If you’ve suffered an injury at work that was not your fault, you can make a claim for No Win No Fee compensation.

All employers have a responsibility to protect their employees and contractors from accidents and injuries. A ‘workplace’ is not limited simply to the main factory, site, building or office where you work; it also covers anywhere that is used in connection with your work.

Unfortunately common injuries at work are a result of:

  • Defective machinery or work equipment
  • Insufficient training at work
  • The negligence of other employees
  • Unsafe working practices
  • Slipping on spillages or wet flooring
  • Tripping over objects left lying around or on defective surfaces
  • Falling from a height or objects falling on you
  • Lifting or carrying heavy items
  • Inadequate personal protective equipment (often referred to as PPE), or worse not providing any personal protective equipment at all – such as gloves, goggles, protective footwear or boots, ear defenders, helmets, masks, overalls, high visibility clothing, harnesses, etc

Unsure about claiming after an injury at work?

We understand that you might be worried about claiming compensation against their employer following an accident at work.

All employers are required by law to have Employers Liability Insurance.  Your claim will be made against this insurance policy and not directly against your employer.  It would also be an offence for your employer to discriminate against you because of your claim for compensation following an injury.

We also appreciate that if you’ve suffered an injury at work, it may mean that you have to have time off work to recover. You may lose wages and this can put financial pressure on you and your family. As well as securing general compensation for you, we ensure that you are put back in the same financial position you would have been had you not had the accident. This would include the wages that you would have earned, if you have not been able to work because of your injury, and any financial expenses you have had to pay. Where it is appropriate we can also arrange private medical treatment, in order to speed up you recovery.

What should you do now?

  • Ensure that you seek medical attention to get your injuries treated
  • Report the accident to your employer and record it in the accident book
  • If there are any witnesses ask them for their telephone number and address so that they can help support your claim
  • Where possible take clear photographs of the cause of your injuries
  • Contact our team of expert work accident lawyers now for free advice about what to do next.
