Trip or Slip Claims
Had an accident at work and need honest advice on compensation claims? Whitestone Solicitors has over 30 years of experience in the personal injury claims market, dealing with hundreds of cases across the UK. Our skilled, highly-experienced team of specialist lawyers provide quality legal advice for all sorts of work-related injuries.
Whether your workplace accident occurred as a result of a consistently dangerous working environment or was a one-off accident as a result of health and safety negligence, you may have a legal basis for achieving a compensation claim. Your employer has a duty to ensure that you working environment is safe - if you’ve had an accident, it’s clear that this duty was neglected.
Our team only takes on cases where we think you have a good chance of success, so all cases are subject to an initial evaluation. If we feel that your case isn’t solid, we let you know from the very beginning, ensuring that you don’t have to go through the hassles of the courts when your chances of success are low.
If your case ends up going to court, our experts will guide you through every stage of the process, giving you the best chance of a successful outcome. We work on a no-win, no-fee basis, with no hidden costs or nasty surprise charges, and we work flat-out to ensure you receive the maximum possible compensation for your injuries.
If you’re nervous about raising a case against your current or former employer, it’s essential that you realise that by failing to provide a safe working environment, your employer was not showing adequate concern for your welfare. Compensation cases for workplace accidents let employers know that failure to properly look after their staff members can cost them.
Your employer’s company insurance will cover the costs of your claim, so you shouldn’t worry about the effects your claim will have on your current or former co-workers. All companies should have robust insurance policies in place to prevent such incidents. If you were injured in an accident and a co-worker was partially to blame, nor should you worry that the claim will result in their dismissal. Responsibility for ensuring the prevention of workplace injuries lies with the company, not with its staff, and the situation which lead to your injury should not have been allowed to arise in the first place.
If the damages sustained in your accident at work prevented you from working, you should be recompensed for the wages you couldn’t earn while you recovered. Our team has a wealth of experience in ensuring that our clients are treated fairly by their employers, and that your ability to live a normal life is affected as little as possible by your injuries.
It’s crucial that you contact Whitestone Solicitors as soon as possible after your accident. Delays may reduce the chance of a successful outcome, or may limit the amount of compensation you receive. You should always speak to a legal expert before embarking on any proceedings whatsoever.
