Work accident injury lawyer
You need a work accident injury lawyer if you want to make a claim for compensation following an injury sustained as a result of an accident at work.
This could be a claim for compensation as a result of an injury arising from a common accident type such as a slip, trip or fall, or a road traffic accident. It could also be as a result of a work-specific injury, such as an injury caused by:

- machinery which can cause cuts or crush injuries
- electrical equipment which can result in electric shocks
A claim for compensation has to be made within three years of the date of your accident and your injury needs to be somebody else’s fault.
