Accidents at work

Accidents at work are common. And they don’t happen just in dangerous workplaces; many workplace accidents occur in offices.

If you have had an accident at work, compensation could be due. You should speak to a solicitor about making an accident at work claim.

Types of accidents at work

Common types of accident at work claims are for the following types of accidents:

  • Slips, trips and falls
  • Repetitive strain injury (RSI)
  • Heavy lifting strains
  • Electrical hazards
  • Machinery injuries
  • Back injury from poor ergonomics or unsafe working practices
  • Falling items in industrial settings

No matter what type of accident at work, UK accident solicitors can see if you have a claim.

Employer's health and safety obligations

Employers have a duty of care to ensure the health, safety and welfare of all of their employees. If they fail to carry out this duty of care, and you are injured as a result from an accident at work, they will have to pay you compensation.

In many circumstances, reporting accidents at work is a legal requirement. You should discuss reporting accidents at work with your solicitor.

Many employees are reluctant to claim compensation from their employer, usually because they are worried about unsettling things at work. This is an unnecessary concern, however, because employers will have Employers’ Liability Insurance that will cover any compensation and legal costs that they incur anyway.
