Work Accident Claims

Work accidents result in injuries to thousands of employees in the UK every year, ranging from minor cuts or bruises to serious injuries and fatalities. Where an injury is caused by negligence on the part of an employer or fellow employee the injured person is likely to have a legal right to work accident claim compensation.

All employers have a duty to protect their workers from injury or disease by, amongst other things :-

  • Providing safe systems of work
  • Providing safe premises
  • Providing plant, tools and equipment which are safe, properly maintained and suitable for the job
  • Providing competent employees
  • Providing adequate and appropriate personal equipment eg. goggles, ear protectors, gloves, hard hats, masks
  • Providing adequate and proper supervision and training

Compensation claims may be brought against an employer for breach of statutory or Common Law duty or, frequently, both. A breach of statutory duty may also result in a fine whether or not an accident results.

If you have been injured in a work accident in the last three years and would like a free legal assessment of your case, please complete the Application Form. We will handle your claim on a No Win No Fee basis at no cost to you.

Trip on highway
Mrs J tripped on a pothole whilst crossing a service road running parallel to a main road, fracturing her shoulder, wrist and ankle. The Council initially denied full liability for her accident alleging Mrs J was partly to blame for not avoiding the pothole. Cooks arranged a Conference with a barrister and on his advice rejected this. After intense negotiations Mrs J was awarded £17,000.00 she said:
"I had help from the start regarding my claim and found the advice very reassuring. I have never had to make a claim before so was apprehensive but you did a lot to alleviate my worries. Thanks again for all your help and support."
Mrs J from London
