Accidents at Work
We specialise in obtaining compensation for injury sustained as a result of an accident at work.
Employers have a duty of care to their employees, regardless of if you work in an office, warehouse, or in public. Even occupations considered dangerous must be carried out as safely as possible with necessary training and suitable equipment. However accidents can still happen, no matter how much care is taken by you or your employer. If your employer has failed in their duty of care, you may be entitled to seek compensation for pain, suffering or loss of earnings as a result.
Have you suffered from a work related injury?
An accident at work can be serious and costly. If you’ve been injured and it wasn’t your fault we might be able to claim compensation. Typical accidents are:
- Trips, slips or falls
- Falls from height
- Manual Handling
- Defective equipment
- Collapsing scaffolding
- Falling objects
- Caught in Machinery
- Exposure to noxious fumes
- Excessive noise
How we can help you?
Paul Rooney Solicitors have a wealth of knowledge in dealing with claims for accidents at work, having successfully helped thousands of clients in the last 40 years. We can assist you on a No Win No Fee basis with no upfront fees to pay.
Most cases, other than for the most serious injuries, are dealt with via a streamlined semi-automated process and settle within months. Employers must have Employers Liability insurance by law and any compensation obtained is paid by the insurer not by the Employer directly.
The process involves
- Collecting the details of the claim
- Reporting the claim to the at fault insurance company
- Collecting details and evidence of losses incurred
- Obtaining medical evidence to support your claim
- Valuing and trying to negotiate early settlement of your claim, without Court action
- Explaining Court process and issue proceedings
