Accident at Work Compensation Claims Advice From Farleys Solicitors

As an employee, your employer owes you a high duty of care to ensure your safety at work. There is now a wide-ranging body of regulations which control Health & Safety in the workplace. Your employer is legally obliged to provide safe equipment, machinery and plant along with adequately trained fellow workers. If your employer has breached this duty of care or one of these regulations, then they may be liable to you if you have suffered an injury as a result in the last 3 years.

Common Accident at Work Claims

In some cases, it may be that your employer is not the cause of your accident. However, your employer is under a duty to take care to provide competent fellow workers, and so they will still be liable for the negligence caused by another employee.

The law provides that court proceedings must be issued in respect of any claim for personal injury within 3 years of the accident, except in exceptional circumstances.

Take our free assessment to find out if you have an accident at work claim, or call us on 0333 331 5441.

We will advise you on the evidence and information we will need in order to win your case. The earlier you contact us after the accident, the better, as it may be necessary for us to inspect the scene of the accident, take any photographs or diagrams that are necessary, and interview any witnesses.

We will then arrange for you to be medically examined by an expert who will assess your injuries, in order that the correct figure can be calculated to compensate you fully for your injuries and other losses.
