Accidents at work can not only cause you to suffer from your injuries but it could mean you are not paid for some time

Accidents at work can not only cause you to suffer from your injuries but it could mean you are not paid for some time

As workers we have important rights at work which should not be compromised. An employer must ensure that:

  • The work environment is safe and free form all hazards
  • Adequate training has been provided to ensure work can be conducted without risk of an injury
  • Adequate equipment has been provided
  • All employees required to lift heavy objects should receive training to show them how to do this safely.

At MTG, our injury solicitors have experience of recovering compensation for a range of people working in a variety of industries. We have helped recover compensation for working who have suffered severe injuries that have resulted in amputation, as well as relatively minor injuries such as soft tissue damage.

We have experience in claims involving:

  • Injuries involving lifting or manual handling
  • Failure to provide suitable protective equipment
  • Defective or dangerous machinery
  • Exposure to harmful and dangerous substances
  • Slips or trips

Accidents at work can not only cause you to suffer from your injuries but it could mean you are not paid for some time. We understand this might cause difficulties and therefore we process the claim in most efficient manner, ensuring to obtain maximum compensation for our clients.

You can claim compensation for a work accident injury whether you were working as a full time or part time employee, a temporary worker, a self-employed contractor or if you were just visiting a business at the time of the accident.

As with all accident compensation claims, you would need to prove that your injury, illness or disease was caused as a result of the negligence of another party (in this case your employer) and once you instruct us, we will assist you in compiling your evidence and presenting it to the third party insurers.
