Accidents at work are commonplace, and those who suffer injury as a result of an accident at work should be compensated. Employers have a duty to ensure the work environment is safe at all times and to ensure that staff are adequately equipped and trained. Most accidents at work are caused as a result of the employer’s or co-worker’s negligence, and the injured person should be compensated accordingly.

You may be concerned about making a claim against your employer, believing it could harm your career prospects. Jones Whyte’s work injury lawyers are here to reassure you and to ensure the claim process is as smooth as possible.

Our team of specialist injury-at-work solicitors will guide you through every step of the process.

We have handled many different kinds of work-related personal injury claims, including:

Many workplaces include inherent risks, and it is the employer’s responsibility to manage and reduce risk. If they haven’t done this, they could be liable for claims for any injuries suffered at work.

Your employer has a legal duty to ensure you’re safe at work. In practice, this means they have a responsibility to:

  • Make sure you’re properly trained.
  • Provide you with suitable work and personal protective equipment.
  • Undertake risk assessments.
  • Manage business activities to minimise risks to your health and safety.
  • Provide safe working systems.

The claims process

When you make a claim with Jones Whyte, our work injury compensation lawyers will support you every step of the way. While every personal injury claim is different, they all start the same way. One of our work injury lawyers will take your statement. This will help establish exactly what happened, whether it was a single incident or a pattern of negligence. We will then thoroughly investigate the incident. This can include gathering evidence from your side, such as:

  • Medical reports.
  • Witness statements.
  • Evidence of earnings lost.

It may also involve looking at workplace policies and training, to see if these adequately manage the risk of injury.

Finally, the other side is informed of the claim, and the appropriate amount of compensation is calculated.

Very few claims go to court. However, if court action is necessary, our work injury compensation lawyers are tough and experienced litigators.

Types of workplace injury claims

Some workplaces are inherently more risky than others. However, that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t claim for an injury suffered in a workplace seen as “safe”.

For example, if you trip and fall in an office because flooring is damaged, then you have every right to claim.

At Jones Whyte, we have helped workers in all sorts of industries make claims. Not only can this ensure you get the compensation you deserve, but it can also give you access to medical treatment, such as physiotherapy to aid your recovery. It can also ensure that lessons are learned, workplace processes are improved and people are not injured in the same way in the future.

Speak to us straight away if you have suffered an injury at work. There are time limits for making personal injury claims, so it is important to start the claims process before these expire.
