If you have been injured at work in Tower Hamlets, you might be able to make a claim. You will normally need to bring your claim against your employer, although you could also make a claim against a third party, depending on the circumstances of your accident.
There are quite a few scenarios that could lead to an accident at work claim, including accidents caused by slips and trips, faulty equipment, hazardous chemicals, heavy lifting and falls from heights. This list does not include every scenario in which you could claim compensation, but it does offer a guide to the sorts of claims you can make. If you need further clarification, please call our Freephone helpline and let our trained claims advisers provide you with free, no-obligation advice based on your individual circumstances.
