    The Law On Claiming For An Accident At Work

    All employers have a legal duty to take care for the safety of their workers, so if you have been injured at work you may  have grounds to claim compensation for your injuries.

    What Will The Boss Say?

    Some clients are hesitant about bringing a claim for an accident at work, and we perfectly understand that but all you are doing is standing up for your legal rights.

    Your employers are legally required to have valid Employers’ Liability Insurance, so if you make a claim it will be dealt with by your employers’ insurance company. If your employers don’t have proper insurance, or if they object to you making a claim after being badly hurt at work… Maybe you shouldn’t be working for them anyway.

    Frequently Asked Questions

    The Law regarding accidents at work is quite straightforward. Your employers have a legal responsibility to take care for your safety.

    If you are injured in an accident at work you may be able to claim compensation for your injuries and financial losses.

    Our solicitors have over 20 years’ expertise in claims for accidents at work. We often win cases after other lawyers haven’t been able to get anywhere.

    The biggest factors in any claim will usually be the severity of the injury and then the amount of any financial losses.

    We will gather all the necessary expert medical evidence, and documentary evidence of any financial losses.

    We will then discuss the value of your case with you in detail before any settlement negotiations take place.

    We have settled work accident claims ranging between £3,000 and £500,000.

    Most of our accidents at work claims are settled within 12 months of the first call.

    The government recently streamlined the process for claiming compensation. There is a compulsory online system for dealing with all claims worth less than £25,000.

    In more serious claims (worth £25,000 or more) the case can go on for longer. We may need to wait for medical evidence, and it may be necessary to bring court proceedings.

    But, even then it would be unusual for your case to go on much longer than 18 months.

    We won’t get our fees until the case is finished. So we will get on with things as quickly as we can!

    We can tell you within a few minutes whether or not your case is worth pursuing.

    Claims for an accident at work are governed by the Pre-Action Protocol For Personal Injury Claims.

    The protocol encourages all parties to settle cases quickly, without court proceedings.

    We will make detailed initial enquiries with you about the cause of the accident.

    If necessary we will come out to see you at home to discuss the case in detail.

    We will gather all the necessary evidence about who was to blame.

    This might include: statements from you and any witnesses; maintenance records for any machines that were involved; training records for any other workers involved; risk assessments and method statements.

    We will also gather expert medical evidence about your injury and full details of any loss of earnings and other financial losses.

    Even when it is necessary to bring court proceedings the vast majority of our Accident at Work cases are settled on favourable terms long before we ever get to a trial.

    When cases do go ahead as a trial the experience of giving evidence is rarely as difficult as people imagine.

    We have previously published some very straightforward pointers about giving evidence at court.

    We will discuss the fee arrangements clearly and carefully before asking you to sign our terms and conditions.

    “No Win No Fee” is usually the best option for our clients.

    We never charge any “upfront” fees.

    There are no hidden charges, and we will never leave you out of pocket.

    Most importantly, if you lose the case you pay nothing at all.

    We have never had a complaint in relation to fees.

    We have been dealing with compensation claims for accidents at work for over twenty five years.

    We have recovered millions of pounds for our clients.

    We promise to speak to you in plain English.

    We’ll come to see you at a time and place that’s convenient for you.

    We have held the Law Society’s LEXCEL quality mark since 2002. Only about 5% of law firms have achieved LEXCEL recognition.

    In a survey 97% of our clients described our service as good or excellent.

    On many occasions we have won cases for clients who had been told by other lawyers “You haven’t got grounds for a claim!”
