earnings, medical expenses and travel expenses.
These time limits do not apply to children (who can proceed at any time before their 21st birthday) and people who are unable because of mental incapacity of managing their legal affairs (may differ for a defective product).
