Suffering an accident in the workplace can put a significant, and sometimes long term strain on your financial life. Therefore when negotiating how much compensation you deserve for your injury, as well as compensating the pain and suffering the accident has caused you, it is important we consider a number of additional factors that include:
Our role is to ensure that when you make a claim for a workplace accident, your compensation is awarded at a level that will cover all of your medical needs. Some injuries may require physiotherapy or other rehabilitation treatment in order to fully recover. Other work accident claims can involve serious injury, even disablement which may require surgery, physiotherapy, occupational therapy, rehabilitation, ongoing drug treatment, home adaptation or the provision of specialist equipment.
As experienced work accident solicitors we deal with medical professionals to define the status of your injuries, how it can be expected to develop and how it might be resolved.
Accident at work injuries lead to discomfort, suffering and can affect your quality of life: so it's only reasonable that you should be compensated.

Generally you have three years from the date of the accident to have issued legal proceedings with the court. However as investigating and obtaining medical evidence can take several months, you should seek legal assistance as soon as possible. Our guide on how long do I have to make a claim for compensation provides further details on the time limits.
The Ministry of Justice (MoJ) has introduced a streamlined claim process for employer related accidents after 31st July 2013. So a straightforward claim that runs through this process should ideally reach settlement in around nine months.
However many claims exit the MoJ process due to their complexity or the employer failing to admit liability, which can then extend the length of time needed to reach comprehensive settlement. Our guide on how long injury claims take to settle provides additional detail on some of the other factors involved.
