Accident Advice Helpline and our injury lawyer in Banbridge specialise in accidents or injuries which have occurred in the workplace. We have one of the highest success rates in the UK, and we endeavour to obtain the maximum compensation award possible. Accident and injuries at work are usually caused by an employer not following health and safety guidelines. This can be due to ignorance, forgetfulness or a blatant disregard of the regulations. Whatever the reason, many accidents can occur which could have been prevented by following the Health and Safety Act.
Our injury lawyer in Banbridge knows that simple slips, trips and falls can contribute to an accident at work which could easily be avoided with some basic safety inspections before each shift. Lifting, pulling, pushing and holding incorrectly are major contributors to accidents at work. Simple health and safety training could educate employees correctly.

Subconsciously, you put a lot of trust in your employer to protect your safety in the place of work. If they have failed to do this, they have let you down and you are well entitled to pursue a claim for compensation to receive the justice you deserve. Maybe you had not been provided with the correct safety equipment or uniform, hadn’t received adequate training, or weren’t given sufficient breaks — there can be a number of ways in which your employer will have been liable for your accident and we know how to best obtain you the compensation award for your circumstances. We will also have you reimbursed for any financial hardships such as loss of pay or costs incurred due to your accident.
