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.

What compensation will I receive?

By pursuing a claim for compensation with Coles Miller Claims UK, we will help you to recover:

Compensation for personal injuries

Loss of income, both past and future

Expenses incurred as a result of the accident (e.g. medication, travel expenses etc.)

Here at Coles Miller we have a specialised team who will ensure that you receive compensation which reflects your injuries and financial losses incurred as a result of the accident. We recognise the financial difficulties that you may face following an accident at work, and wherever possible, we will obtain interim payments to help you until you are fit enough to return to work.

What if I cannot return to the same employment due to my injuries?
In some cases because of the injuries you suffer, you may not be able to return to your former job. In those circumstances, our specialist team of solicitors will obtain funding for retraining and will help in developing your skills in other areas, so that you are better equipped to begin a new career.
What will happen with my job if I sue my employer?
As your employer will have insurance to cover these types of compensation claims the claim will be dealt with by the insurance company and not your direct employer and should therefore not affect the terms of your employment.

If a complication should ever arise, we have a team of specialist employment lawyers who can advise you on any employment issues.
How much is my claim worth?
In most cases the amount of damages you receive will be made up of two elements:

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.
How much will it cost me to make a claim?

Coles Miller Solicitors offer a No Win No Fee agreement so if your claim is unsuccessful, it costs you nothing.

  • If you win, you may have to pay your solicitor a limited success fee/capped at 25% of the compensation for general damages and past losses.
  • If you lose, you pay us and the other side nothing as long as you have been honest.
What Is No Win No Fee?
A ‘No Win, No Fee’ agreement, which can also be known as a conditional fee agreement, gives you security and peace of mind when making a personal injury claim.
How Long Do I Have to Make a Claim?
Under English law, in most cases that time limit is 3 years from the date of the accident giving rise to your injury or the date of knowledge (if later) of the injured person.

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).
