Contact us

We are one of the UK's leading personal injury law firms and are experts at pursuing work accident and illness claims.

Our specialist personal injury solicitors act on a 'no win, no fee' basis. We conduct a wide range of work accident claims, including:

  • breaches of health & safety 
  • work system failure
  • infrastructure failure
  • machinery accidents
  • serious falls
  • transport accidents at work

If you suffer an injury due to a work accident, it is important that you notify your employer as soon as possible. Your employer is legally required to keep an accident book, so keep a record of your accident.

Industrial disease claims

We are also one of the UK's most experienced industrial disease team, with more than 30 years' experience pursuing claims for people suffering mesothelioma, lung cancer and asbestosis as a result of asbestos exposure at work. Further information is available in our mesothelioma and asbestos disease section.

Directories Legal 500 and Chambers recommend us as one of the top UK law firms for personal injury work. We are committed to representing claimants living and working in the UK and abroad.

Employer responsibility

Unfortunately, accidents at work are fairly common. Whether you work in a factory, a restaurant, a shop, a farm or an office, potential dangers always exist that might cause an accident and serious injury or worse, a fatality.

All employers have a legal responsibility to provide their employees with a safe and secure workplace.

This means providing:

  • adequate equipment and materials
  • competent co-workers
  • a safe system of work
  • appropriate training and supervision

If your employer breaches their legal responsibility and you suffer a work injury, you could be entitled to make a no win no fee work accident compensation claim.

Your employer must have Employers Liability Insurance to cover them for accidents at work. If you are successful in making a no win no fee work accident claim, the company’s insurers will settle the claim, which can include medical expenses and compensation for loss of earnings.
