Suffering an injury at work not only causes great pain and personal distress, but you may also have to take time off and be unable to earn money for that period.
Whatever your job, your employer is under a legal duty to ensure that you are kept safe at all times. They must follow guidelines set out across a range of health and safety laws and regulations. If they don’t, and you suffer an injury at work, then it is likely you will be able to make a personal injury claim against them.
Even if you are a casual worker or consider yourself to be self-employed, you may well still be considered an employee under UK law, giving you the same right to make a claim as other workers.
Star Legal’s accident and injury specialists can help you claim accident at work compensation following injuries caused in a range of situations, including those involving:
- Lifting and manual handling
- Lack of personal protective equipment (PPE)
- Lack of training
- Falls from height
- Slips and trips
As well as working to secure compensation, we can also help you with the day to day impact of your injury, helping you access the best medical care and rehabilitation. In more complex cases, if you are struggling to make ends meet, we can even work to get some of your compensation early.
At Star Legal we offer a free initial consultation to discuss your work accident claim and how we can help, and we can usually offer no win no fee agreements so there’s no financial risk* to you if your case is unsuccessful.
