Accidents at work compensation claims

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 those for:

  • 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 about the accident as soon as possible. The company you work for is legally required to keep an accident book, so you should also make a record of your work accident.

Employer responsibility

Accidents at work are quite common. Whether you work at a factory, a restaurant, a shop, a farm or in an office, there are always potential dangers which could cause an accident and result in serious injuries. If you are involved in an accident at work, you may be entitled to make a claim for compensation.

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

This responsibility includes providing:

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

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

Your employer is legally obliged to have insurance, known as Employers Liability Insurance, to cover them for any accidents at work. If you are successful in making a no win no fee work accident claim, it is the company’s insurers who would pay the work compensation claim, which can include compensation for loss of earnings.
