What can I claim for?

We are 'No Win-No Fee' solicitors and so you do not need to worry about paying our legal costs.

After suffering a work injury you may find that you need to have time off work which could mean a loss of income. At Imperium Law as well as helping you to claim for pain and suffering, we also help you claim for financial loss.

If due to the severity of your injury you are unable to return to work, we can also help you claim for future loss of earnings and any ongoing nursing or home adaptation costs.

Claim case example:

Our personal injury team recently won £8,750 compensation for a worker who suffered injury when she fell from a ladder at work.

We were able to show that Ms. M had notified her employer that she had a medical condition which caused her to lose her balance. She was assured that she would not be required to climb ladders or work at height as the risk of her falling was too great.

In spite of her employer's understanding of her condition, a manager insisted she carry out a task requiring her to climb a ladder, she protested but was just told to get on with the job. Unfortunately she lost her balance, fell and was injured. A claim was made and compensation was awarded for her pain and suffering.
