Industrial accident compensation claims

Industrial accidents cover a broad range of diverse and often complex claims; the details and specifics will differ given that some accidents will be far more serious than others.

Industrial accidents are not as common as they used to be due to the fact that health and safety measures have improved. However, multiple examples of serious accidents in the workplace are still being recorded.

Industrial accident solicitors

By law, it is compulsory for your employer to ensure the health and safety of all employees, in addition to making clear and concise records of any industrial accident that happens in the workplace. It is considered a criminal offence for any employer to not comply with health and safety standards, and as a result your employer may be prosecuted if found to have put employees at risk of harm, illness or injury. However, even if an employer is not considered to be at fault, the sufferer could still be entitled to a number of benefits, as employers have a duty to safeguard the wellbeing of their employees.

Workers in any profession who are injured in an accident that was not their fault could be entitled to make an industrial accident claim in order to receive compensation for their injuries and financial loss. Industrial accidents can occur at any time in any job, which means that the field of industrial accident claims is diverse and sometimes complex. If an accident has happened to you at work in the past and you were unaware you may be entitled to claim for compensation, get in touch with Stephensons and we can clarify if you are still eligible. Unfortunately if there is not sufficient evidence to back up your historical claim this can make things difficult, but our expert team are available to help and advise you in any way possible. If you have a long-lasting injury or illness due to an industrial accident years ago, you may still be entitled to claim.

Some industrial accidents can be much more serious than others, from minor injuries, through accidents resulting in the victim being unfit for work to serious injuries and in some cases death. If you have been involved in an industrial accident, you may be entitled to compensation from the person or company deemed responsible.

All it takes to find out if you have grounds for a case is a call to our industrial accident specialists. We have years of experience in dealing with industrial accident claims involving everything from small businesses to large multinational corporations. Our expert solicitors can secure the compensation you deserve in order to repay medical expenses and ongoing rehabilitation and also compensate for any loss of earning caused by the accidents.
