Have you suffered an accident in work?
If you are one of the thousands of UK employees that have suffered an accident in work in the last three years, you need to find out if you’re entitled to make a no win no fee accident at work claim for compensation.
Compensation is awarded to you when you suffer an accident as a result of someone else’s failure to keep you safe. This can be because of a poor decision that person has taken, such as a bad driver, or an action they failed to take, such as mending a broken drain cover.
So who is to blame?
An accident at work often means that your employer hasn’t fulfilled their responsibility. In other words, often they haven’t made sure that your workplace is safe for you to work in.
This could be for many reasons. Perhaps you have been injured by equipment that was poorly maintained. Maybe the equipment has injured you because you used it incorrectly as your employer didn’t give you sufficient training in its use.
You may have suffered a slip, trip or fall on a wet or uneven floor. Or you may have injured your back in a manual handling or lifting injury. In the most extreme cases, you may have suffered an industrial injury, such as vibration white finger, as a direct result of the type of work you do.
But can you stand up to your employer?
Yes, with our help and support, you can stand up to your employer and get the compensation you are entitled to. Remember that compensation is an entitlement, not a ‘favour’ – it is awarded to you to try and put you back in the position you would have been in if your accident in work had not taken place.
Many people are worried that they are risking their job by making a claim. That would be against Employment law, though, and in our experience problems are rare. Employees making a genuine claim generally find that they have very little trouble remaining in their role with their employer.
