Workplace violence compensation claims
No-one should experience a personal injury due to violence or the fear of violence at work. Sadly over half a million people are affected on an annual basis.
As one of the largest employer liability teams in the UK, our specialist solicitors may be able to help you recover the financial losses incurred, costs for on-going care and rehabilitation and compensation for the stress and trauma caused by your accident.
On a no win no fee basis, our workplace violence solicitors can help you claim the compensation you deserve with free, no obligation advice on making your claim. You will only be charged if your case is successful which means that you will not be out of pocket, even if your claim is unsuccessful.
What is a workplace assault?
Personal injury caused by workplace violence can have a major impact on an individual and their family. The injuries sustained following workplace violence range from physical pain to psychological trauma. The impact of such an injury can cause an individual to require treatment such as surgery, physiotherapy and cognitive behavioural therapy for the psychological trauma caused.
An individual and their family may be able to make legitimate workplace violence claims following an attack in the workplace, as a way of compensating for lost earnings and treatment costs. Your claim will also take into account the nature and severity of any injuries, with compensation being awarded for physical and psychological trauma.
How much compensation will I receive in my workplace assault compensation claim?
This really depends on your circumstances and the severity of your injury. 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 injury. In addition compensation can also be claimed in respect of care needs, financial losses, medical care and treatment.
Will I need a medical examination as part of my workplace assault compensation claim?
Yes. As part of the compensation claim your specialist workplace violence solicitor will arrange for you to undergo a medical examination with an independent medical expert. This will be used as evidence for your claim.
