Accident At Work Solicitors Warrington
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 follow employment laws and keep work conditions safe 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 or illnesses such as industrial diseases.

How Much Compensation For An Accident At Work Claim?
If you suffered an accident at work, you may be wondering ‘how much compensation can I get for an accident at work claim’, but unfortunately, we cannot give you an exact figure for the amount of compensation you will receive. Instead, compensation will be calculated through general damages and special damages.
General Damages refers to compensation for your injury, including your pain, suffering and loss of amenity. This will be calculated based on recent case law and guidelines set out by the Judicial College.
Special Damages refer to the additional financial losses incurred as the result of your injury. 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. We will ensure that we offer the best advice we can in order for you to get the compensation you deserve for your workplace accident claim.
