Work Accident Personal Injury Claims

It is very important to find an experienced Solicitor to deal with your work accident personal injury claims. Work accident personal injury claims usually arise in case of work related accidents like those occurring at construction sites and those occurring due to the use of defective machines. Work related accidents can occur when an employer fails to maintain proper standards of safety at the workplace. This amounts to negligence by the employer and they will be responsible for such accidents and the resulting suffering of the worker. Employers have no legal right to terminate your employment because you are pursuing a compensation claim. 

Injuries at work can occur due to the following causes:

  • Injuries at work can occur when an employee is not properly guided about the use of dangerous machines.
  • It is the duty of an employer to train his employee and give them adequate instructions with regard to working with hazardous equipment.
  • Injuries at work can also result when an employee gets impaired while carrying or lifting heavy objects.
  • An employee can suffer a personal injury following a slip, trip or fall.

An employee can sue his employer for work accident personal injury claims arising out of the employer’s negligence. Cooks Legal proffer specialised legal help to employees who have been victims of work related injuries. We will assist you to get monetary help in the form of compensation. The compensation amount depends on the income that you have lost as a result of the accident and the extent of your injuries. If you have suffered any permanent disfigurement like loss of limbs and an inability to take care of your family then this can also affect the amount of compensation you receive. Severe accidents at work can involve loss of limbs and also death.

Cooks Legal will understand the work conditions in which the accident took place and how the employer was responsible. We work on a no win no fee basis to get you the compensation you deserve.

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."
