Work Accident Compensation

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 Compensation.

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

1. Providing safe systems of work
2. Providing safe premises
3. Providing plant, tools and equipment which are safe, properly maintained and suitable for the job
4. Providing competent employees
5. Providing adequate and appropriate personal equipment eg. goggles, ear protectors, gloves, hard hats, masks

6. Providing adequate and proper supervision and training

Work Accident 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 you can contact Cooks Legal who specialise in making a case for your work accident claim and we will be able to review your case.  We provide a Free Legal Assessment and will run your case on a no win on fee basis.

Pedestrian Fall from Bicycle
Miss H was knocked off her bicycle when her front tyre struck a loose paving stone jutting into the road. She sustained a head injury causing severe short term memory loss and mood swings. After 2 years her original Solicitors withdrew from the case as they believed her claim had less than a 50% chance of succeeding. Miss H contacted Cooks who agreed to represent her on a No win No fee basis.

Within 18 months the matter was resolved and Miss H received a settlement cheque of £300,000.00. She told us
"Thank you Cooks for believing in me and my claim. My Solicitor was always available to me and happy to explain each step of the process. The only surprise was how much you managed to obtain for me without the need to go to trial. I will tell all my friends about your great service."
