Accidents at work

If you have had an accident at work you may be able to make a claim if you’ve been injured as a result of health and safety procedures not being followed, faulty equipment, premises or actions of a fellow employee.

We understand that contacting a law firm is daunting, especially when discussing a potential embarrassing and/or traumatic experience. However our Solicitors and specialists are approachable, friendly and down to earth.


Your employer has a legal duty to ensure you do not suffer accidents at work and they have a responsibility to:

  • Provide you with work and personal protective equipment
  • Ensure you’re fully trained for your position
  • Complete risk assessments
  • Manage business activities to minimise risks to your health and safety
  • Create safe working systems and environments

Legal Costs

Most claims we handle are on a ‘no win no fee’ basis, so if you do not succeed with your case you do not have to pay our costs.
