If you’ve been injured in a Bradford accident at work, you may be entitled to a substantial compensation award. As you’ve arrived at this page, that may be what you’re thinking.

For well over a decade we’ve been helping people all over the country, including in Bradford, to get what they’re legally entitled to following an injury at work. We don’t charge anything to take on a case because all of our expert personal injury solicitors work on a no-win, no-fee* basis. We’ll do our best to ensure your case succeeds and you get a compensation award, but even if you don’t there’s nothing to pay.
Does my Bradford accident at work qualify for a claim?
All sorts of injuries in the workplace are eligible for compensation; it just depends on what they are and their severity. If you’ve had to have medical attention following your Bradford accident at work, and are perhaps receiving ongoing treatment, there’s a good chance you may qualify for a claim. It will be beneficial to provide us with your medical details as well as a report from your doctor detailing your injuries.
Bear in mind that under the rules, in order to claim compensation for a personal injury, the accident must have occurred in the last three years. In some cases there are exceptions, such as with industrial diseases. In addition, you’ll need to prove that you didn’t cause the accident, so any statements you can get from colleagues who saw what happened will be useful.
Will my job be at risk if I file a compensation claim?
You don’t have to concern yourself with thoughts of upsetting the boss by filing a compensation claim. That’s because all firms in the UK are bound by law to have adequate insurance in place to cover the eventuality of employees being injured at work and making a claim. So it’s not the boss paying out, but the insurance policy.
