Accident at Work

According to the Health and Safety Executive, approximately 150,000 injuries are reported every year as the result of an accident at work and an estimated two million people suffer from poor health that is caused or aggravated by time spent at work.

All employers have a legal responsibility for the health and safety of their employees, avoiding accidents at work. This includes ensuring plant and machinery are safe, that dangerous substances are stored and used safely, that adequate welfare facilities are provided and that workers receive proper information, training and supervision.

If an employer does not ensure that work areas are safe and that environmental factors are upheld to an acceptable standard, they can be held responsible for any injury or illness that results from their negligence. Accidents at work can include slips and falls, injuries caused by improper use of machinery and damage suffered as the result of inadequate safety precautions.

Accidents at work aren’t the only way to become unwell in your workplace. Your employer could also be held liable if you suffer from occupational diseases, such as asbestosis, lead poisoning and repetitive strain injury.

Our team of personal injury claims specialists are very experienced at handling claims involving accidents at work and we will treat you in a friendly and professional matter. We understand that you may not know what your options are and that your injuries may be difficult for you to talk about.

Accidents at work are unfortunately common, with 609,000 workers reporting that they had been injured between 2016 and 2017, according to the Health and Safety Executive. In many cases, these accidents can be devastating. This is why we want to help you.

As work environments can be so varied, there is no one specific type of injury you could sustain. There are many types of accidents at work you could have suffered, including:

Falls from height
Back injury
Head injury
Slips, trips or falls
Muscle strain
Being hit by a falling object
Road traffic crash or collision
Toxic fume inhalation
Repetitive strain injury

If you have had an accident at work in the last three years that was the fault of another person or an organisation, and you suffered an injury as a result, then you could have a potential claim.

It is possible that you will need to provide both physical evidence and witness statements to support your case when bringing a claim. It is therefore important that you begin the process as soon as possible – before evidence is lost and memories fade.

You may not be sure you have enough grounds to pursue a claim, but speaking to one of our experts will help clarify whether you have a strong case.

The amount of compensation you can claim will depend on the specific injury sustained, but our previous successes could give you an idea of what you could claim for.

One of our clients suffered serious burns while moving hot dough on his own when he should have had help from a colleague. He approached us for help and we were able to secure him £9,000 in compensation for his injuries.

We also helped a client who had been involved in a road traffic collision while in a work vehicle. He was being driven by a colleague who misjudged an overtake and caused an accident. We helped him obtain £6,000 in compensation.

When you’re looking to make a claim following an accident at work, it is typically best to start the process as soon as possible. This way, you’ll be able to remember all the details of the incident, which could help to strengthen your case.

We know these types of incidents can affect your life years after happening, so we want to make it possible for you to obtain justice when you realise how seriously it has affected you. This is why it could still be possible to make a claim up to three years after your accident at work occurred.

When you’re looking for a solicitor to help you, we know you have a lot of choice.
