Pelvic injury claims for compensation

workplace accidents

A pelvic injury can present the injured person with significant pain, discomfort and mobility issues. In the worst cases, they can leave the victim with permanent difficulties, which is why it is important that victims can seek justice where they have come to harm through the fault of someone else. Those who have sustained an injury to their pelvis due to the negligence of another person or a company could be eligible to pursue pelvic injury claims for compensation.

As specialists in injury claims, we have represented thousands of clients who have been injured due to the avoidable negligence of another party. Injuries can be frustrating enough in themselves, so it can feel like an even greater injustice when they are caused through no fault of your own.

We want to empower as many victims as possible to seek the justice they deserve. Anyone who needs expert advice and representation about a potential compensation claim can contact our expert team for free, no-obligation advice on their case.

Claim for a serious injury from a slip at work

slip injury compensation

Employers have a duty of care to their staff members in terms of maintaining a safe workplace, but some are more diligent in their responsibilities than others. It may seem simple to disregard a loose step or a wet floor, but these hazards can cause significant harm when they catch an employee off guard. If you have suffered a serious injury from a slip at work, you may be eligible for a compensation claim.

The law demands that employers adhere to strict health and safety regulations as a means of protecting their employees. Where they fail to do so, and an accident consequently occurs, the injured person can assert their rights with a personal injury claim.

As specialists in injury claims, we have represented many clients for workplace injury cases. We know it can feel daunting to make a claim against your employer, but they should have insurance for this exact purpose, so there should be nothing stopping you from bringing a case.

Claiming for a serious injury from a fall

roof falls

We all suffer from small trips and falls over the course of our lives. In some cases, the consequences of a serious injury from a fall can be devastating.

A fall can induce pain and/or reduced mobility in any number of body parts, and the effects do not stop at physical damage. They can often provoke long-term mental health struggles as a result of the harm a serious injury can cause to your quality of life. While such incidents may not be reversible, compensation claims can often help to mitigate the impact on a victim’s life, providing recompense for the daily difficulties they now have to face.

A serious injury from a fall can arise in all manner of situations and environments, even in those where the risk is not overt. It is important to equip everyone with information regarding the actions they can take in the aftermath of such an unfortunate event.

Slips, trips and falls at work – when can you claim?

slip at work injury

In the workplace, we’re protected by the law which puts a duty on employers to provide a safe work environment for all employees. The Health and Safety Act 1974 imposes this legal duty because all employees deserve to be protected whilst working.

Unfortunately, workplace injuries are not uncommon.

Slip, trips and falls are extremely common and make up a large percentage of all work-related injuries. There are various other laws that further protect employees by putting rules in place to prevent specific injuries from happening in the first place. The Management of Health and Safety at Work Regulation 1999 requires all employers to assess the workplace for any potential risks.
