Have you had an accident in your place of work that wasn’t your fault?
Have you suffered illness whilst carrying out your duties at work?
Has your health started to deteriorate whilst working in the UK?
Employers here in the UK are legally obligated to provide a safe working environment for all of their staff but unfortunately, some employers still fall short of what is required.
If your employer has not fulfilled their obligations, you may be entitled to make a claim for compensation if you have been injured as a result of:
- working in an unsafe environment
- using defective equipment at work
- lack of proper training; or
- due to the actions of an irresponsible co-worker
Our specialist personal injury team here at IMD Solicitors will work hard to ensure you receive the maximum compensation for not just your injury and ongoing care but also for any loss of earnings and other expenses incurred.
What to do if you have an accident at work
- Report the accident to your supervisor or manager
- Make sure your accident is recorded in your workplace accident book
- Take photos and video evidence
- Go to your GP and/or hospital
- Make a diary entry of all your symptoms
- Keep a record of your expenses and other financial losses
- Contact IMD Solicitors
Important information about making a claim against your employer
Many people that suffer accidents in the workplace hesitate to make a claim because they fear that it will cause problems between themselves and their employer. You should not have to worry or feel uncomfortable about making a claim if your employer has neglected their responsibility to keep you safe as there are laws in place to ensure that your employer cannot dismiss you as a direct result of you making a claim for compensation against them.
Employers have to have a valid insurance policy in place which will cover them in the event of a member of staff having an accident during the course of their work. As a result of this, there is no need for us to deal directly with your employer as it will be their insurer who will ultimately pay your compensation to you.
No Win No Fee
In the majority of cases, we offer our services on a “NO WIN, NO FEE” basis.
This means that there’s nothing for you to pay upfront, and that you won’t have to pay any legal fees if your claim isn’t successful.
If successful, part of your compensation will be paid to us to cover our fees. This cost will be a percentage of the compensation awarded to you at the end of your case. This percentage is a usual and standard charge throughout the legal industry.
