Accidents at Work

Personal Injury Solicitors in Gloucestershire

If you are employed in the UK, your employer has a legal duty to take reasonable steps to protect your health and safety. Your employer must also make sure have received any appropriate training, and that you have been given any necessary protective equipment.  Your employer has a responsibility to keep you safe, so if you were injured at work, even if this was due to another colleague’s actions or negligence, you could be entitled to make a personal injury compensation claim.  Our team of workplace accident solicitors have the knowledge and expertise in this area of law to help you get the compensation you deserve.

A Dedicated Team of Personal Injury Specialists

This can be a complex area of law and we understand that making a claim against your employer will be a daunting prospect. Our workplace accident lawyers have many decades of experience between them and are recognised in their field for their expertise in Employer’s liability. We can help on a wide range of workplace accident matters, including in the following types of claims:

  • Construction site accidents
  • Falls from height
  • Factory & warehouse accidents
  • Incorrect work practices
  • Lack of appropriate PPE
  • Inadequate supervision
  • Inadequate training
  • Lack of Risk Assessment
  • Defective equipment
  • Health & safety violations

We realise you may be reluctant to seek compensation against your employer, worried that they will suffer a financial loss due to the claim or you are fearful of being treated unfairly by them afterward.

However, compensation awarded, in most accident at work claims, is paid out by the employer’s liability insurance provider, and not by the employer. Furthermore, it is unlawful for an employer to discriminate or treat an employee differently because the employee is making a work accident claim.
