Employers have a duty of care towards their workforce and must take all reasonably practicable steps to ensure preventable accidents and injuries do not occur. This will usually involve providing adequate levels of staff training, performing regular risk assessments, keeping a clean and tidy workplace and ensuring all tools and equipment are well-maintained. When they fail to meet these responsibilities, preventable accidents can occur, which the employer can be liable for.
Most accident at work claims involve relatively minor injuries, but some people sustain serious and lasting injuries with long-term implications, which they may never recover from. The size of the final compensation settlement will depend on the severity of the claimant's injuries, the size of their losses, and their long-term prognosis.

Making work accident claims
Typically, accident at work claims follow these stages:
- The client informs our solicitors about the accident they were in and the injuries they sustained
- Their report is assessed so we can determine whether or not the client has a claim and which funding options would be most suitable
- The client and our solicitors work together to gather evidence and build the claim
- Our solicitors try to recover all the money the claimant deserves - through the courts if required
