We work on a No Win No Fee basis to recover compensation for work accident victims whether they were employed, self-employed or just visiting a business at the time of the accident.
UK employers have a duty of care to ensure that their work environment meets minimum safety standards. You may have been injured as you may not have received adequate training for your job or you may have been provided with faulty equipment to work.
