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.

Hernia mesh legal case for compensation

the nhs may be heading for a summer crisis!

Over the past few years, hernia mesh implants have been at the centre of growing controversy, with many patients telling of the painful and debilitating complications caused by the devices. The scandal is wide-reaching, as tens of thousands of people who have undergone hernia mesh surgery could be confronted with complications. We have been pursuing a hernia mesh legal case for many people over the last few years, and we want to remind those affected that they may still have a chance to claim compensation.

Surgical mesh is one of the most common treatments for hernias, with surgeons using the mesh to hold in displaced tissue. The use of hernia mesh has long been approved by the MHRA (Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency), but it has since been suggested that the clinical reviews of the product’s safety are lacking.

We believe it is vital to hold the responsible parties accountable for any harm they may have caused patients, and one way to do this is to bring medical negligence claims. If it is established that your doctor or a healthcare professional breached their duty of care through you being recommending hernia mesh as a treatment, you may be able to recover compensation for any harm caused.

Construction site claims for compensation

excavation work deaths

Given the heavy objects and powerful machinery in use, construction sites can be dangerous places to work if risks are not managed effectively. For this reason, construction companies must follow strict health and safety regulations to eliminate as many dangers as possible. Where the failure to ensure site safety causes workers to be injured, the victims may be able to make construction site claims to recover compensation for their injuries.

Everyone deserves to be safe in their workplace, and working as a manual labourer does not mean you should accept risks to your physical safety. In the worst cases, construction site injuries can cause life-altering complications, so it is important to ensure that any negligence that put the injured person at risk is accounted for.

As specialist injury lawyers, we have successfully represented victims for a number of construction site cases like this, including a case we recently reported on here which we won for a victim of a defective scaffold accident. If you are concerned about the circumstances in which your construction site injury arose, you can contact us for free, no-obligation advice on your potential compensation claim.

Compensation for being sent home from hospital

care

Whenever we are admitted to hospital, we expect that doctors and nurses will care for us for as long as necessary before discharging us. This means, as much as possible, health professionals must eliminate any risk of their patient’s condition worsening after they are sent home from hospital.

However, a premature discharge from hospital could cause severe consequences for your health and, in some cases, it could amount to medical negligence. If a doctor has not ensured that you are absolutely ready to leave hospital, and your health has been adversely affected, you may have a compensation claim to make.

As specialists in medical negligence claims, we have sadly encountered countless cases of patients being let down by health professionals. Besides their pain and worsened health, many of our clients have also felt betrayed by those who were supposed to protect them. However, by making a compensation claim, you can fight to achieve some form of justice for any harm caused.

Hospitals failing to meet promise of safe maternity unit

doctor talking to female patient

According to recent reports, a number of NHS hospitals that said they had a safe maternity unit have had their claims reportedly proven wrong. Upon review, it was reportedly judged that seven trusts conducted false self-assessments of their maternity services, and they may now have to repay millions of pounds to regulators, according to The Independent. In reality, a number of babies may have tragically died as a result of poor care.

The news comes not long after an inquiry into the reported ‘systemic racism’ of NHS maternity services was launched, suggesting that wider failings are at play. Some 14 NHS trusts are understood to have reportedly failed to meet at least one safety action to be implemented, meaning concerns over maternity care continues to be a widespread issue across the health service.

Those affected by failings in relation to maternity matters may be able to bring claims on the basis of medical negligence if it has occurred. It is unacceptable that many mothers and infants may have been harmed as a result of negligent practices, which is why we are encouraging anyone who has been affected to contact us for advice.
