Personal injury in the workplace
Many personal injuries are sustained as a result of accidents at work and our panel of personal injury solicitors are highly experienced at representing cases for those who have sustained a variety of workplace injuries at the hands of their negligent employers.
If you have sustained a personal injury through no fault of your own then it is likely that you will be able to make a no win no fee compensation claim for damages such as lost earnings and medical expenses as well as the pain, suffering and distress that you have experienced, just like the office worker described below.
Office worker sustains personal injuries
A female administration assistant from Manchester contacted us to make a no win no fee personal injury compensation claim after she tripped over a set of computer wires that had not been bound up and tucked away neatly when she got up from her desk to make a cup of tea.
She twisted her ankle as she tripped which bruised and swelled badly. As she fell, she put out her arm to break her landing and fractured her wrist, leaving her arm in plaster for two months. During the fall she also hit her head on a filing cabinet draw that was not closed properly, causing a laceration and mild concussion. Read more about head injuries
As a result of these personal injuries the admin assistant could not return to the office for 10 weeks. She was left unable to type until her wrist injury had completely healed, her head injury made looking at her computer screen unbearable and getting around was made difficult by her ankle injury.

She recorded the work accident in the company log book and pursued a claim with our help. Following an investigation by the Health and Safety Executive, her employer was found liable for her injuries and pleaded guilty to the infringement of two health and safety regulations. The company was ordered to pay her £7,300.
She was satisfied that the neglect of her employers had been made apparent and hoped that this would mean they would be more mindful of their employees' welfare in the future.
