Accidents at Work Claims Solicitors

The laws regarding safety in the workplace are there to protect you and your colleagues. If your employer has put you at risk of an injury at work and you have suffered as a result, let our Personal Injury team help you.

Your employer has a legal responsibility to protect your health, safety and welfare at work. They should also have insurance in place that covers them when employees are injured during the course of their employment.

An injury like this could leave you unable to work and pay bills or provide for your family. Our Personal Injury Solicitors can help.

Injuries at work can include the following:

  • Slips and trips
  • Machinery-caused injuries
  • Chemical induced injuries
  • Falls from height such as accidents involving scaffolding or ladders
  • Injuries caused by being hit by moving or falling objects

Our Personal Injury team can help you make a compensation claim for an accident at work. We can help with recovering lost income, arranging treatment and its funding, arranging funding of any private operations. We can also obtain an early payment as part of your settlement, following an accident at work.

After The Event Policy ‘ATE’: After the Event Insurance is an insurance policy taken out when you sign the No Win No Fee Agreement. It protects you throughout the claim from being responsible for any payments if the claim is not successful.

Causation: Establishing the link between negligence/breaches of statutory duty and the injury/illness suffered.

Liability: Legal responsibility for acts or omissions.

Negligence: Failing to use the appropriate level of care and competence required in the circumstances. A negligent act or omission may result in somebody sustaining an injury.

No Win No Fee (CFA): No Win No Fee Agreements (also referred to as Conditional Fee Agreements) mean that solicitors take no payment for their work unless they win the case. If your claim is not successful, then you may be liable for the other party’s legal costs, but your ATE policy will provide insurance to cover that eventuality. If you win the case, you will receive compensation and the majority of your legal costs will be recoverable from the other side.

Occupational Illness: Diseases or medical conditions which arise as a result of exposure at work to substances such as asbestos.

Quantum: The value of your claim.

Schedule of Loss: A document which sets out the financial losses sustained as a direct result of suffering injury or disease e.g. loss of earnings, travelling expenses, cost of care.

Success Fee: The fee we charge which is based upon the amount of time we spend working on your claim. It cannot exceed 25% of the damages you are awarded.
