Can you deal with my work accident compensation claim on a no win no fee basis?

Yes! Donoghue Solicitors deal with work accident compensation claims on a no win no fee basis. You will not pay anything towards your case at any time, and are not at financial risk in the event your claim is unsuccessful*. By taking the worries about paying for your accident at work claim away, we will help you concentrate on getting better and getting back to work if possible.

What type of work accident claims can I make?

Work accident claims always involve some sort of personal injury. In addition, they usually result in people taking time off work, so we can also help them claim lost earnings. Other things, such as care and assistance provided by others, private medical treatment and out of pocket expenses can be claimed depending on circumstances. Go to our things to claim section for more details.

Will I get the sack if I make a work accident compensation claim?

You shouldn’t! Your employer has a duty to you to ensure that you are safe at work. If they fail in that duty and you are injured as a result, you can claim compensation. Normally employers are very reasonable about this, as they usually have insurance to deal with such accidents.

It should be remembered by your employer that your accident at work claim is entirely independent from your employment situation. They should not use any claim as the basis for unfair treatment or dismissal. If they do so, you can pursue a separate claim for compensation against them at the employment tribunal. Employers and their insurers are well aware of this, so unfair dismissal cases after an accident are unusual.

What will my accident at work claim solicitor do?

Our personal injury lawyers are experts in this complicated area of law. Work injury claims involve legal argument based on statute (laws made by Parliament) and common law (laws made by judges in court) as well as issues involving procedure and evidence. Because of this, our solicitors are highly trained to ensure that they put your case forward in the best possible way.

In addition to dealing with legal argument, your solicitor will work with you to maximise your workplace injury claims. If successful, your work accident compensation claim should put you in the same financial position as if the accident never happened, and award you appropriate compensation for your injuries. Our lawyers are skilled at working out how best to prove your claim, and work with experts such as doctors, accountants and occupational therapists to ensure that your claim is proved.
