Can I Make A Claim After An Accident At Work?

We will be able to tell you very quickly if you are able to make an accident at work claim as each case depends on the individual circumstances. Employers have a very strict duty to ensure that employees have a safe working environment and that there are no risks or hazards that may cause an injury. They must also have insurance in place in case there are any accidents at work.

There are so many different types of work accidents. For you to be able to make a claim it must be shown that there was negligence or a breach of duty of care by your employer that has led to the accident which has caused your injuries.

If you are unsure as to whether or not you would be able to make a claim then get in contact with us today and we will be able to discuss with you the circumstances of the accident and how it occurred and who was at fault. We will then be able to tell you whether or not you will be able to make a claim for compensation or not.

Construction Site Accident Settles for £17,000

To give you an example of the different types of work accidents, we have recently helped to obtain compensation for a client who was working on a building site when a heavy beam fell onto the back of his neck causing neck and shoulder injuries.

We obtained a medical report for our client which gave a time line of over a year before he would fully recover from the accident. In that case we were able to obtain a compensation settlement of £17,000 for our client. He kept 100% of his compensation after the accident. Our legal fees were paid by the insurance company.

Office Accident Settles for £3,500

Another recent case that we were involved in was for a client who had boiling water injuries, caused by a faulty coffee machine at work. We were able to obtain a compensation settlement of £3,500 for our client.

These are just two different types of accident that we helped clients successfully obtain compensation.

Each case is different and only by talking to you and discussing your case we will be able to quickly tell you whether or not you are able to make a claim and then we leave the decision up to you as to whether you want to go ahead or not. We will not put you under any pressure, we just want to see the best and right outcome for you and we will be able to help you and guide you along the way.

How Much Compensation Can I get For A Work Accident?

The amount of compensation that you can get for a work accident will vary from case to case depending on how serious the injuries are. If your injuries are relatively minor and resolve within a couple of weeks then you will obviously receive a lower compensation settlement than a case where it takes a number of years to resolve.

We have a Work Accident Compensation Calculator which you can use to get an idea of what kind of compensation settlement you could receive for your accident.

Work accidents can happen in a variety of ways. We have helped people claim compensation after all types of accidents at work with very different injuries. The type of injury you sustain will obviously have an impact on the amount of compensation that you receive.

This can include psychological and psychiatric upset after an accident.

It can also include Loss of Earnings /Wages if you have not been able to work because of your injuries and you are left out of pocket.

Psychiatric Upset Claim Settles

A case that we were recently able to help with was for a client who was working in a takeaway when a fault with a deep fat fryer caused the hot oil to hit our client in the face causing burns to their face and neck. The burns themselves did not leave scars, but our client was left very traumatised and upset after the accident.

After an Accident at Work you may not know where to turn. It can be difficult to know who to speak to especially if your employer and colleagues are unsupportive of you.

Can I Claim for an accident at work?

After an accident it is  best to talk to our personal injury solicitors as soon as you can. As legal experts, we can advise you as to your options, explaining whether you have been wrongly injured at work. When an accident at work happens, it is possible that an employer failed to comply with health and safety legislation. If so, the injured employee is entitled to make a personal injury claim for compensation.

Employers have a responsibility to ensure their employees can work safely and without risk of injury. This is known as a ‘duty of care’. An employer can meet their duty of care in a number of ways. For example, machinery and equipment must be well maintained. Adequate training and supervision must be given. Protective clothing and safety equipment must be provided, and all health and safety regulations must be adhered to. The law is designed to ensure that employees can enjoy a safety working environment and are not put are risk because of their job. Unfortunately, however, work accidents still occur.

Can I Recover My Lost Earnings?

Our solicitors will ensure that you get the maximum amount of compensation for your injuries. As well as compensation for your pain and suffering, we can recover any money you have lost as a result of your accident, including your lost earnings. Often this is a huge relief for our clients, as workplace accidents sometimes mean you cannot return to work immediately, if at all. This loss of income can be devastating, potentially having a series of knock-on effects.

Will I Lose My Job?

People are often wary of making work accident claims for two reasons. Firstly, they are concerned that they might lose their job. Secondly, they fear that their employer will have to personally pay for their compensation and legal fees. However, you must not worry about either of these things. Your employer is not allowed to treat you any differently for making a personal injury claim. Also, your employer is obliged to have insurance, which will cover the cost of any work accident claims.
