What to do if you’ve had an accident at work
You have the right to safety within your workplace and with many Health and Safety laws and Regulations in place in the UK, workplace accidents should be a rare occurrence.

We understand that you may be anxious about claiming against your employer. Before processing your claim for an injury at work we will ensure you are aware of possible repercussions which may arise as a result of claiming against your employer. This will help you make an informed decision about pursuing your accident at work claim.
We will support you through the whole process and your accident at work lawyer will establish if your employer wasn’t following the Health and Safety guidelines or was being negligent.
How can an accident at work solicitor help me claim compensation?
You can claim for an injury you have suffered at work if it was not your fault. If you are self-employed or a casual worker you may still be able to claim compensation if you are considered an employee under UK law.
Our specialist team can talk through your situation with you over the phone, or face to face if you prefer. We can provide you with some initial free advice to help you decide if you wish to proceed with making an accident at work claim.
Most employers will have Employers’ Liability Insurance to cover any compensation which may be awarded to you.
We understand that winning compensation can make things easier with some injuries requiring people to take time off work, travel for treatment or make alternations in their homes. Our dedicated team will do everything they can to ensure your life can return to normal as soon as possible.
No win no fee
Your claim may be eligible for a no win no fee funding agreement, which means:
- If you win your case your opponent will pay the majority of your legal costs. Any legal costs and the lawyer’s success fee not paid by your opponent will be deducted from the compensation that you receive.
- If you lose your case, you won’t pay anything.
How long do I have to make the claim?
You usually have three years from the date of the injury or knowing about your injury, to pursue a claim. There are some exceptions, which we can advise you on.
Speak to us as soon as you can, so our personal injury lawyers can start helping you through the process of claiming compensation for your accident at work and getting any other support you need.

Every injury is different, so it is important to get expert advice from lawyers who really understand the unique nature of each workplace injury claim.
The amount you can claim will depend on a number of factors, such as the severity of your injury, as well as any financial losses you have suffered or lifestyle changes you have made as a result.
