Case study

Our client, an engineer, was at work when a large metal cabinet collapsed onto him. He was immediately conveyed to hospital where he was diagnosed with a serious injury to his knee. Despite being in his early 20’s, he would have ongoing pain and motability problems. Compensation was agreed in the sum of just under £400,000.

If you have been injured in an accident at work or working elsewhere you may have an accident at work claim against a group or the individual responsible, including your employer.

Even if your accident hasn’t caused you to take time off work, you can still claim accident compensation for the physical pain and suffering of your injury…

Employers are required by law to have Employer Liability Insurance and the insurance company will deal with your compensation claim for injury and losses, including loss of earnings. Even if your accident hasn’t caused you to take time off work, you can still claim accident compensation for the physical pain and suffering of your injury.

Accidents at work can happen in various ways and even if you think no-one was necessarily to blame, you may have an accident claim involving for example defective equipment or machinery, inadequate training in the use of machinery, lifting heavy objects, using dangerous machinery, faulty, damaged or slippery flooring, careless acts by other workers causing an accident, or a lack of safety clothing.

Your workplace injuries may have a significant effect on your life, no matter how small you think they are at the time…

If you’ve been injured at work in the past three years and the accident was caused by negligence on the part of your employer you could be eligible to make an accident claim. Accident claims lawyers at Claims For You are here to help you after your accident so contact us today to discuss your situation. We will be able to advise you whether your claim is likely to be successful and how much you could be awarded. By assessing your case we can put together a compensation claim.

Your workplace injuries may have a significant effect on your life, no matter how small you think they are at the time of the accident. Many injuries take a long time to heal and may prevent you from carrying out your day to day work or interacting with others in the same way you used to. All of these factors are taken into consideration.

It is essential for us to understand whether an employer has maintained the correct health and safety standards. It should also be remembered that it is the responsibility of the employee to abide by health and safety regulations at all times. Our personal injury solicitors at Claims For You have considerable experience in accident claims so we can walk you through the process. Speak to us when you require the expertise of accident claims lawyers.

Accident at work FAQs

You can claim compensation for the injuries that you have suffered and the effect of the injuries on your daily life. You can also claim for any out of pocket losses or expenses that have been incurred as a result of the accident. The most common losses claimed are loss of earnings, travel costs, medical costs and damage to property or clothing.

Since our firm was established 13 years ago, we prided ourselves on our clients receiving 100% of their compensation. As solicitors, we claim our legal fees from our opponents on top of any compensation and therefore, we gave you the guarantee that our clients receive 100% compensation.

However, following Government changes which came into force on the 1 April 2013, we are now not able to recover all of our legal fees from our opponent and therefore only on successful cases, we do make a small charge from our client’s compensation.

Therefore, if you are successful in your claim there will be a charge of up to 20% (although in many cases it may not be as much as this) of your compensation. If for whatever reason, you are unsuccessful we will make no charge for our work and therefore our agreement remains a No Win No Fee agreement.

We think our small deduction is very competitive and keeping in the tradition of ensuring clients get the maximum, and as much of the compensation as possible.

With our high success rate and the fact that we get 28% more compensation for our clients than the industry average, Claims For You is a great choice when looking for personal injury solicitors.

It is not legally justifiable for your employer to dismiss you for making an accident claim. It could amount to unfair dismissal.

It’s also important to remember that your employer is required by law to take out insurance cover against staff accidents. This means that your employer’s insurance company will pay your compensation, not your employer.

Generally, the speed at which your claim may be settled depends on how promptly the Insurance company replies and negotiates with us. We find that most claims can be processed within a matter of months. At Claims For You, we pride ourselves on our speedy service as many of our former clients can attest to (please visit our Testimonials page).
