    North West Leicestershire accident at work

    Your employer has a duty of care towards you. This means that they are legally obliged to take reasonable precautions to avoid placing you in the path of danger while you are at work. If you are unlucky enough to suffer an injury in a North West Leicestershire accident at work caused by your employer’s disregard for your health and safety, you will therefore have a legal right to make a 100% no win, no fee claim against them. However, you will have a better chance at successful in your efforts if you call our Freephone helpline and work with an Accident Advice Helpline solicitor to prove that your employer was at fault and that their actions led to your injuries.

    Proving that your employer breached their duty of care

    First, we will help you to prove that your employer created or allowed a dangerous situation above and beyond the normal level of risk you would expect to encounter in your workplace. In some cases, proving that your employer breached their duty of care is a simple task. For instance, if you were required to operate dangerous machinery and your employer refused to provide you with adequate health and safety training, we will be able to prove that your employer failed to take care of you while you were at work.

    Linking your North West Leicestershire accident at work to your injuries

    Usually, once we have demonstrated that your employer breached their duty of care, we will have established their legal responsibility for your injuries. However, your employer may claim that their negligence was not the sole cause of your North West Leicestershire accident at work. For example, they may claim that you acted carelessly or that you suffered your injuries as a result of a post-accident event. We will therefore need to work with you to gather evidence in support of your claim.

    Receiving compensation from your employer

    Your employer’s liability insurance should cover the cost of your North West Leicestershire accident at work claim, so we will mainly deal with your employer’ insurer when negotiating your compensation settlement. At first, your employer’s insurer may propose an offer of compensation so low it does not cover your injuries and losses. In this instance, we will bargain with the insurer with the aim of securing a fair settlement on your behalf. To estimate the size of the compensation settlement you could expect to receive through working with us, please use our 30-second test.
