Why Taylor Law?
Accident at work claims
Compensation for injuries at work
If you have been injured while at work or during the course of carrying out your work, then you may be entitled to a compensation payment. At Taylor Law we can represent you on a no win, no fee basis to bring a personal injury claim on your behalf.
If you have been involved in an accident or other incident at work that has left you injured and which was not your fault, you may be entitled to a payment. This will compensate you for the pain and suffering you have experienced as well as for any loss of earnings, psychological damage, reduction in quality of life and expenses you have incurred because of the accident.
At Taylor Law we understand how difficult it is to bring a claim against your employer. However, they have a duty to keep you safe during the course of your employment and they must also have insurance in place to provide cover for employee accidents.
Our team are friendly and approachable, as well as being experts in the field of personal injury. If you ask us to represent you in your work accident compensation claim, we will provide advice and guidance to ensure that you understand the process and that you have the support you need. We will work proactively on your behalf to obtain compensation without undue delay and we will ensure we are always available to speak to you to update you as to progress and to answer any questions you may have.
Work accidents and injuries
Work conditions can be dangerous, with some of the most common injuries happening in the following ways:
- Slipping, tripping or falling
- Moving machinery or falling objects
- Lifting heavy or awkward items
- Exposure to noise or chemicals
- Repetitive strain injuries
Your employer may be at fault through requiring you to work in dangerous conditions, failing to maintain equipment, allowing situations to arise that could cause slips, trips or falls, poor safety procedures in relation to hazardous materials or failure to ensure shelving or scaffolding is safe.
Making a legal claim for injuries following an accident at work
If you are injured at work, you should ensure that you seek proper medical attention and that the incident is reported to your manager and noted in the work accident book. You should also ask those who witnessed what happened to make statements while the incident is still fresh in their minds.
It is advisable to seek legal representation as soon as possible so that all of the relevant information can be collected. If you instruct us to act for you, we will put together statements from you and the witnesses and write to your employer or their solicitor or insurer and ask them whether they will admit liability for your accident.
We have a team of medical specialists who will be able to assess your injuries and prepare reports advising on the extent of the damage you have suffered and your likely future prognosis. These reports will be used in negotiating the amount of any payment made to you.
Cases are often settled without the need for litigation, however if your case does go to court our team will prepare a strong case and instruct an expert personal injury barrister to represent you.

“Had trouble in the past with firms not having a regular point of contact and having to chase up personally for information. Found Taylor Law to be extremely well equipped to manage every element of my case and got me the outcome I asked for in our initial meeting. Wouldn’t use anyone else in the future or even consider it”.
