Accidents and injuries at work
“Just wanted to say a huge thank you both for successfully settling my claim. Considering some solicitors before I came to you said I didn't have a claim, you have restored my faith.”
If you have been involved in an accident at work that resulted in an injury, you may be entitled to compensation if it was the fault of your employer, another employee or a visitor to your workplace. Our Personal Injury team has lawyers who are experts in dealing with such compensation claims.
The most common types of accident leading to injuries that we deal with include:
- 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
Sometimes it is a clear cut case that the accident was someone else's fault, but if there is any doubt then you need expert solicitors such as those in our Personal Injury team to launch an investigation and obtain expert evidence about the practices or processes at your workplace.
