JPH Law has a department that specializes in accident at work compensation claims.
We have specialist lawyers experienced in handling substantial compensation claims in virtually every type of workplace.
If you are unfortunate enough to suffer an accident at work, you may be able to make a personal injury claim for compensation.
Accident At Work claims we have handled successfully include accidents involving:
- Defective machinery or dangerous machinery
- Slips or trips on debris or dangerous surfaces
- Injuries involving lifting or manual handling
- Injuries suffered in the construction industry
- Exposure to harmful and dangerous substances
- Employees exposed to violent attacks by patients or customers
The Health and Safety Executive in GB estimate that individual employees lose around five hundred and fifty eight million pounds a year in reduced income and additional expenditure as a result of accidents at work.
In addition victims and their families suffer further in the form of pain, grief and loss of amenity. We have teams of lawyers specialising in accident claim at work areas such as the construction industry, injuries involving lifting or manual handling, exposure to harmful or dangerous substances, accidents arising from falls, trips or slips, and employees exposed to violent attacks or physical assaults.
Contrary to public perception, a high proportion of the victims of slipping and tripping accidents suffer fractures.
Your employer must try to ensure that you carry out your work in the safest way possible bearing in mind the type of job that you do, the materials and equipment that you work with and the tasks involved. Employers need to ensure that the place, or places, where you work and their premises in general are safe for their staff. The most obvious example of a breach of this duty would be if office floors were left wet or cluttered with files or cables, on which employees slipped or tripped up. But employers are also responsible for the heating and ventilation of their premises, the lighting and even the car park.
Our solicitors provide thorough accident at work compensation advice, information on employment-related issues and benefit advice where appropriate.
