Accidents at Work

If you are involved in an accident at work, you need to use lawyers who really understand the issues that arise in these cases. For example obtaining witness statements from work colleagues may be a challenge if they fear that their own job prospects will be affected.

Our experts will act quickly to:

  • preserve machinery/equipment as it was at the time of the accident
  • photograph equipment and the work environment before it is altered
  • ensure that documents such as maintenance/training records do not “miraculously” disappear

As well as investigating whether your  employer has been negligent in failing to provide a safe system of work, we will advise on whether any regulations have been breached including those relating to:

  • work and safety equipment /  protective clothing
  • lifting and other manual handling operations
  • the carrying out of risk assessments
  • health and safety training
  • hazardous substances
  • working at heights
  • display screen equipment

We have many years of experience  dealing with accident claims relating to a number of different work environments including factories, offices, shops and building sites. If there is a related employment claim we will also be able to handle that for you.

To speak to a specialist personal injury lawyer who can help with an accident in the workplace / employer liability claim or any other type of personal injury claim contact us now by calling, emailing or requesting a callback.
