Having an accident at work can be devastating, especially if the injuries sustained are life changing. Even where the injuries are not serious, work accidents may render the injured person unable to continue working for a certain period of time.
We do understand how upset you are and that you are probably in pain and feeling let down by your employer too. We can help you to try to come to terms with these feelings and work out if you are able to make a claim for compensation for your accident at work.

There are a huge number of different circumstances which may result in an accident at work. Obviously some workplaces are going to be more high risk than others, but essentially accidents can happen anywhere whilst you are working. Some examples are:
