All working environments carry risks to employees. Whether you work in an office, a shop, a school or a construction site you are at risk of suffering an injury at work. It is the duty of your employer to ensure health and safety guidelines are followed and to ensure all equipment is in working order, but what happens if they don’t?
If an employer fails to ensure the workplace is safe a serious injury could occur. If you are injured at work and it was not your fault you could be entitled to claim employer liability compensation.
All working environments come with hazards and an employer liability claim can be made if you suffer an injury at work and were not at fault. Minor and serious injuries can both be claimed for, as well as psychological damage.
Employer liability compensation is calculated based on the specific case, but a successful settlement will result in you receiving compensation to make up for the pain and suffering experienced. This can include the cost of medical treatment, rehabilitation, physical pain, and psychological damage. Employer liability compensation also includes other damages such as lost wages and travel expenses.
The amount of compensation will depend on the exact damages you experienced but the goal is to award you enough compensation to get yourself back to where you were before the accident happened and to reward you financially for the suffering.

We guide you through the claims process as clearly as possible and ensure you are fully aware of what is happening as we help you to claim your compensation.
