Bradford accident injury claims following a workplace incident
If you have been injured in an accident at work then you are certainly not alone. There are countless work-based accidents every year, and as one of the country’s leading injury law firms we have ample experience to help you claim compensation for your injury.
We were founded in 2000, and since then we have dealt with hundreds of Bradford personal injury claims arising from accidents in the workplace; from stress and back pain, to asbestosis and hearing loss. So whatever injury you are suffering because of your accident, we will be able to help you claim.
- Please note that you cannot get legal aid for a personal injury claim.
Many people who contact us for advice on claiming compensation for an injury they received at work express concerns about losing their job, or about facing their employer in court.
Deciding to claim compensation is not a decision that should be taken lightly, particularly with work injuries – we can tell you that you cannot, by law, be dismissed from your job because you are seeking compensation; you have been injured somewhere along the line as a result of your employers negligence, so you have every right to claim compensation. Although we understand that returning to work, particularly for a small company, may feel awkward at first, you’ll soon regain your footing.
It is worth pointing out here that your employer doesn’t pay your compensation; your money will be paid to you by your employer’s insurance company.
We can’t promise that you won’t meet your employer in court but you may be reassured to learn that the majority of personal injury claims are settled before they get to court. Out-of-court agreements keep legal costs down for all parties involved. So lawyers on all sides aim for such an agreement.
What can you claim for?
You can claim for any injury or illness, however serious. Most Bradford accident injury claims are for work-related stress and long-term back pain but other examples of common work injuries include:
- Repetitive strain injuries
- Carpal tunnel syndrome
- Contact dermatitis
- Bone fractures
- Impaired vision
If you are unsure whether you can claim compensation for your injury or illness, please call our helpline on 0800 689 0500, and one of our advisors will confirm this for you. There is no obligation to continue any claim with us because you have used this service.
Your compensation claim will also take into account any injury-related costs, such as money spent on childcare, travel or private medical treatment. So it is important that you keep note of your expenses and retain relevant receipts and bank/credit card statements.
