Workplace Accident Claim Expertise From Irwin Mitchell

Since the passing of the Health and Safety at Work Act (1974), every employer has the legal responsibility to protect you from the risks you face at work. Whatever your profession, there are a wide range of potential accidents and injuries that could affect you in your working life. If you have been injured in an accident at work, you may be entitled to compensation if we can find that your employer did not do enough to protect you from the risks.

Accidents at work can range dramatically from mild injuries that clear up in a few weeks to severe injuries which can leave you with permanent physical or psychological damage. Wherever you work and however you have been injured, Irwin Mitchell's team of specialist workplace accident lawyers could help you seek the compensation you need to ensure your future is protected.

As specialists in workplace and industrial accidents, we have successfully fought for compensation in a very broad range of workplace accident cases.

We have handled thousands of injury cases on behalf of clients who have been injured, including trade union members. Our reputation in successfully claiming for industrial work accidents and workplace injury makes us a formidable force and recognised leaders in our field.

Your employer must provide the correct health and safety advice, training, protective equipment, protective clothing and first aid facilities to keep you safe at work. If you have been involved in an accident caused by a failure in any of these areas, you may be able to make an accident at work claim.

Regulations on workplace safety exist to cover a range of work accidents including:

  • Accidents while lifting or moving heavy loads
  • Accidents while using machinery
  • Accidents caused by a lack of safety equipment
  • Falls from height
  • Tripping and slipping

How We Can Help

If your employer has failed in their duty to protect you, we can help you make a compensation claim. We use our experience in accidents at work claims to make sure our clients get the compensation they deserve.

As well as helping you claim compensation, we can also help with your medical treatment and rehabilitation. This can involve liaison with NHS staff or helping you to access private healthcare where needed. We can also advise you on rehabilitation and any changes that you need to make to your lifestyle after an accident, such as installing ramps at your home or buying a more accessible car.

At all times during your claim we will keep you up-to-date with what is happening and will use clear, easy-to-understand language. We understand that making a claim can seem daunting so we will do all we can to make the process as stress-free for you as possible so that you can concentrate on your recovery.
