Occupational accidents require a specialised approach, due to the combination of identifying the party at fault and obtaining immediate and effective medical support to treat injuries.
We use a comprehensive methodology to seek claims from occupational accidents, with exact steps until vindication.
Serious injuries in the workplace are traumatic events that leave their mark on the lives of the victims and their families, often for long periods of time, if not forever. Serious injuries often occur in heavy industry, especially when raising and transporting goods and other items. However, sometimes workplace injuries can be caused by something wholly unforeseen, such as slippery floors or an unstable ladder.
Regardless of their occupational status, victims are entitled both to moral and financial compensation, and to support in order to restore their health. Granted, compensation payments may indeed offset some of the salaries lost during the time an employee is recovering from an injury, but they’re usually insufficient to cover the actual cost of an occupational accident, especially when said accident has caused serious physical health issues.
Claims for employee compensation are often complicated by insurance companies and employers, which makes it all the more important for the case to be handled by an experienced lawyer, capable of maximising the compensation employees can claim.
