Accident at work claims & compensation
You have the legal right to a safe place of work. Employers are obliged to ensure you are properly trained and provided with appropriate personal protective equipment (PPE). They must also undertake risk assessments and manage their business in such a way that minimises risk to you. Unfortunately, sometimes things do not go as planned and employees get hurt.

We specialise in work injury and accident at work claims
Our team of dedicated experts have obtained compensation for clients that have suffered a range of injuries, from cuts and bruises to serious life-changing injuries such as amputations.
Injuries sustained in an accident at work are most often caused by:
- Lifting excessive weight
- Employer’s failure to provide appropriate PPE
- Falling from a height such as scaffolding or a ladder
- Unsafe policies and the negligence of colleagues
We have also dealt with many cases relating to industrial diseases such as industrial hearing loss, vibration injuries and respiratory illnesses caused by asbestos or other harmful particles.
You have a right to be safe from injury at work
Many employees worry that pursuing the compensation they deserve will affect their relationship with their employer and perhaps even lose them their job. The majority of employers know that in that instance they might be breaking the law and further legal action could be pursued. Employers have insurance policies in place to ensure employees are fairly compensated in the result of an accident at work.
