Accidents at Work
Having an accident at work can be a painful and upsetting experience. Your injuries may have been relatively minor, more serious or you may have had to face a loved one losing their life after an accident at work. Whatever the circumstances of your accident at work we can help you.
Your employer is required by law to ensure that you are kept safe whilst you are at work and as a result if you have an accident at work and your employer is responsible, then you are able to make a claim for compensation for your injuries.
We do understand that you will be hurt, upset and probably worried about your job too but making a claim for compensation against your employer does not mean that your job is at risk, as your employer is not able to dismiss you for claiming compensation for your accident.
