    Oldham accident at work


    You might both live and work in Oldham itself, or you might be employed and commute elsewhere in the Greater Manchester area. Whichever is you, it’s sadly possible that, at some stage, you might suffer a workplace-related accident, injury or even a medical disease or condition caused by the environment at work. When and if this happens to you, rather than dealing with a general solicitor locally, many people have found it’s better to contact a team of highly experienced specialists in this key, and highly complex, legal area.

    When to contact Accident Advice Helpline

    No matter where you work, if you are the innocent victim of an accident or negligence, then you should immediately consider whether to make a claim. Here are a few examples of such situations:

    • Injuries cause by the repetitive strain of daily tasks.
    • Diseases such as industrial deafness or vibration white finger.
    • Suffering a serious trip or slip in the working environment.
    • Involvement in a work-related road accident.
    • Product liability if used during work situations.
    • Failure to follow vital Health and Safety procedures.

    A simple single step to take action about your Oldham accident at work claim

    One call to our Accident Advice Helpline team gives you the opportunity to set out the circumstances of your Oldham accident at work scenario, including witnesses and the medical treatment you have sought. This should be as soon as possible after the event, but within three years at most (can be longer for certain diseases).

    How we progress your claim

    One of our professional and helpful team will gather all the information about your Oldham accident at work, which then allows our experienced solicitors to assess the prospects of your claim. All of this is obligation-free on your part. Should a decision to proceed be agreed, it’s on a no-win, no-fee* basis. It’s very unlikely you would be asked to appear at court, the vast majority of the thousands of claims we’ve processed over the last decade and more have been dealt with over the telephone.
