Are you eligible for accident at work compensation?

If you have been unfortunate and have been involved in an accident at work you could be entitled to compensation from your employer.

If your accident was caused by employer negligence call 0800 633 5730 to find out how much you could claim.

At Imperium Law we have years of experience winning compensation for injured workers, one such case example was that of Mr Y who was awarded £7,500 after injuring his leg falling over the raised forks of a fork lift truck.

Whatever the reason or nature of your accident you may have a case against your employer if you were injured whilst at work and it was not your fault.

While the vast majority of employers follow health and safety guidelines to the letter and protect their workers accident do still happen.

A call to Imperium Law can get you the payout you deserve for your pain and suffering.

In some cases accidents happen because of employer negligence, for instance perhaps you were not properly trained to use equipment at work and suffered an injury, or slipped and hurt your back on a wet floor or fell from height having not been given the correct equipment.

Are you entitled to claim?

UK employers are legally responsible for their staff's safety and welfare. All UK businesses must have liability insurance and comply with UK Health and Safety Regulations. In the event of an accident, if it can be proved your employer was at fault then you are entitled to make a claim against their insurers.

Even if it is shown you were partly at fault, you may still be able to claim compensation if it can be proved your employer was the main instigator of your injury.
