Accidents at work compensation claims
If you have suffered an injury or accident at work, you may just put it down to bad luck, clumsiness, or the risks that were involved with the type of work that you do. However, no matter where you work, your employer has a duty of care toward you at work. If they fail, causing you an injury, they are legally liable and you could be entitled to compensation.
Individuals and family members affected by a work place accident or work place injury may be eligible to claim personal injury compensation on a no win, no fee basis. Our accident at work solicitors have a national reputation for delivering the best possible results for our clients and can help you make an accident at work compensation claim.

What are my rights if I have had an accident at work claim?
If you have been injured in an accident at work which was not your fault, you may be entitled to claim compensation for your injuries. Your chances of a successful claim will be based on whether you are able to prove that your injuries were caused as a direct result of the negligent acts or omissions of your employer who owed you a duty or care.
How much will you get for a work accident compensation claim?
This really depends on your circumstances and the severity of your injury or illness. This can vary between individuals, but be rest assured that our specialist team is experienced in ensuring that you and your family receive the maximum compensation you are entitled to.
Compensation will include an award for the pain and suffering caused by your illness. In addition, compensation can also be claimed in respect of care needs, financial losses, medical care and treatment.
How long does an accident at work compensation claim take?
There are a number of factors that affect a personal injury claim. These make it difficult to give an exact timescale and are affected by:
- The availability to collect evidence
- Whether the entity responsible admits liability
- The nature of your injury and illness
It’s important to consider all these factors as our specialist solicitors need evaluate the true impact of your injury or illness when calculating your compensation.
