Compensation for Accidents at Work

Accidents at work can have both minor and serious consequences which can result in a lengthy period of time off work as well as cause financial and emotional distress.

Call Fountain Solicitors today and discuss all elements of your accident at work, whether it is a slip or trip, an injury following use of defective products or machinery at work,  or an injury sustained following misuse of products or machinery by your colleague(s), or even exposure to dangerous substances.

As long as you were an employee acting in the course of your employment, you can claim with Fountain Solicitors for your injuries at work.

Your Duties

Under the rules of the Employer’s Liability Protocol, the onus is on you to prove that your accident was caused as a consequence of the defendant’s actions/negligence.  It is therefore imperative that you provide Fountain Solicitors with as much information as possible to support your accident and injuries.  Please ensure that the following are available:

  • Full details of your employer, including address and contact numbers of head offices;
  • Ensure that an accident report form is completed, even if it is recorded shortly after your accident date;
  • Take full details of any witnesses involved;
  • If you were using machinery or slipped on a wet surface, please take photographs of the location of the incident;
  • Seek medical treatment as soon as possible.  If you do not attend the hospital on the very same day, then visit your GP the next convenient day;
  • Provide evidence that you are/were an employee at the time of the incident.

Our Pledge

We will commence in proceeding with your claim as soon as we have all relevant information.

We will deal with your claim on a “no win, no fee” basis.

To assist you in obtaining your compensation as soon as possible, we have systems in place to ensure that your claim is dealt with effectively and efficiently.

We have an experienced team of solicitors who will endeavour to obtain both your general damages, consisting of injuries caused as a direct result of your accident, and special damages, which are all your financial losses incurred following your incident (though your financial losses must be found to be attributable to the incident in question, and losses must be considered reasonable in the circumstances and accompanied by supporting evidence of your losses).  The aim of your personal injury solicitor is to ‘put you back in the position you would have enjoyed had this accident not taken place’.

Please contact one of our dedicated workplace solicitors on 01922 645 429, or email us on info@fountainsolicitors.com. Alternatively, you can complete our short enquiry form and one of our dedicated personal injury solicitors will get back to you as soon as they can.  We will call you to discuss your claim in full and the procedures set out for such types of incident.

Accidents occurring in Walsall, Birmingham, Wolverhampton, Cannock, Stoke, Coventry, Leicester, Worcester, Manchester, London, Bristol, Cardiff, Newport and any other part of England and Wales, are sincerely welcome to contact our no win no fee lawyers to pursue their claim.
