Accidents at work can and do happen on a frequent basis no matter what type of environment you work in. You may be an office worker, work at a factory, in a shop or drive an HGV lorry for a living; either way, your employer has a legal obligation to make sure the workplace is safe for you to work in and be around.

It doesn’t matter whether you are a full or part-time employee, a temporary member of staff, a contractor or even visiting the business when the accident happened, if you have suffered an injury that is no fault of your own, it may be possible to pursue a personal injury compensation claim.

As well as achieving a compensation payment, we can help you recover from your injuries by arranging rehabilitation treatment. Call us on 0161 930 5151 to speak to our specialist team.

Gorvin’s approach to Work injury claims

Our specialised solicitors are fully equipped to deal with all types of workplace accidents and injuries; from burns and breaks to more severe spinal and brain injuries. Our approach is to put you first, which we manage successfully by listening to your circumstances, assessing the situation and acting in your best interest.

We know some people are worried about making a compensation claim against their employer, for fear of putting their job at risk. Fear not, our experienced and friendly workplace injury team are extremely skilled in handling workplace injuries and dealing with employers to make sure your position at work is not compromised in any way by you making a claim.

We will deal directly with your employer and their insurers in a professional and dedicated manner, so you don’t have to. Your employer cannot dismiss you just because you are making a claim; remember it’s the insurer who will pay your compensation and not your employers.

How do I know if I can claim for a workplace accident?

The precautions your employer needs to take will vary depending on the type of work you do and the equipment you work with, but if your employer has failed to minimise the risk in your workplace and you suffer an accident as a result, you are entitled to make a compensation claim.

We have dealt with a wide variety of clients arising from accidents at work. We act for all different types of accidents and injuries, but some of our specialist areas include:

  • Construction Injuries
  • Fork-Lift Truck Accidents
  • Industrial Disease
  • Machine Injuries
  • Office Accidents & Display Screen Claims
  • Slips, Trips & Falls at Work
  • Stress, Depression and Psychological Injury
  • Vibration White Finger
