Accidents at Work
UK Health and Safety legislation is designed to protect employees and to reduce the risk of accident and injury in the workplace. If you have been involved in an accident at work then you may be entitled to claim compensation for your injuries and the associated financial losses, for example, loss of earnings whilst off work recovering from your injuries.
Health and Safety regulations cover all forms of workplace accidents and injury including:
- Working at Height
- Use of Machinery and Equipment
- Use of Safety Equipment
- Tripping and Slipping
As well as helping you ultimately to claim compensation, we can also help you with your private medical treatment costs and rehabilitation requirements, for example, for physiotherapy following the injury if necessary.
This may include private treatment arranged by and paid for by the Defendant, that is the employer's insurers or from an interim compensation payment paid to you whilst your claim is in process. This is to allow you to have the treatment on a private basis.
