Specialists in accident at work claims

Have you been in a workplace accident?

A significant number of people suffer from accidents at work every single year. If you have been hurt in an accident or developed an injury because of your job, you may be entitled to compensation. Our personal injury solicitors are highly experienced in accident at work claims and can help you to get the justice you deserve.

Who is at fault?

Your employer has a duty of care and is responsible for making sure that your working environment is completely safe to use. If they breach this legal obligation and fail to put the correct safety measures in place, this can result in you becoming involved in an accident.

An incident can also occur as a result of a fellow colleague or even a separate company who may be or have been based at your workplace. If you sustain an injury at work, you may be able to make an accident at work claim against whoever is responsible.
