    Accident at work in Leicester

    Leicester is the biggest city in the East Midlands, with the region’s largest economy. A wide range of household name companies are based in the area, from Next to British Gas. Engineering and textiles are also vital to the local economy, while Walker’s crisps is also based on the city’s outskirts.

    With such a diverse regional economy, the reality is that the chances of having an accident at work in Leicester are about the same as they are for anywhere else in the UK.

    These types of accidents vary from burns and lacerations to damage of soft tissues, or even more serious injuries including those to the brain or spine and, in the very worst cases, even fatal injuries.

    If you are unlucky enough to have been affected by an accident at work in Leicester, through no fault of your own, and have suffered a workplace injury, it may well be possible for you to pursue a claim for personal injury compensation.

    Workplace accidents are similar to other compensation claims, in that you will need to prove that your illness, disease or injury happened directly because of another party’s negligence – in other words that your employer was to blame. Equally, your accident must have occurred within the last three years.

    To help put together all the evidence, and to present the case to the third party insurers, you need to appoint a personal injury solicitor.

    Once that’s done, you should bear in mind that the time taken to settle your claim varies, though a good personal injury law firm will work hard to make sure yours is settled as quickly as possible.

    Finally, if you were reluctant to pursue a claim because you thought it would mean facing your employer across a courtroom, think again. Most claims can be settled out of court.
