Accidents at Work

Accidents at Work - What can I claim for?

Returning to work after an accident is often stressful. It can be a good idea to keep in touch with colleagues whilst away to make returning back after your recovery as smooth as possible.

It’s also very important that you refrain from rushing back too quickly. If you go back to work too soon, you may find that you don’t make the full recovery you would if you were resting at home. Taking legal action may mean you remain financially stable whilst recovering from your injury and thus prevent the need to return too early.

If you have had to leave employment because of your accident or illness, we can provide guidance on how to obtain financial assistance, claim benefits, or even retraining into another career path. We can apply for advance payments of your financial damages where possible.

We can help you get the right medical advice, rehabilitation assistance and medical equipment to maximise your recovery and reduce the discomfort caused by your injury. 

Additionally we can include the following losses if you have sustained them:

  • past and future loss of earnings
  • loss of pension entitlement
  • past and future private treatment fees
  • medication costs
  • care costs 
  • aids and appliances
  • travel expenses
  • costs of retraining for alternative employment if necessary

If our team of expert solicitors consider that you have a successful case, we can offer help on a no win, no fee basis. You will receive 100% of the compensation that you are awarded.
