When we go to work we should be safe in the knowledge that our employers will do all they can to protect us from injury and illness. Sadly, thousands of workers are injured in accidents at work or develop a work-related illness every year.
Injuries and illnesses can be caused by anything from a lack of training, to faulty equipment to exposure to dangerous chemicals and substances. If you have suffered an injury or illness as a result of your working conditions, you may be able to make a personal injury compensation claim.
Even if you are a casual worker or consider yourself to be self-employed, you may well still be able to make a claim.
We have specialist teams of solicitors who are dedicated to helping people claim compensation after an accident at work or a workplace illness. Over the years we’ve helped thousands of others to claim, so you can be sure that we the experience needed to help you get the compensation you deserve.
How Compensation Can Help You
Suffering an injury or illness at work can have serious consequences for you and your family. When we work with you to make a claim, we will make sure you get the maximum amount of compensation to:
- Repay you for any lost earnings or future loss of earnings if your injury or illness is so bad that you have to take time off sick or cannot return to work
- Pay for private medical treatment to help you to recover as quickly as possible
- Reflect the fact that you have suffered pain and injury because your employer did not take proper care of you
- Repay you for any expenses that you would not have otherwise had to pay, such as the cost of travel to hospital appointments.
