No matter how you were injured, or the type of accident – at work, on your bike, in a road traffic accident – if it wasn’t your fault or your employer did not take adequate steps to prevent it, then you are entitled to compensation. If your injuries are serious and have life-long consequences we will fight your cause tirelessly because it’s not just about the money. The provision of early appropriate rehabilitation and continuing support is our priority and that is where a large part of any compensation award will be spent.
Accidents at work can not only result from immediate and obvious dangers like a slip, trip or fall but can also be a consequence of inadequate training, a lack of the proper safety equipment or faulty and dangerous machinery. However you were injured at work, our expert solicitors can help you make an accident at work claim to get the rehabilitation, care and support you deserve.
An industrial disease can be caused by exposure to asbestos, chemicals and dust, noise and vibration or repetitive physical actions. If you or a loved one suffered harm because your employer failed to protect your health in the workplace, you may be entitled to make an industrial disease claim.
Cancer is not a single disease with a single cause or treatment It develops when cells in the body grow in an uncontrolled and abnormal way. There are numerous types of cancer each with its own name and treatment and different types of cancer have their different sets of causes.
