Personal Injury

Personal Injury


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.

Partner, Personal Injury and Clinical Negligence

Gerard Sanders

Gerard qualified with a large regional firm in 1991. Since 1995 he has specialised exclusively on claimant personal injury work. More recently he has focused on complex higher value clinical negligence and personal injury claims.

His greatest success has been winning the high profile case of Delaney-v-The Secretary of State for Transport where after almost 9 years of litigation involving two Court of Appeal hearings and an application to the Supreme Court he was finally able to establish that the Motor Insurers’ Bureau Agreement was incompatible with EEC law. As a direct result of the decision in this case the agreement has had to be amended to the benefit of many future victims of uninsured drivers.

Gerard is a member of the Law Society’s Personal Injury Panel and he appears in the latest Legal 500 rankings in the fields of personal injury and clinical negligence.

Gerard’s other professional qualifications include a Diplome D’Etudes Juridiques Francaises from Strasbourg University.
