Accidents at Work
To avoid an accident at work occurring your employer must try to ensure that you carry out your work in the safest way possible bearing in mind the type of job that you do, the materials and equipment that you work with and the tasks involved. Employers need to ensure that the place, or places, where you work and their premises in general are safe for their staff. Victims and their families suffer in the form of pain, grief and loss of amenity as a result of an accident at work. We specialise in accident at work claim areas such as the construction industry, injuries involving lifting or manual handling, exposure to harmful or dangerous substances, accidents arising from falls, trips or slips, and employees exposed to violent attacks or physical assaults.
Trips, Slips & Falls
Trips, slips and falls are amongst some of the most common causes of personal injury. It is very easily done but some trips, slips and falls can cause serious and life threatening injuries. The more serious injuries can have a devastating effect on your life causing you to give up your job or leading to you being incapable of working. The majority of trips, slips and falls compensation claims are due to defective pavements on a public highway, slips in supermarkets and shops, playground accidents or trips and falls on private property, council houses or in the workplace.
Holiday Sickness Claims
