Our specialist personal injury team at Bridge McFarland can help you recover compensation from your employers.

There are many causes for accidents in the workplace.  Some of the most common accidents that we encounter at Bridge McFarland arise due to:

  • Slipping and tripping hazards
  • Heavy lifting
  • A lack of or inadequate personal protective equipment
  • Faulty or poorly maintained work equipment and surroundings
  • Working at height
  • Repetitive tasks
  • General poor health and safety management

Accidents in the workplace resulting in injuries can lead to a person being absent from work and losing earnings.  There can also be instances when a person is unable to return to their employment due to the nature or seriousness of the injuries they have suffered or instead, cannot return to the role they held before.  They may lose earnings for the rest of their life. 

On some occasions, the injuries suffered can be so serious that there are other things to consider for the future such as that person’s needs.  Whatever the nature of your injuries and the nature of your employment, you want to know that you are going to be compensated for what has happened to you and as far as possible, put back into the position that you were before the accident occurred. 

With the proper advice, you can achieve this and Bridge McFarland can assist you and guide you through the process of your claim.  Bridge McFarland have many years experience of working with clients who have been injured in the workplace, so if you have an enquiry, please get in touch with a member of the team.

FAQs
If I have an accident at work, what should I do to report it?
If you have an accident at work, you should take steps to report it to your manager and also to record the details of the accident and the injuries sustained in your employer’s accident book. If you are absent from work for a period of seven days, then your employer must submit a report to the Health & Safety Executive.
Should I try to make a claim myself?
You are of course entitled to bring a personal injury claim yourself however, this is not advisable as it is important you receive advice in terms of the value of your claim so you do not receive a settlement that is lower than what you are entitled to. We can advise you in this regard.
How long after my accident do I have to make a claim?
You have three years to pursue a claim for personal injury. If you are bringing a claim because of an accident that occurred at work, on the street, in someone’s premises or in a vehicle, the three years start to run from the date of your accident.
