Accidents at work

Every year thousands of people suffer personal and psychiatric injury at work. Despite all the modern advances in health and safety in the workplace, many people's lives are affected by a work-related injury.

Accident compensation claims are payable if it can be shown that the accident was someone else's fault. The fault could be with your employer, a fellow employee, or a visitor to your workplace.
Sometimes it is obvious that your accident was someone else's fault. In other cases we may need to obtain expert evidence about the practices or processes at your workplace.

Most common types of accident are:

 - slipping on wet floors

 - tripping over something, such as computer cables, boxes or tools left           around

 - falls from height, such as from ladders, roofs, scaffolding

 - lifting something that is too big or too heavy

 - exposure to chemicals

Blake Lapthorn will advise you initially free of charge.
