If you work with hazardous or toxic substances and you have found yourself injured, suffering from health problems or you have been diagnosed with a terminal illness as a result of your employer's neglect, you are entitled to make a claim for compensation.Hazardous Substances
Your employer is responsible for ensuring your safety at work. If they have not taken appropriate action to do so, they may be found to have acted negligently and so be responsible for your injury.
If your employer has failed to protect you, resulting in an assault or attack, then you may be able to make a claim for compensation against your employer’s insurance policy.Assault At Work
An employer is under a duty to ensure that you are safe whilst you are at work. They must carry out appropriate risk assessments and take the necessary precautions to avoid a fall occurring, particularly when the only way the work can be performed is from a height.
Falling from a height and being hit by falling objects tops the list when it comes to the causes of the most common workplace accidents in the UK.Falling From Height
If you have been injured in an accident at work, you may be entitled to claim for personal injury compensation. This can include partial or total deafness or blindness.
It is an employer's duty to try and eradicate the risk of an accident at the source before resorting to personal protective equipment (PPE). But PPE should only be supplied by the employer as a last resort.Sight Or Hearing
If you are successful in your claim, you will be awarded damages for your pain, suffering and loss of amenity which will be assessed and based upon the medical evidence that is obtained in your case. You can also claim special damages, and these are based upon your out-of-pocket expenses.
We have a long history of helping people to get the help they need and compensation they deserve.
