Our team of no win, no fee solicitors at claimssolicitors.co.uk have a wide range of experience in dealing with the large variety of claims that can arise out of an accident at work.
Your employer has a duty in law to provide you with a safe working environment.

The most common accidents at work are related to handling, lifting and carrying. These can result in back injuries or spinal injuries. There are also many instances of falling, slip and trip accidents, and being hit by objects or vehicles, which can result in limb injuries and even catastrophic injuries. Unsafe machinery causes many work injuries per year including amputations of fingers, toes and limbs. Machinery is often a major factor in noisy environments that can cause long term hearing loss or industrial deafness. All these instances can lead to a successful work injury claim
Burns and chemical burns happen in a variety of accidents at work, and many skin conditions such as dermatitis are contracted each year at work. Long term diseases - especially lung conditions such as asthma and COPD (Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease) - can be also contracted at work due to exposure to excessive dust or chemicals. Four percent of cancer deaths in the UK are due to work related causes.
