Accidents at Work
Don’t suffer in silence if you’ve had an accident at work. You may have a legal right to compensation, provided it’s less than three years since you were injured.
Our experienced solicitors can help you make a claim against your employer for the compensation you deserve.
We make claiming as easy as possible
We make claiming compensation from your employer as easy as possible. We ask you a few simple questions and, in most cases, we can tell you within minutes whether or not your claim is likely to be successful and even how much compensation you’re likely to receive.
Once we decide to go ahead with your claim, we move quickly to bring you as rapid a resolution as possible. And with our no win, no fee promise, you don’t have to pay us a single penny unless we win.
Pay outs for accidents at work can be considerable. For example:
Total loss of wrist function - up to £48,400
Finger injury compensation - up to £29,700
Simple leg fracture - up to £7,370
Mild back injury - up to £6,380
Can I claim?
The list of accidents you can claim compensation for is endless. It includes accidents on construction sites, scaffolding, falling from ladders, mishaps at the office, laboratory or factory, while driving on the job and many more scenarios. You can also claim for an injury you receive due to another employee’s incompetence.
The important factor is that your employer must have failed to comply with health & safety standards or to train you or other workers effectively.
NB Employers are not always at fault. If you’re an employer who has been unfairly accused, we can help you too.

The life of a farmer can be hazardous. Lifting heavy loads, working with animals and working with dangerous machinery means that farms have historically had a poor health and safety record and where accidents do occur they can often be serious. In fact, up to one person a week has been known to die from farm related accidents!
A farm is a work place just like any other and if you have suffered an injury that was not your fault then you may be able to claim compensation, and usually on a No Win No Fee basis.
Types of Common Farm Accidents include:
• Manual handling of heavy loads leading to back problems, slipped discs or damage to muscles.
• Working at height accidents
• Machinery and vehicle accidents – tractors, fork lift trucks, harvesters, diggers, quad bikes etc
• Chemicals and hazardous substances
• Noise induced hearing loss cases
• Vibrating tools – leading to VWF (vibration white finger)

• Animal related injuries
• Death from a farm related accident
