Work Related Injuries
Can I make a claim?
If you’ve been injured in an accident at work in the last three years that wasn’t your fault, you may be entitled to claim.
All employers have a duty of care to provide a safe working environment for their employees. If your employer neglected their responsibility, and you were injured at work as a result, you may be able to claim.
Why should you claim?
If you’ve suffered an industrial injury, claiming compensation will help you get back on your feet. The compensation will help to cover any financial losses you’ve experienced because of your injury. Maybe you’ve had to take time off work, or had to pay out for medication or physiotherapy to help recover.
We’ll take all the details of your experience into consideration when dealing with your claim. Your call will be confidential and completely free of charge.
Worried about claiming against your employer?
Many people have concerns about making a work injury claim against their employer. It’s understandable that you’d want to avoid the financial impact it may have on them.
All employers are required by law to take out employers’ liability insurance. Because of this requirement, any compensation you receive for your work related injury will be paid by your employer’s insurance.
You cannot be dismissed for making a personal injury claim against an employer. In fact, making a claim can sometimes result in a safer working environment for you and your colleagues.
We know that it can still be daunting making a work injury claim, which is why we’re here for you through every step of the process.
