If you have been the victim of an injury suffered in the workplace, regardless of where you work, then you might be entitled to make a claim for compensation.
Contact Accident Advice Helpline today to find out if you could be entitled to make a claim. You can either speak to one of our friendly advisers who will be on hand to answer any questions you might have about the process, or you can take our quick and easy online test.
Taking our 30-second test, which you will find on our website, will give you all the information you need to know about making a claim for compensation if you have an injury suffered in the workplace.
By answering a few simple questions about the nature of the injury suffered in the workplace we can tell you not only if you can make a claim, probably against your employer, but also how much you can possibly expect to be awarded.
We can then discuss the details of your case with you in more detail and arrange for one of our expert in house solicitors to work with you to make your claim and win you the financial compensation that you deserve.
Types of injury suffered in the workplace
Our solicitors have worked on countless cases where clients have an injury suffered in the workplace. We have worked with builders and other tradespeople who have been injured both on site, and whilst working in other people’s homes. Such individuals can suffer injury as a result of health and safety failings, lack of training, lack of appropriate personal protection equipment or through using faulty or defective machinery.
In such situations the possibilities for accident and therefore injury are almost limitless.
Our solicitors have also helped shop and office workers make claims against their employers for failing to maintain safety within the work place. This could be as a result of not ensuring that the stock room is kept tidy, meaning that a member of staff has fallen over boxes that have been left strewn across the floor. It might be that the office and building environment itself is in need of maintenance and repair, for example, handrails on stair cases not being fitted properly meaning that it is easy for staff members to fall when on the stairs.
Perhaps outside areas are not property cared for, specifically during periods of adverse weather. For example, if you are on your way to or from your car, and it is parked on work premises and your employer has not provided grit or salt to help minimise the opportunity for accident and you have suffered an injury sustained in work as a result, our solicitors might be able to help you make a claim for compensation.
