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 a Solicitor who specialises in Work Accident Claims who will be able to review your case.  Many often provide a Free Legal Assessment.

Accident in Supermarket
Mrs H was shopping for a small fold out table in a Supermarket. She reached to take one when the stack collapsed falling onto her right foot. X-rays to her foot showed no fracture but she was still forced to use crutches for a few weeks afterwards.

Within 6 months of being instructed Cooks had obtained a settlement offer of £2,000.00 which Mrs H was delighted to accept. She said
"My Granddaughter found your website and recommended you to me. Thank you for all your efforts for my accident claim, I appreciate your kindness. I received my cheque today and will be taking my grandchildren away on holiday with the money you recovered for me"
Mrs H from Devon
