Accident at Work Claim

There is a wide spectrum of workplace injury claims, from construction site accidents to repetitive strain injuries, asbestos exposure and a range of office related injuries.

An employer is duty bound to assess the risk of harm from his work and to take all reasonable steps to minimise that risk. If assessments are not carried out or are inadequate then the employer will usually be liable for any resulting accident at work.

There is a now a wealth of health and safety legislation but many employers remain oblivious to the dangers of the workplace or the duties they owe to protect their employees and others.

Examples of recent accident at work claims the personal injury department at Osbornes have dealt with:

  • Builder suffering psychological reaction following needle stick injury from discarded syringe. Employers failed to take action to prevent drug users using work site. Claim settled for £20,000.
  • Labourer sustained burns to ankle when liquid nitrogen leaked from pipe he was working on. Required plastic surgery. Claim settled for £100,000.
  • 60 year old machinist tripped over cable from her sewing machine, sustaining back injury. Recovered £70,000 damages.
  • Train driver traumatised after witnessing suicides, but not counselled by employer and suffered severe psychiatric reaction. Claim settled at door of court for £50,000.
  • Bank employee suffered stress after bullying from supervisor. Claim settled for £40,000.
