I am delighted with the outcome of my claim and can’t thank you enough for all the hard work that you put in. Everything went so smoothly and all I had to do was sign some papers and everything was taken care of. Anytime I had any concerns I knew I could call and my mind was always put at rest. You can never know how much this means to me and I am so grateful. If anything ever happened to me again then I would come straight to you.

With talks of a recent boom in ‘compensation culture’, you may be wary about taking steps towards a compensation claim. These feelings may be increased if pursuing a claim means making a stand against an employer you are loyal to. Before you turn your back on the compensation you deserve, consider the following reasons for claiming following an accident in the workplace.
If you’ve recently returned to work after suffering a personal injury in the workplace, the last thing you’ll want is to create tension with your employer. One of the most common misconceptions about workplace accident claims is that your boss will be responsible for footing the bill. This isn’t the case. Legally, all employers must have insurance to cover their employees in the event of an accident. Your employer will be paying out large insurance premiums in case an employee wants to claim compensation following an accident. They should not be left out of pocket.
If you dread the thought of lengthy court cases and the hassle of completing paperwork from your sickbed, you needn’t worry. The claims process is quick and straightforward. A team of professional lawyers will take care of all the complicated legal matters and leave you to recover or get on with your life in peace. It takes just a matter of minutes for a solicitor to start the claims process once they have assessed the likelihood of your case succeeding. You will be advised of the information you will need to source and provide your legal team during your claim.
As a result of the ‘no win, no fee’ claims process, you will not be left out of pocket for making a compensation claim. We will not take on a case unless we feel it has a good chance of being successful.
The cost of having an accident in the workplace can go far beyond the emotional stress. A personal injury often takes its toll on personal or family finances too. Your usual salary may be affected if you are unable to work. Alternatively, you may have racked up large bills on medication, rehabilitation treatment or transport. A successful compensation claim will reimburse you for these expenses and provide additional financial help. This will help to compensate for the inconvenience and distress caused by your illness.
Although money cannot repair the pain and upset caused by a personal injury, financial compensation can bring much-needed closure following a traumatic accident that was not your fault. Until you have secured the compensation you deserve, it is common to feel that the individual responsible for your personal injury has simply ‘got away with it’.
If you were injured in a workplace accident that wasn’t your fault, it is likely that you can claim. There are hundreds of different scenarios that can lead to substantial personal injury. Whether you work in the relatively safe environment of an office or on a more hazardous construction site, injuries can still occur. Here are a few examples of common causes of accidents in the workplace:
