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 which imposes a responsibility on your employer not limited to the following:-
Undertake risk assessments of your job role and implement appropriate steps to minimise risks to your health and safety.
Provide safe systems of working
Undertake appropriate training for employees for the job role performed.
Provide suitable personal protective equipment for the job role.
Should your employer not follow the health and safety procedures and you are injured as a result, you may be able to bring an accident at work claim. It is also possible to bring an accident at work claim should an accident make your existing condition or injury worse.
Browse through a selection of the accident at work claims we have settled for our clients. Please get in touch if you would like more information about our experience with certain accident at work claims.
The Limitation Act 1980 only allows an injured person a limited time to commence their claim before their right to claim is lost. The time limit for starting a workplace accident claim is usually three years from the date of injury however there can be exceptions to this.
If you’ve been injured whilst at work, it’s best to contact us as soon as possible to ensure we can begin your claim within the relevant time limits.
Wherever possible, Farleys will pursue your claim on a ‘no win no fee’ basis, meaning that you won’t be asked to pay a penny if your claim is unsuccessful.
With more than six decades (and counting!) of experience to our name, here at Farleys our solicitors have extensive experience in handling all types of personal injury and accident at work claims.
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.
We know how stressful these situations can be, and we know that describing the circumstances of your case can sometimes be incredibly distressing, especially if the event itself was particularly traumatic. That’s why we always take care to give you all the time and space you need.
Choosing the right solicitor is also crucial to both the success of your claim and the amount of compensation you are awarded. Farleys are the right choice, and our solicitors will do everything in their power to ensure that you are awarded the compensation you deserve.
If you have had an accident in the workplace or a factory, or are suffering an ongoing illness because of your working environment, then you may have a claim. Contact an expert lawyer at Farleys now on 0333 331 4065 or you can email us.
