Solicitors in Essex & London
Our personal injury solicitors in offices possess a particular expertise in providing specialist legal advice for workplace accidents, many of which often involve serious and life-changing injuries, including fatalities.
Accidents at work claims have become more challenging following recent changes in the law. It is now more important than ever to obtain early disclosure of evidence/or preserve evidence and property to ensure that a claim can be properly investigated and assessed. Our personal injury solicitors often make applications to the court for what is known as a pre-action disclosure in order to obtain such evidence at the earliest opportunity.
Photographic and video evidence plays a crucial part in these claims; we have the resources and expertise to present your claim in a sufficiently clear and understandable way using these tools. Just as importantly, we are able to trace, identify and interview relevant witnesses at an early stage before memories fade and key evidence is lost.
Our personal injury solicitors in Essex and London have access to carefully selected experts in many fields relating to accidents at work. We have created a network of trusted independent experts through past cases, and also via our membership of the Association of Personal Injury Lawyers (APIL). We have dealt with a wide variety of workplace accidents, such as accidents on construction sites, in offices and factories and, in particular, falls from height.
We are well aware of potential contributory negligence issues (the employer alleging you are partly to blame) that can arise in these claims and our lawyers will advise you on any implications of this. It is crucial to carefully consider this issue as it can have a significant impact on the extent of damages recovery.
Our personal injury lawyers carefully assess claims to determine if an employer is likely to be found liable to pay compensation. If so, the claim will be proactively managed and pursued on your behalf.
We offer a free initial meeting to discuss your potential claim relating to an accident at work, assess the merits of any action and to try and give you an indication of the compensation you may be entitled to, as well as the likely duration of your case. We act for most of our clients on a no win no fee basis, or under a legal expenses insurance policy. We have disabled access to our Hornchurch, Brentwood and Upminster offices. If more convenient, we are more than happy to visit our clients at home or in hospital.
Due to the recent Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak we are currently offering appointments by telephone and some video calling services. Our offices are also open with comprehensive safety measures in place.
