FAQs

  • Can I claim for loss of wages due to an accident at work?

    Yes, you can claim for any wages you may have lost if you’ve been unable to work. It’s likely that the injury or illness you have sustained from your accident at work will prevent you from being able to work while you recover. Part of the money you could stand to be awarded may include money that would have otherwise been earned if you were able to attend work as normal.

    We understand that everyone needs a basic income to live day-to-day, and we don’t believe that someone who has sustained an injury, through no fault of their own, should also suffer a loss of earnings because they are unable to work.

    Aside from claiming for lost wages, it’s also possible to claim for medical costs and compensation for any psychological or physical damage caused by the accident. All you need to do is get in touch with one of our advisors on the number at the top of your screen or via our online claim form and we’ll do everything we can to help.

  • I was injured at work. Can my employer dismiss me for making a claim?

    No, your employer cannot legally dismiss you because you have made a claim against them. It is illegal for an employer to fire one of their employees if they are injured at work, and subsequently, make a compensation claim against them.

    This means that anyone who needs to make a claim against their employer as a result of an accident at work can do so without worrying about the consequences or fearing the negative implications of taking legal action.

    From an employer’s perspective, dismissing a worker for making a claim can be damaging and would only increase the chances that they would have to pay out compensation. Employees are fully within their rights to claim for compensation should they sustain injuries as a result of an accident in the workplace.

    We understand that taking legal action against your employer can cause stress and anxiety, especially when your future career is concerned. However, if you’ve sustained an injury at work which has either prevented you from working or generally hindered your enjoyment of life, we believe that it’s only right you claim the compensation you deserve.

    Furthermore, you are protected by law, so no matter how aggrieved your employer may feel about you taking legal action, they cannot dismiss you from your role for doing so.

    If you have any questions about making a claim against your employer, following an accident in the workplace that wasn’t your fault, then you can get free, impartial advice from our experts, who will be more than happy to help you.

  • I’ve been injured at work. Can I claim?

    Yes, if you have had an accident at work that wasn’t your fault, then you can make a claim for compensation. The circumstances of every accident are different, but if the accident was as a result of workplace negligence and could have otherwise been avoided, then you could have a case for receiving compensation for your injuries.

    Workplace injuries are surprisingly common and often occur due to carelessness on the employer’s behalf. We offer free and impartial advice over the phone and we’re more than happy to assess the details of your case and advise you on whether or not you would be able to make a claim.

    Our panel of solicitors include experts in workplace accidents, who have worked on several cases and successfully claimed compensation for their clients. Solicitors who specialise in workplace injury cases are the best people to advise you on taking legal action.

    With these types of claims, there is usually a three year time limit, so it’s recommended to start your claim sooner rather than later. Additionally, the more recent the accident, the more likely you are to remember specific details relating to the accident, which could help you to make your claim.

  • I am nervous about pursuing a claim against my employers

    It’s understandable that you might feel anxious about bringing a claim against your employer. You might worry about losing your job or, if forced to take leave in order to recover from your injury, you may be concerned that you’ll not be able to return to your former role.

    Many people are concerned that their employer will be so aggrieved about their decision to make a claim due to an accident at work that they will terminate their employment. However, taking this sort of action against any employee making a claim is actually illegal.  

    If your boss does decide to terminate your contract after finding out about your claim, you also have reasonable grounds to start unfair dismissal proceedings against them, which would potentially cause further damage to their reputation.

    Should you fall victim to an accident at work, you shouldn’t have to worry about what your employer would think about you making a claim. It’s their responsibility to ensure that your workplace is a safe, clean environment that is free from hazards which could harm your health and wellbeing.

    With one of our solicitors by your side, making a claim against your employer won’t be a problem and you can be rest assured that your case is in the best possible hands. Our solicitors understand that many people have these concerns regarding their employers, and will always deal with your case sympathetically.
