    Frequently Asked Questions

    We understand how daunting the claim process can seem, but our friendly team of accident at work lawyers is always on hand to help. We’ve answered some of the most common questions below, but if you have any of your own, please don’t hesitate to give us a call or get in touch via email.

    What happens if my claim is unsuccessful?

    Because we operate on a no-win, no-fee basis, if we aren’t successful in achieving compensation for your workplace injury, you won’t owe us a thing! It really is that simple – there are no hidden fees.

    Who pays my workplace injury compensation if my claim is successful?

    Every employer is responsible for the safety of its employees, and is required to have employer’s liability insurance. The role of this insurance is to protect the employer in the event of an accident, in case the injured worker wishes to make a claim. Essentially, this insurance will be paying your compensation, meaning none of your colleagues will be impacted by your decision to seek compensation.

    How often do your clients receive compensation?

    With a 98% success rate, we achieve satisfactory settlements for the vast majority of our clients.

    Why should I seek compensation?

    A workplace injury can have a major effect on your day-to-day life. In some cases, injuries may result in you having to take time off work or perhaps even leave your job completely. If you are fortunate enough to return to work swiftly, there may be other implications to your health from returning to this environment, such as trauma or fear.

    When you factor all of this in, the lasting effects of a workplace injury can be significant – and if you’re entitled to compensation, you deserve to receive it

    How do I know if my employer is at fault?

    In the UK, every employer or business owner is legally responsible for the welfare and safety of their staff. All are required by law to have Employers’ Liability Insurance. If employers have failed to meet health and safety regulations and those failings result in you being injured, it is your right to seek compensation.

    If you have been injured at work, report the incident to your line manager straight away. The next step would then be to get in touch with us for expert legal advice.
