What happens if… l suffer an injury at work?
Accidents can happen and it may be nobody’s fault.
However all employers have obligations to protect the health and safety of their employees. If they fail to take reasonable steps to do so they may be liable to compensate the employee for the injuries suffered and any consequential losses.
Remember that for these purposes the term injury includes disease - for example illness suffered through workplace exposure to materials such as asbestos.
So first ask yourself how the accident could have been avoided. This should tell you what steps the employer could have taken to avoid it.
Next, take advice - it is wise to do so even if you are uncertain, perhaps because you continue to work in the same place.
Be assured - we do not charge for the first meeting with you nor do we communicate with your employer unless you specifically tell us to do so.
Rest easy going forward - if a claim is pursued we would offer you a no win/no fee funding arrangement.
At BTMK we see the full picture and know that in the early stages the priority will be to get on with rehabilitation and get back to work as soon as possible. We will concentrate on these goals
We believe that most people are more comfortable dealing with a local solicitor who they can meet on a face-to-face basis, particularly at a difficult time. It’s worth bearing in mind that some of the well-advertised providers may put you in touch with someone miles away from your home.
No win – no fee – no problem.
