Accidents at Work Claims

If an accident at work has left you injured, perhaps unable to work or enjoy the things you once used to, the dedicated personal injury lawyers at Pickering & Butters are ready to help with a caring, professional service.

We can help you get you back on your feet as quickly as possible, working closely with you to understand how the accident has changed things for you. Our core focus is on helping you return to normal, and if that means arranging care or rehabilitative treatment through our close contact network, that’s what we’ll do.

The fact that the accident wasn’t your fault and occurred during the course of your employment could mean that you are able to claim compensation for your suffering, for anxiety and for your financial losses.

You no doubt have lots of questions, such as what you can claim for, how much you can claim, who you will claim against, and how the work accident claims process works. Perhaps you are worried about claiming against your employer? Whatever you need to know, we are here to answer all your questions and put your mind at rest.

Free initial interview

Why not take advantage of our free initial interview? We can see you either at our offices, or visit you at home or in hospital at a time to suit you. We can talk through what happened, discuss the likely outcome of your claim and let you know whether you have a good chance of success.

Remember, in many cases your right to make a claim for a work related accident may be subject to a strict time cut-off, so it is never too early to act.

Call our accident at work solicitors today, and let us put your mind at rest.
