If you have suffered injury at work, we can help you claim compensation. You should not have to suffer because your employer has been negligent. We understand that not only will you need to be compensated for your injuries, but also for expenses incurred for other expenses such as medical treatment, rehabilitation, or losses incurred through sick leave from work, or home care or assistance. Speak to our solicitors at the soonest opportunity to discuss your claim - there are time limits in place for personal injury claims, so don't delay. We can help you every step of the way, and take you smoothly through the entire process.
All employers are responsible for their employee's safety at work and must ensure that workers and others are protected from harm, and risk health or injury arising from the workplace environment and may liable for accidents that happen in the course of the employee's work. This means the employer must provide adequate safety equipment, and the correct tools for the job, in good working order. They must also provide training for proper, safe use of the tools.
Where your employer has failed to take measures to provide a safe working environment, they may be liable to compensate you for the pain suffered, lost earnings and other costs that have incurred as a result of the accident. Employers are expected to carry out regular safety checks to ensure that the workplace is safe. Failure to do so can show the employer has been negligent.
If you have been diagnosed with a condition that has developed because of conditions in your workplace, get in touch as soon as possible. You can even claim compensation for conditions that developed over many years from a previous employer. Whether you suffer from deafness, or an asbestos-related disease as a result of your work environment, we can help. Where your employer is no longer running as a business, we can help track down who is responsible to compensate you for your losses.
Our solicitors can advise you of any evidence that may support your claim, such as receipts for treatment received, pay slips, photographic evidence, and evidence of any extra expense incurred as a result of the accident such as home care or transport needs.
