Accident at Work Solicitors Berkshire
Find out how much your personal injury claim may be worth
Over the years, new rules and regulations have been put in place to reduce accidents at work; however, accidents do still occur. Many of these accidents could have been avoided by employers implementing the correct measures and procedures to minimise the risk of an accident at work from taking place. If you have sustained an injury at work as a result of an accident that was not your fault, then you may be able to make a “no win, no fee” personal injury claim against your employer.
If it can be established that someone else is responsible for your injuries, such as your employer, a colleague, or a company performing work at your place of work. In that case, you will have the basis of a claim for compensation.
Your Employers Responsibilities
Employers are obligated by law to provide safe work conditions and a healthy environment. Therefore, it is part of their duty to ensure that their employees are safe from any potential risks that can cause injuries and anything that may cause them to get any industrial diseases.

How Much Compensation For An Accident At Work Claim?
If you suffer an accident at work that was not your fault, you may be able to make a work accident claim. The compensation awarded to you for your injuries will be dependent on the severity of the injury and the level of pain and suffering you sustained. Without all the details of the injury, it is hard to value a compensation claim. Therefore, your compensation will be measured through general damages and special damages.
General Damages will be based on recent case law and guidelines set out by the Judicial College.
Special Damages is based on additional financial losses. Your additional losses can include the following:
- Loss of earnings if you required time off due to the accident.
- Travel costs – for travel to and from medical appointments
- Parking costs at medical appointments
- Costs of any care received
- Medical treatment costs
You should ensure that you keep all receipts and invoices for your additional losses, as these will be required to prove your loss. This will help you gain a higher compensation claim and will help you to claim back any additional expenses you incurred.
