Accidents at Work

No matter where you work, your employer has a statutory and common law duty to ensure certain health and safety standards. All employers must:

  • Carry out regular health and safety assessments and risk assessments of working conditions
  • Provide proper equipment to allow employees to carry out their work safely
  • Provide regular and adequate training
  • Ensure that appropriate safety measures are in place, and are being adhered to

If you suffer an accident in the workplace, it may well be because your employer has failed to ensure the requirements above have been met. If this is the case, they have breached their duty of care to you as an employee, and are guilty of negligence.

As a firm, we are experienced in advising in relation to such claims, and work with you in order to ensure that you are fully compensated. We will tailor the handling of your case to its specific circumstances, and make sure that all of your needs are met.

We understand that some injuries will require physiotherapy or rehabilitation, and we will help to get you the medical assistance you require. We are also aware that some accidents in the workplace lead to long periods off work, and in this situation we look to obtain payments on account so that you do not suffer unnecessary financial hardship whilst your claim is being actioned.

We regularly handle all nature of claims of this nature, including but not limited to the following:

  • Slips and falls at work
  • Injuries sustained due to defective equipment
  • Burns, cuts
  • Failure of employer to provide a safe working environment
  • Hearing problems due to noise pollution at work
