Accidents at work

Accidents in the work place are common. If you are unfortunate enough to have an accident at work, you may be able to make a personal injury claim for compensation.

Common accidents at work are:

  • Defective or dangerous machinery
  • Slips or trip involving debris or dangerous services
  • Injuries from lifting or manual handling
  • Injuries in the construction industry
  • Exposure to harmful and dangerous substances
  • Falls from a height at work
  • Farm accidents
  • Personal protective equipment incident

Duty of care

An employer has a duty of care to ensure that you are safe whilst at work. There are various health and safety regulations that your employer should adhere to. If your employer breaches these, and you are injured as a result of this breach you may be entitled to claim compensation.

Our Personal Injury solicitors are able to offer a no win, no fee agreement which means just that. If you lose the case, you don’t pay anything.

In some instances, you may have the benefit of legal cover through your house insurance or other financial product or via your Trade Union which means that we will be able to act on your behalf with the benefit of that policy, again, at no extra cost to you.
