Can I make a claim for any type of workplace injury or illness?
If you have been injured at work, please call our Freephone helpline for no-obligation advice on your legal rights. Our dedicated claims advisors will be happy to take down the details of your case and determine your eligibility to compensation.
Can I claim for an injury I suffered a few years ago?
The general rule is that you have three years, starting from the date of your accident, in which to make your claim. To determine whether you are eligible to make a claim, please consult with our friendly legal team.
Can my employer fire me for making a claim through an accident lawyer?
We understand that you may feel concerned about the prospect of damaging your working relationship with your boss. However, your accident lawyer will work hard to ensure that you can continue to work for your employer without issue.
What happens if I no longer work for the employer who caused my injury or illness?
You are legally entitled to make a claim against your former employer, so long as you make your claim within three years from the date on which you sustained your injury or illness. To make a successful claim, you must be able to prove that your employer exposed you to dangerous working conditions during your period of employment with them.
Will I have to face my employer in court?
Your accident lawyer will always make the effort to settle your work accident claim by negotiation. In cases where your lawyer cannot reach an agreement with your employer, you may be required to attend a court hearing. If this is necessary, your lawyer will provide you with all the support you require.
