Work Accident Claims
Due to injury at work law, your employer has a legal and moral duty to keep you safe while you are at work. Injuring yourself in the course of your job through no fault of your own just should not happen. Not only is it distressing physically, but it can also cause you to incur lost income and possibly face the expense of medical treatment and rehabilitation costs. Work related accidents can have lasting consequences on your life and that of your dependents.
The accident at work solicitors we work with at The Compensation Experts achieve great success with work accident claims. We offer a No Win No Fee* contract which removes the financial risk of paying legal fees without guarantee of obtaining compensation. Contact our advisors today to find out whether you are entitled to make a claim and how to proceed with reporting accidents at work.
What is a Work Accident Claim?
You can suffer any injury at work, ranging from repetitive strain injury to severe brain injury, or even death. Some of the more frequent reasons clients contact The Compensation Experts include:
- Industrial accidents, including crushed limbs
- Slips, trips and falls
- Falling from ladders, scaffolding, roofs, or other places at height
- Muscular strain from incorrect lifting
- Repetitive strain injury
- Industrial deafness
- Eye strain and headaches
- Chemical burns
This example is a good representation of the types of the accident at work claims we hear at The Compensation Experts. As part of his job, a man was requested to help demolish a building. He was asked to remove the supporting roof structures but did not have the correct training or knowledge to do this safely. His employer did also not undertake a risk assessment of the project. While removing the roof structure, the man had his arm crushed under a steel supporting beam, badly fracturing it and causing pain, nerve damage, and limited mobility in that limb two years later.
The case took nearly two years to resolve and his employer’s insurers settled just before it was due to go to court. The victim’s lawyers were able to obtain a significant payment in part because he sought legal advice early. His work accident lawyer guided him through the process of getting expert medical reports and assessments that proved the extent of the damage his accident caused.
