  • “A niche firm that punches well above its weight in the catastrophic injury sector, borne out by the quality of work they obtain.”

Making an accident at work claim

If you have been injured in the last three years and the injuries you suffered resulted from your employers, managers or other employees failing to follow health and safety rules you are entitled to make a claim. Your accident may have resulted from one of the following:

  • Dangerous working practices
  • Poor or non-existent workplace risk assessments
  • Limited or non-existent personal protective equipment (PPE)
  • A spillage that could have been prevented
  • A fall from height
  • Poorly maintained equipment

What are my rights if I suffer an injury at work?

The law states that you should always be provided with safe and suitable work equipment. You should also receive proper training to complete your required tasks and work alongside other correctly trained employees who will not put you in any risk. Making a claim will not affect your employment rights.

Will I have to pay to make an accident at work compensation?

Our personal injury cases are handled on a No Win No Fee basis. This means there will be no cost to you. Speak to one of our London solicitors to discuss your claim.
