If you have had a workplace injury but you are not sure how you would begin the claims process, then our team could help you. There are two main reasons that you might need to make a claim with a personal injury solicitor for an injury related to your workplace.
The first of these is due to an accident in the workplace that has resulted in you being injured. If you have had an accident in your place of work that might have been prevented then you may be able to make a claim for compensation. Your employer is a responsible for protecting you from those predictable accidents in the workplace that might take place whilst you are employed by them. If they have not done this and you have been injured as a result then you may be able to make a work injury compensation claim.
The second type of claim deals with illnesses or conditions that are work-related. It is part of the responsibility that your employer has in terms of health and safety that they protect you from these foreseeable risks that could result in a work-related injury or condition occurring. These types of condition could include industrial deafness, RSI, COPD and more. If steps have not been taken by your employer to reduce these risks and you later develop a condition or illness as a result of this you may be able to pursue a claim.
Often employees may be nervous about making a claim for a workplace injury because they are concerned this may jeopardise the future of their job. A no win no fee solicitor from our panel may be able to talk to you about this including discussing the steps you could take if, as a highly unlikely result of making a claim, you are dismissed.
