Work Accident Claims
In contentious business, a solicitor may not calculate fees or other charges as a percentage or proportion of any award or settlement.
We will support you throughout the process at what is likely to be a very stressful time for you. The claim will be managed on your behalf and ultimately we will be seeking to recover compensation for any pain and suffering that you have incurred or may incur in the future.
As employees our employers have a legal obligation to us to ensure our health and safety while we are at work. If you have been injured at work due to the negligence of your employer you may be able to bring against them for the pain, suffering and injury caused. Not only do they have a legal obligation to ensure our health and safety whilst we are at work in order to maintain ongoing operations and protect their reputations, businesses also take this matter very seriously.
People often ask will I lose my job if I bring a workplace injury claim against my employer? You should absolutely not lose your job if you bring a claim against your employer. If you did so, this may be construed as an unfair or constructive dismissal. An employer will generally be insured to cover such matters and they will not wish the reputation damage of acting in such a way.
If you have suffered physical, emotional and financial injury as a result of the negligence of your employer it is entirely reasonable that you should be able to seek legal recourse.
To bring a claim against a negligent party for your injuries it will be necessary to prove;
- The party owed you a duty of care.
- The duty of care was breached.
- The breach of care lead to a work accident injury.
By allowing us to handle your claim on your behalf you can focus on what is most important to you which is recovery and care and your family.
