Accidents In The Workplace

Injuries at work can be caused by almost anything, including faulty equipment, falling objects, slip and trip hazards, noise, dangerous chemicals and a lack of training or personal protective equipment. Whether you’re a temporary or full-time employee, a self-employed contractor or you have been hired through an agency, you are entitled to make a claim for compensation for the injuries you have suffered as a result of negligence.

Different industries place workers at different levels of risk. This is because the nature of some roles are considerably more dangerous than others. At Aequitas Legal, we have handled claims concerning many different industries. However, environments in which accidents most often occur include:

  • Construction and building sites
  • Factory Accident Claims
  • Farms
  • Offices
  • Warehouses
  • Dangerous Machinery Accidents

  • burns, head injuries and fatalities. No two claims are the same, which is why it is
  • crucial that you speak to a personal injury team that understands the intricacies of
  • compensation claims.

"Process was made simple"

My experience with Aequitas Legal was excellent overall. The process was made very simple and took up very little time on my part, particularly with use of the 'InCase' App and emails. My caseworker, Jane Hargreaves, was very approachable and friendly, and responded to queries promptly. I was expecting my case to take the best part of 6 months to resolve but was settled with my cheque in the post within just a few months. Very impressed at such a stress free and innovative experience and would recommend to others.

Aequitas Legal, a very professional company from Katie who helped with my initial inquiry to Suzanne, the solicitor, who handled my case. I was kept updated regularly on all aspects and developments and given sound advice regarding my claim. I particularly liked using the App on my mobile which was full of useful information. Great customer service with prompt responses to questions and queries, I would not hesitate to recommend them.
Thank you for a quick and easy settlement.
