Have you had an accident at work?
If you have been injured at work and it was not your fault you may be able to claim compensation. Injuries and work related illnesses are often caused by employers failing to follow health and safety rules. You may be able to claim against their employer’s liability insurance.
What kind of accidents can I claim for?
Although there are a number of ways that you can sustain an injury that was not your fault these are some of the accident at work claims that we typically handle for our clients:-
