Work Injuries

Last year more than a million people suffered from an illness or injury they believed to have been caused, or made worse by their current or past work, so if you have been injured you may be able to make a claim.

“The figures are staggering: each year some 29 million work days are lost with nearly 5 million of those resulting from around 250,000 injuries. Sadly, recent figures also show that the number of fatal injuries remains high at a level approaching 200 deaths.”

What areas do you cover?

You can claim compensation for a work accident injury as a full time or part time employee, a temporary worker, a self-employed contractor or if you were just visiting a business at the time of the accident.

How can you help me?

We will need to know some important details such as where and how the accident happened and your injuries. If you have received any medical treatment, or there were any witnesses to the accident, particularly from work colleagues, we’ll ask for these details along with copies of any photos that were taken relating to the accident.

What should I do next?

Contacting the Team at Nash & Co will not cost you anything and we will be able to assess the circumstances and suggest the course of action that you can consider taking. Give Mike Shiers or one of the team a call on 01752 827025 or email [email protected] to talk about your case.

Employers are required by law to have valid Employers’ Liability insurance cover to protect people from workplace accidents and most claims are brought against the insurance company, not the employer. Our job is to provide clear understanding and advice and to help you take fast legal action to recover.
