Personal Injury – Accidents at Work

Your employer must, by law, keep you safe whilst you are at work and doing your job. There are numerous laws which govern not only the safety of your workplace but also the training you must receive, the equipment you should use to carry out your job and the way in which you work.

If you have been injured as the result of an accident whilst at work then you could be entitled to claim compensation. Our Law Society Personal Injury Panel Members are experts in bringing accident at work claims and we are committed to working with you to maximise the compensation payment you receive, however the accident occurs.

Your employer has a legal responsibility to protect your health, safety and welfare at work.
