Had a workplace accident? Our local injury lawyers can help!

Workplace accidents result in injuries to thousands of employees in the UK every year. And these range from relatively minor cuts or bruises to more serious injuries and in some cases even fatalities.

Where such an injury is caused by negligence on the part of an employer or fellow employee, the injured person has a legal right to pursue workplace accident claim compensation.

All employers have a duty to protect their workers from injury or disease by providing:
  • safe systems of work
  • safe premises
  • plant, tools and equipment which are safe, properly maintained and suitable for the job
  • competent employees
  • adequate and appropriate personal equipment
  • adequate and proper supervision and training
It is estimated that one million people in the UK suffer an injury at their workplace, the majority of which could have been avoided.

Our personal injury lawyers have vast experience in dealing with all kinds of workplace accident claims. The most common accidents are caused by:
  • Lifting and carrying
  • Falling
  • Burns
  • Back injuries
  • Repetitive Strain Injuries
  • Post Traumatic Stress
  • Faulty Machinery
  • Fork Lift Trucks/Vehicles
  • Scaffolding Accidents
Whether you work at a factory, a restaurant, a shop, a farm or in an office, there are always potential dangers which could cause an accident at work. If you are involved in a work related accident which was not your fault, you may be entitled to make a workplace injury compensation claim.

If you do have an injury at work…
Always write down the details of your accident, and log it in your company’s accident book. This should be done as soon as possible and every workplace should have one. Make sure that the facts in the accident book are correct and if there are any witnesses you should take their details too. You should also go to your doctor or hospital if necessary so that there is a record of your medical history.

All of this is crucial if you intend on claiming for compensation.
