Have you suffered an injury from a work-related accident?

If you have had an accident at work, we can help.

No matter what type of working environment you are employed in, your employer has a duty of care to provide safe working conditions and minimise potential accidents from occurring.

With a wide range of experience covering common slips and trips to complex and serious injuries, our team can assist and work towards a positive result. Our no-win, no-fee service has helped hundreds of clients injured in work-related accidents.

Aside from personal injury, suffering from an accident at work can also mean the stresses of financial losses, such as loss of earnings. Our team can also advise on how to claim such losses back.

  • Factory and Warehouse Accidents
  • Farming Accidents
  • Construction and Building Site Accidents
  • Office and Shop Accidents
  • Working at height
  • Manual handling injuries
  • Accidents at work using machinery

We can also assist with other types of claims which you believe were a result of someone else’s negligence while you were at work.

In occupations that require employees to work from a height, any resulting injuries can be very serious. Your employer has a duty of care to provide a safe working environment to prevent and minimise the risk of an accident to employees. If your workplace has failed to take steps to minimise the risk to you,  you could be entitled to compensation.

Clients who have suffered an injury from falling at height in the workplace should have been provided with the necessary equipment or training to carry out their job safely, unfortunately, this is not always the case.

At TLW Solicitors, we understand that sustaining an injury at work can be a very stressful time. As well as suffering from the injuries sustained, time off work often means loss of earnings or additional expenses. Our personal injury specialists are dedicated to making sure you receive the maximum compensation available and will seek to recover any loss sustained as a result of the accident.

Manual handling injuries in the workplace are usually caused by the incorrect handling and lifting of objects with heavy or repetitive lifting often being the most common problems.

Your employer has a duty to try to avoid where possible the need for its employees to carry out manual handling tasks. However, in most workplaces, employees must carry out manual handling or lifting duties as part of their job.

It is the responsibility of your employer to adhere to health and safety regulations which include the provision of training relating to safe lifting techniques and the provision of suitable equipment to assist with manual handling tasks.

If an employer has ignored or failed to comply with manual handling regulations and you have suffered from an accident at work through no fault of your own, you could be entitled to claim for compensation.

Machinery and work equipment injuries in the workplace can result in employees being seriously hurt and in the most unfortunate cases, can result in death.

Employers have a legal duty to comply with health and safety regulations, including carrying out risk assessments and putting in place necessary safety procedures.

A significant risk of injury is presented if machinery is not correctly maintained or guarded. If the correct safety equipment is not in place or employees are not provided with the correct training to use machinery or equipment then serious injuries can easily occur.

If you have suffered an injury because of unsafe machinery, a lack of training or misuse of machinery by a colleague you could be entitled to seek personal injury compensation.
