Should I make a personal injury claim in Manchester?

Not all workplace accidents are caused by negligence or faulty equipment, but it’s important to assess if you have a claim if you’ve been injured at work. Some people worry about claiming compensation from their employer because of the effect it will have on their employer financially.

However, taking care of employees in the event of accidents at work is one of an employer’s responsibilities. In most cases, employers hold Employers’ Liability Insurance which means you will be able to claim compensation for your accident at work against that insurance, rather than your employer paying out directly.

Many times we find that employers are relieved when injured employees receive the compensation package they need after suffering accidents. 

Contact us to discuss your accident at work claim Manchester in more detail. We specialise in personal injury and serious injury compensation claims and can give you expert legal advice.

What counts as accident at work injuries? 

Over half a million people suffered an injury at work in 2022, and tragically 135 people experienced fatal accidents. Accidents at work can happen in the form of slips and falls on unsafe surfaces in any kind of environment. Some people can experience crush injuries while operating machinery, or burns from chemicals, flames or hot surfaces.

Other specific injuries that can happen from accidents at work include head injuries, a fall that results in multiple fractures, serious burns or even amputation.

If you have experienced a Manchester work accident, get in touch with us so that we can assess your claim and advise you on your likelihood of it being a successful claim. 

We can outline the maximum compensation you’re likely to receive for your injuries as well as any ongoing effects and psychological trauma.

Is my employer liable for my Manchester work accident?

As expert work solicitors based in Manchester, we are ideally placed to assess accident claims and who is at fault when the injury occurred – not only in the North West but anywhere in the UK. 

Employees should be able to go about their duties safely and employers are legally required to follow health and safety laws.

However, just because an accident has taken place at work, it does not necessarily follow that the employer is at fault. We have to be able to show that the employer has been negligent or at fault in some way. 

If an employer can demonstrate that they have a rigorous health and safety policy in force that was put into practice, the court may decide that the employer has done all they could to avoid an accident and that the employer is not necessarily liable. 

Do I have a compensation claim?

With a workplace injury claim, some things we look at when we assess a claim are whether health and safety procedures were put in place and followed properly. Did faulty machinery or faulty work equipment play a part in accidents at work? Was there adequate training for operating equipment? Were employees provided with personal protective equipment where necessary?

Unsafe working environments and defective work equipment both suggest that negligence was behind your accident and the injury and suffering caused. Even if you are self-employed you have rights to make accident claims, as it’s your employer’s legal duty to ensure a safe working environment for workers.

Work accident claims are a speciality of ours and we will work tirelessly to secure compensation for your injuries. We are Manchester solicitors known for our success at personal injury claims, securing millions each year in settlements for our clients. We’d welcome the opportunity to work with you.

Employers and Injury Compensation Manchester

Clients often worry that if they bring a personal injury claim against their employer, their employer will suffer financially. However, it is an employer’s moral as well as a legal responsibility. Employer’s liability insurance ensures that the business is covered for these costs.

We often find that employers are relieved that an employee is compensated, because they have been hurt within the workplace, and they can and should be compensated for that.

What’s ‘no win no fee’?

We know that many of our clients may not be able to afford legal fees upfront. We offer the option of a conditional fee agreement or working on a ‘no win no fee’ basis.

No win no fee personal injury claims mean that we do all the work on work accident claims, and will only be paid if cases are successful. This reduces your financial risk when making compensation claims in Manchester.

Sometimes, we do a lot of work towards compensation claims but do not end up being paid with the no win no fee approach.

If we do win the work accident claim but cannot recover all our fees, we ask clients to pay for some of our fees from their compensation settlement. Some firms call this a success fee.

Suffered a workplace injury in Manchester and want to claim for an accident? Contact us online or call 0161 768 3175 to discuss your claim and ‘no win no fee’ agreements.

Will my work injury claim be successful?

Once we have all of the relevant information that the employer is obliged to disclose to us, we will be able to advise you whether we think that you have a claim. If we think that you don’t, we will tell you.  

Equally, if we think that you have a strong case against your employer, we will fight on your behalf to make sure that you are fully compensated for your accident at work. We are always honest about the likelihood of accident at work claims succeeding. 

Many work compensation claims are settled out of court, but if necessary we can also begin court proceedings to ensure that you receive the right compensation for your workplace injury. 

There is a time limit on accident claims and we can advise you on time limits as well as how the procedures work.

How much compensation could I win?

With accident claims, factors like where and when the accident happened, the seriousness of the work injury, and any employer negligence will have a bearing on your final settlement. Can the employer show that they followed safety regulations correctly, for example?

Additional factors are the financial losses that you have suffered as a result of your workplace accident. You may have incurred medical expenses and experienced loss of earnings, even if you’ve received statutory sick pay or have been able to claim benefits.

And finally, your injury compensation will take into account the physical and mental effects of your workplace injury. When we know all the details of your case we can advise on final settlement amounts and the likelihood of success.

Contact us for a no-obligation consultation – we can offer a no win no fee agreement for accident claims that reduce the financial risk.

Investigating accident claims in the North West

We will likely need to access your medical records as part of the accident at work claim since medical evidence of your work injury will be required as the case proceeds. An independent medical assessment may be required.

Other evidence we gather as we investigate workplace accidents is entries in your employer’s accident book and witness statements from people who were there when the accident occurred. If there is a workplace safety representative we will speak to them too.

Health and safety executive regulations and dangerous occurrences regulations are there to protect employees at work. We will investigate if these were followed in your accident case.
