Accidents at work - making a claim

Can I make a claim?

If you've been injured as a result of an accident at work, you may be entitled to claim compensation. Your employer has a duty of care to keep you safe at work, minimise risks and maintain health and safety standards. If you've been injured at work, you might have a case for compensation.

We provide clear and practical advice after an accident. We'll advise on your legal options, and the best course of action. Our team of specialist personal injury solicitors can help you:

  • Get the best treatment possible
  • Secure compensation for your injuries
  • Resolve any financial implications (e.g. loss of earnings)
  • Gain closure from those responsible for the accident

You're in control of the process at all times - we work around you. Our experts will take the time to understand your situation and what you want out of your claim. Everyone has a different story, recovery and ongoing needs. We're on your side at every step - securing a positive outcome is our priority.

No Win, No Fee personal injury claims

We offer a free risk assessment of your case and funding of your claim on a No Win, No Fee basis (subject to approval). If you want to know more about how to fund your claim, please get in touch. We'll explain your options, and the sources of funding available to you.

What will happen?

We know how daunting the legal process can feel. We’re committed to getting the best possible outcome for you, and believe this starts with making sure you feel comfortable from the offset.

Going to court is unlikely

It's very unlikely that your claim will go to court: most personal injury claims are resolved through a private settlement. As a rule, only the most extreme and disputed claims will go to court. In 2019, just 5% of claims handled by Tees went to court.

You have a choice

Your insurance company may tell you to appoint one of their 'panel solicitors' to represent you. However, you are under no obligation to use one of their 'panel solicitors'. It is your right to choose your own solicitor.

You are not alone

Our extremely capable team of personal injury specialists want the best result for you. The level of expertise within the team, combined with our holistic approach means that you are getting the best parts of what larger, and smaller, firms can offer.
