Accidents at Work

Accidents at Work

At DSM Legal Solicitors, we handle all types of accidents at work compensation injury claims, whether caused by a trip or slip, or by falling from a height, such as a fall from a ladder, scaffolding or a faulty or unguarded working platform.  

Compensation can also be claimed for injuries caused by lifting, carrying or moving heavy loads and objects at work or for injuries sustained as a result of being struck by falling objects.   

Injuries caused by defective plant and machinery or unsafe working conditions are common examples of the types of claims that we deal with.   Even on the road, a vehicle provided by the employer for use at work must be safe.  You can contact us by telephoning 01925 937070 or click here and complete our Accident at Work Enquiry Form.

We also have a Wigan office which can be contacted on 01942 914004.

I’ve had an accident at work – what can I claim for?

You can claim for your injuries, loss of earnings and out of pocket expenses, such as prescription charges and expenses in travelling for medical consultations.   You can also claim for money spent on rehabilitation or physiotherapy (which we can arrange for you to aid your recovery).   We will seek reimbursement of medical fees and other expenses from your employer’s insurance company.

Do you take workplace accident claims on a ‘no win, no fee’ basis?

Yes we do.  There is absolutely no financial risk to you whatever – if you don’t succeed in winning your case we don’t charge you anything at all.   We have vast experience of running accident at work claims on a ‘no win, no fee’ basis. Our solicitors were among the first to change over to the new system when it was introduced by the Government over 20 years ago in place of legal aid.

Who will pay my compensation?

All employers are legally obliged to have employers’ liability insurance. Your employer’s insurance company will pay your compensation in the event of a successful claim being made against the employer.
