Accident at Work
If you were injured as a result of an accident at your workplace we may be able to help you claim compensation for this..
How Can I Prove It?
Just because an accident happened at work, it does not automatically mean your employer has to compensate you. Claims for injuries at work can be quite technical because sometimes they involve analysing certain working practices, systems and machinery. In fact to succeed with a claim for an accident at work you must first be able to prove that the accident was the fault of your employer.
But How Will I know If It Was My Employers Fault?
Sometimes this is obvious, for example oil has been left on the floor and not cleaned up or fragments have shot out of a machine into your eye and no safety goggles were provided by your employer.

How Can We Help?
We are able to deal with your matter on a no win, no fee basis and we will cover all the costs of bringing the claim for you and so there will be nothing for you to pay.
Our fees are covered by the losing party and we do not take a success fee meaning that we will not take any money from you for our fees. However, if you do decide to take out an after the event insurance policy you will have to pay for this from your damages if you win.
In many cases we may even be able to arrange a home visit to go through your case.
