    Injury at work compensation in Manchester

    You may be able to claim injury at work compensation in Manchester if you have sustained injuries whilst going about your job. If you were the victim of an accident at work that wasn’t your fault, and which you think could have been avoided, then you more than likely have a legal claim against your employer. This can be an intimidating process, though, so we have compiled a short list of questions and answers to address some of the more frequently seen concerns. If an accident gave you an injury at work and you want injury at work compensation in Manchester, then our solicitors for Manchester  can help you.

    Q. What if I know that a particular individual was responsible for the accident? Do I have to sue them?

    A. Simply, no. Your employer is under a duty to provide adequate safety training and equipment, to supervise its employees adequately, and also not to hire people who might pose a danger to others in the workplace. Employees are also usually responsible for the actions of any of their employees in the workplace – even if those actions happen outside of normal working hours. If you know that a specific person was responsible for the accident, you can just claim against the company that employs you.

    Q. What if my employer hires expensive lawyers to defend the claim? Won’t that make it all very expensive?

    A. The winning side in any claim gets its costs from the other side, so there is no need to worry about your employer’s legal fees when collecting your compensation. Further, we take on all of our cases exclusively on a no-win, no-fee* basis, meaning that you don’t have to pay us a penny unless your claim is successful. It’s also the case that with some claims each side has to pay their own lawyers, and cannot get money from the other side for this, whatever happens. If your claim falls into that category, your employer is hiring their expensive lawyers at their own risk, and there is no reason not to pursue your claim.

    Q. I really don’t want to go to court, will this stop me being able to claim injury at work compensation in Manchester?

    A. Many of our cases are resolved without our client ever having to attend court in person. It is entirely possible to win the compensation you are entitled to without ever having to set foot in a court room. This is effectively the same as winning your claim, even if there is no trial: settling a claim is not the same as settling for second best, and we are very successful at achieving this.
