Claim compensation for a personal injury at work.

If you have been injured in the workplace, or whilst carrying out your duties at work, you may be able to claim compensation.

Employers have a duty to ensure their employees’ safety. If they fail to do so, they can be held legally responsible for the harm that an employee suffers as a result.


At Truth Legal, we strive to hold negligent employers to account. We understand the drastic effects that an injury at work can have on your life, and our expert personal injury lawyers will do all they can to get you the compensation you deserve.

Is My Employer Negligent?

There are many ways in which your employer might be responsible for your accident. Some of them may surprise you. They can include:

·        Failing to properly assess risks to their workers

·        Failing to operate a safe working environment

·        Failing to plan or implement safe systems of work

·        Failing to provide or maintain appropriate safety equipment

·        Failing to provide proper training to you or other staff

·       Failing to arrange adequate numbers of staff

Employers can also be held responsible for the behaviour of their workers. So if you were injured through the conduct of one of your co-workers, your employers may also be liable for the harm you have suffered.

How much is an Accident at Work Claim Worth?

Compensation for accident at work claims (and other personal injury claims) is based on the harm you have suffered because of the accident. This will include your injuries, but can also include financial losses you have incurred as a result, such as lost earnings and treatment expenses. It means, however, that the ‘value’ of your claim will depend on the money you have lost and the extent of your injuries.
