Work Injury Compensation Lawyers Sheffield
If you are injured in your place of work, you may be entitled to claim compensation. Our solicitors** in Sheffield have extensive experience of dealing with this type of personal injury case and will be able to examine your circumstances and guide you on whether or not you can make a claim.
Injuries could include physical harm, psychological damage, or illnesses or diseases caused by your place of work or working environment. For example, you may have developed a lung condition due to working with asbestos. You may suffer from a psychological affliction after harassment or abuse in your workplace. All these could possibly be cases to make a claim for compensation.
Work Injury Claims Solicitors
You must make sure that any accident or injury that happens at work is properly recorded. There should be an accident book, but if there is not, then write out the details of the incident and send a copy to your employer. This may be an obligation of your contract. You should take legal guidance from our specialist lawyers as quickly as possible to make sure that you fulfill any obligations on your side.
You may need compensation to pay for financial losses you have incurred due to your injury. Perhaps you can no longer work, or perhaps you have had to make alterations to your home or invest in specialist medical equipment if your injuries are severe. Perhaps you want to see justice done, if someone else was responsible for your injuries, and make sure that the same thing does not happen to anybody else. Our Sheffield-based solicitors** will look at your situation and decide on the most appropriate course of action. You may decide to take legal action in a civil court, make a claim to the Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority or apply for a criminal compensation order. There are also some government compensation schemes for certain circumstances.
Our Sheffield solicitors** will also be able to guide you on the amount of compensation you may be entitled to receive, whether in general damages (payment for pain or suffering) or special damages (to cover specific financial loss).
