Accidents at Work Claim

An Accident at Work can happen for a number of reasons. Whilst we are at work our employer has a responsibility to do everything they can to make sure the work place is safe for their employees to work in.

Unfortunately in some cases accidents at work occur due to the negligence of an employer, these accidents can range from minor scrapes to broken bones that require weeks of rest, through to serious life changing injuries.

If you have had an accident in the work-place that was the fault of somebody else, we can help you to make an accident at work claim.

Most work accidents, including injuries and illness, can be caused by a number of things. Accidents can occur because a lack of correct training, faulty or incorrect equipment, which could also result in exposure to deadly chemicals and substances.


RIDDOR stands for the Reporting of Injuries, Diseases and Dangerous Occurrences Regulations. RIDDOR Regulations require that employers in control of work premises report workplace incidents, such as accidents at work.

Incidents that must be reported include deaths, occupational diseases, dangerous occurrences and gas incidents.

You can find out more about RIDDOR on the HSE website – what RIDDOR means.
