    Portsmouth accident at work


    Accidents at work in Portsmouth can happen for a number of reasons. They may result from dangerous equipment, insufficient training, unsafe manual handling procedures or careless colleagues.

    Your employer is responsible for protecting your health and safety while you are at work and if you believe they may have failed to provide you with a safe and secure working environment, please call Accident Advice Helpline for a free, no-obligation preliminary chat. We will advise you whether you have a claim against your employer and grant you the chance to hire an experienced personal injury solicitor.

    What to claim for after a Portsmouth accident at work

    If your claim is successful, you will receive two main types of compensation: general damages, for your pain and suffering, and special damages, for your financial losses.

    • General damages
      The amount of general damages compensation you will receive will depend on the type and severity of the injury you have suffered. For further information on the level of compensation you could expect to recover, please use our 30-second test.
    • Special damages
      If you have had to take time off work following your Portsmouth accident at work, you will be entitled to recover any lost earnings you have suffered. Whilst your claim will help you to recover the money you have not received, it will also cover any money you have paid out as a result of your accident, for example, prescription charges and travel costs you would not have otherwise incurred. If you have had to seek medical treatment for your injury, you will be able to claim for private medical treatment charges, provided the treatment you received was necessary and the cost was not excessive.

    The law in England also recognises that your family members may have played a key role in helping you during your recovery period. If any of your family have provided you with help with everyday activities such as washing and dressing, meal preparation, grocery shopping or cleaning, it will be possible for you to recover compensation for the services that they have provided to you.

    How to get the compensation you deserve

    You can claim for a number of different losses and expenses following your Portsmouth accident at work, but you will only have one opportunity to receive compensation from your employer. To ensure you receive the maximum possible compensation settlement, please get in touch with us today and instruct one of our 100% no win, no fee personal injury solicitors to act on your behalf.
