No Win No Fee Accident at Work Compensation Claims
Up to 200,000 serious industrial accidents take place in the UK every year. If you have been injured in an accident at work you may be entitled to make a work accident compensation claim on a no win no fee basis .
I have many years experience helping people recover compensation for injuries caused by accidents at work due to negligence or breaches of Health and Safety regulations.
Even if the accident was caused by a work colleague, you may be entitled to make a work accident compensation claim against your employers under their employer's liability insurance cover.
There are regulations in place that govern how your employer should behave. These regulations deal with the state of the working environment and include the control and access to hazardous substances, manual handling, issues relating to noise levels in the workplace , and the amount of training to be given to employees. If any of these regulations are breached and this results in an accident or personal injury to an employee, then the employer will be liable.
Claiming Compensation for an Accident at Work
There are various types of work place accidents some of which are:
- Fork lift truck accidents
- Slips, Trips and Falls at work
- Dangerous machinery accidents
- Falls from height at work
- Injuries from manual handling
- Professional Negligence
I will advise you how much compensation you can claim for the pain and suffering that was a direct result of your work accident and we will explain in simple terms every step of how to make an accident at work compensation claim. You can also claim for past and future loss of earnings and loss of pension benefits. I can also help you to claim:
- Interim payments
- Payments for private medical treatment
- Company Sick Pay and private health and other insurance policy claims
- Benefit entitlement arising from incapacity for work
You don't have to worry about losing your job if you claim. The law protects employees in this situation and Clough & Willis has a team of experienced employment law solicitors who can make sure that your employment rights are protected.
I have put together the top ten most frequently asked questions from my clients about work place accident claims.
