If you’ve been injured in an accident at work through no fault of your own, we are here to help you claim the full compensation you are legally entitled to.
An injury at work can be extremely worrying and stressful. If you are considering making a claim for an accident at work, it can be difficult to know where to start. That’s why we are here to help and support you.
Contact our team of friendly advisors for a NO OBLIGATION discussion about your compensation claim.
It’s no secret that legal costs can be expensive.
The good news is that our panel of expert solicitors work on a no win, no fee basis. This simply means if your claim is unsuccessful, you won’t pay a penny. Instead your solicitors will only charge a fee if you win your claim. This is typically around 25% of the compensation amount awarded, it may vary but will always be agreed with you upfront.
So you will only pay a fee if you are awarded compensation – and there are no upfront costs.
You devote an awful lot of time and energy to your employer. It’s only fair that they provide a safe environment for you to work in.
Your employer has a duty of care to try to provide a safe working environment to enable you to do your job safely.
Unfortunately however, every year thousands of accidents at work still happen.
We understand that the thought of claiming compensation for an accident at work can seem daunting. Please be aware however that any compensation awarded to you would be paid by your employer’s insurance company, and not by your employer. Your employer must by law have insurance in place to cover this.
There can be serious consequences when you are injured at work. Not only is the injury itself traumatic. But your job – of course – is your livelihood. If you lost your income because of your injury, you may have been left struggling to meet your monthly overheads. Financial anxiety is stressful and can place a big strain on family life. That’s not fair when the accident wasn’t your fault.
Your employer has a legal duty to keep you safe. It’s called their ‘duty of care’. That includes taking measures to avoid accidents as well as providing proper safety equipment and training to prevent workplace injuries and illnesses from developing over time. It’s why you have every right to seek compensation. Especially if your injury has made it hard – or impossible – to return to work in your preferred trade.
We are here to give you free, friendly advice on your options. And don’t worry. There’s no obligation to make a claim.
With our free initial advice from claim experts, finding out whether you might have a claim is quick, easy and completely free.

We also understand that seeking compensation can sometimes feel daunting. But if the treatment you have received feels wrong, you deserve clear advice to help put it right. So let us make you a promise: calling us doesn’t mean you have to start a claim. Maybe you have questions about your legal rights. Or perhaps you want to know more about the process of seeking compensation. We are here to give you free advice that will make things clearer. And we will never pressure you to make a claim that you feel unsure of.
That’s a promise.
It’s difficult to put a financial value on a workplace injury – especially when it’s caused a lot of pain and disruption to your personal life. Our panel of experienced personal injury solicitors are experts at analysing the details of an accident and calculating the financial impact. You can be confident that we will always do everything we can to make sure you receive the compensation that you rightly deserve.
The specific amount of compensation you receive depends on several things – such as the severity of your injury, the amount of income you have lost and the knock-on effect to your future career. We also consider the psychological impact of your injury as well as any costs you have incurred while receiving treatment or making changes to your lifestyle.
The best way to find out how much compensation you may be entitled to is to call our friendly advice team for an initial conversation about your accident. Call us free on 0800 0511 511. Or you can get some guideline figures with our online claim calculator. We are here for you.
We totally understand that making a claim for compensation is likely to be a step into the unknown for you. That’s why we have made the process as simple, sympathetic and stress-free as we can. When you call, our advice team will take a few details about what happened to you and talk through your available options. If we think you have a case, we will offer to put you in touch with a solicitor from our panel of experts who is experienced with car accident claims like yours. They will complete a detailed assessment of your case – free of charge – and let you know how they can help you.
If your case is accepted and you want to go ahead, your solicitor will take care of the legal process from start to finish – keeping you informed throughout every stage. You will never lose control. The duration of the process depends how complicated your case is and how much evidence we can gather with you. Clear-cut cases can be resolved in as little as a few months – and you may be entitled to immediate financial support while you wait for a final settlement. We are here for you.
You may be wondering where the money for your compensation comes from. With car
accident claims, it all depends on who was at fault for the accident that you were involved in. That could be the driver of another vehicle, an employer that had not checked that a business vehicle was safe to drive, or even a local council if the road you were driving on was unsafe.
However it’s important to note that it’s extremely unlikely that your compensation will come from an individual’s personal finances. That’s a big relief for some of our customers. Instead it’s the insurer of the person at fault that covers the bill. Even if the driver responsible for the accident was uninsured, the Motor Insurers’ Bureau will cover your claim if it’s successful.
What if you were partially at fault for the accident? You may still be able to claim. That’s because with traffic accidents, it’s common for more than one party to have made a mistake. If you would like to know more about where the money for your compensation comes from, please call our friendly UK advisers on 0800 0511 511. We are here to support you.
It’s best to start your claim as soon as you can.
Thanks to our experienced advice team, finding out if you are entitled to compensation after a car accident could be as simple as making one short phone call. We understand that seeking compensation may be something you have been putting off while you recover from your accident and come to terms with what happened. But by law you must begin any claim you wish to make within certain timeframes of your car accident taking place. Following a serious accident, we understand that the claims process can be difficult to face.
But knowing where you stand legally can help to bring you some closure on your accident.
And it’s always best to get things moving as soon as you can while you can remember as much as possible about what happened. No matter what, we will always do everything we can to make sure your compensation experience is simple, straightforward and compassionate.
