Accident at work claims
At Admiral Law we have represented numerous clients who have sustained injuries at work, securing compensation to reflect the severity of their injury, the impact on their lives and recover the earnings as a result.
Employees are protected by extensive legislation to ensure that they are safeguarded from risk of injury, but where that risk cannot be completely avoided, equipment, training and other measures are implemented to reduce that risk to the lowest possible level. It is often these measures which employers fail to implement hence leading to an injury at work for which they are responsible.
Accidents at work can involve a countless number of situations, such as:
- Trips & slips
- Failure to provide Personal Protective Equipment (PPE)
- Injury while lifting or performing a manual handling activity
- Repetitive Strain
- Accidents on the Highway (while delivering)
- Falling equipment or Working at Height
- Stress at Work
It is also important to remember that even if you are not an employee, perhaps as a sub-contractor, there is often the opportunity to pursue a claim where you are working in premises controlled by someone else.
We understand the impact a serious injury can have, particularly the financial impact where you are unable to return to work. At Admiral Law we understand the importance of placing you at the centre of what we do and working with you every step of the way. Our focus is to give our clients the best quality of life possible and we do this by working with leading medical experts and treatment providers, to ensure you achieve the right outcome for you both now and into the future.

How will my claim be funded?
You may have legal expenses insurance attached to your car or home insurance policy. We can make enquiries to see if any such legal expense insurance exists and can be used to fund your claim. If you do not have existing legal expenses insurance we can enter into a Conditional Fee Agreement (a no win no fee agreement) and a bespoke policy of after the event legal expenses insurance. Under the terms of a no win no fee agreement, you may be charged a success fee.
How long will my claim take?
We aim to conclude your claim as soon as is possible. The length of time this takes depends very much on the severity of the injury and the duration of your recovery and importantly the willingness of the defendant to accept fault.
It is important that we ensure that you are recovered completely or have a final prognosis for your future in order to calculate any resulting losses before attempting to settle your claim.
How much compensation will I receive?
The consequences of the injuries or illnesses will vary between individuals. The amount of compensation you could receive will be personal to you and depend upon a number of factors such as the severity of the injury, extent of any continuing symptoms and the level of impact on ability to work.
Our personal injury solicitors are experienced in accurately valuing claims to ensure you get the compensation you deserve.
