More accidents happen at work in the UK than anywhere else. Although safety standards have increased enormously in recent times, accidents at work continue to happen on a daily basis.
As well as falls, injuries involving machinery, injuries while lifting or carrying heavy or awkward loads, workers can also suffer from work-related conditions such as dermatitis, repetitive straining injuries, asbestos related conditions, hearing loss and tinnitus, stress related conditions and vision impairment. Often employees can be reluctant to seek legal advice because of fears about legal costs or about the possible repercussions for their employment if they make a claim against their employer.
There is no need to let concern about legal costs deter you from contacting us. We have extensive experience in recovering compensation for people who have been injured in the course of their work or have suffered from an work-related illness or disease and we will be happy to take the time to hear your story and to provide you with our expert advice on your case with no obligation.
The fact is that all employers are legally obliged to have Employer’s Liability Insurance and any employer who victimises an employee for bringing a legitimate claim in respect of illness or injury is likely to be breaching employment law and leaving themselves open to a further claim from the employee.
