“Very good, quick and professional service. I couldn’t ask for more.”

As niche specialists in personal injury claims who have helped claimants get millions of pounds in compensation, at Grieves Solicitors we know the key questions our clients tend to ask:

What Type Of Workplace Accident Claims Can Be Made?

It might surprise you to learn just how broad and varied the types of workplace accidents that can lead to claims really are. For instance, you might be entitled to compensation if you have experienced:

  • A slip, trip, or fall – on everything from dangerous surfaces to spillages to heights that should have been better protected or prevented.
  • Lifting or carrying-related issues – potentially due to a lack of required training or workplace risk assessments related to manual handling.
  • Equipment-related injuries – caused by tools, machinery, or other equipment (including everything from ladders to Personal Protective Equipment or PPE) being limited, missing, poorly maintained, or dangerous.
  • Specific industry-related injuries – such as those caused by agricultural accidents or construction machinery.
  • Dangerous working practices – this covers a huge range of circumstances, even those that seem fairly innocuous (such as airborne flour particles in a bakery kitchen).
  • Acts of violence – from a co-worker, customer, or someone in a position of authority over you if your employer failed to take steps to prevent it.
  • Exposure – to harmful or dangerous substances of any kind. Or to any substances or workplace conditions that are harmful in the long term.

This list is by no means exhaustive. If you think you may be entitled to compensation for any pain, suffering, or injury you have experienced in the workplace, the simplest solution is always to get in touch with us.

With over 76 years of experience helping people who have suffered an accident at work, our solicitors will provide simple straightforward – and free – advice to guide you in your claim.

Will My Workplace Accident Claim Succeed?

This is probably the most important reason to contact specialist solicitors after an accident at work. Is making a claim really likely to succeed?

The key will always be whether your employer was negligent in their duty of care to you. If so, you will likely need to work with a legal specialist to answer questions such as:

  • Could your situation have been predicted? Was it?
  • Did your employer take necessary or reasonable precautions against it?
  • Do any Health & Safety regulations cover this circumstance?
  • Were Health & Safety rules or any other related laws properly followed?
  • Was your employer’s negligence the cause of your injury or condition?

Unless you have legal experience, it can be difficult to be sure of the answers to some of these questions and thus how likely your claim is to succeed.

That is why making a quick enquiry with a solicitor who specialises in accident at work claims is usually the simplest place to start. Especially if they offer a free, no-obligation initial consultation.

“I can’t think of any way you could improve your service as I have found everything from start to finish first class.”

Will My Employer Suffer If I Make A Claim?

Not everyone who makes a claim necessarily thinks badly of their employer. Many people even wish to continue with their work after making a successful claim.

If this sounds like you, it is important to note that you aren’t taking money away from your employer by making a claim:

  1. All UK employers are required to have Employer’s Liability Insurance
  2. This insurance protects them from just this type of claim
  3. In turn, this means it’s usually their insurance company that will pay your compensation

In addition, it is illegal for your employer to dismiss you for making a claim against them. Employers in the UK are required to make provisions for the safety and welfare of their employees.
