 In Accidents At Work - Case Study

Oakwood Solicitors will qualify any accident at work to determine liability and once this has been confirmed they can make the arrangements to process the claim on a no win no fee basis. There are important questions that need answering before liability can be determined. Oakwood will guide you through this process.

In the case of Mr C from Hull he slipped on ice in the depot yard at work sustaining a painful injury to his knee. Most falls result in painful bruises and abrasions but falling on a knee exaggerates the normal movements of the knee which can often cause tears and fractures. Medical professionals will ask for a description of the fall how your body was positioned and the severity of the pain to help them make a diagnosis and decide on the best course of treatment.

Knee injuries frequently require on-going medical treatment and assessment which will require time off work.

Mr C was not to blame for his work accident or the injuries he suffered like many others who have suffered a slip or fall at work therefore his compensation claim was accepted along with valuable advice from Oakwood Solicitors in Leeds.

It is estimated that the cost to society each year for slips trips and falls is around £800 million. Employers are liable for any injuries that are the result of an accident on their premises and should be carrying out regular risk assessments to ensure that hazards are quickly identified and removed. The colder months require particular attention to safety as the rain ice and snow increase the risk of slips and falls.

Oakwood will not ask their clients for any payment up front when they accept a claim. Once they have qualified a genuine claim they are confident they can secure compensation. Should a case be unsuccessful for any reason Oakwood will not charge their clients any legal fees. Successful claimants receive 100% of the compensation they are awarded. So it really is that simple you don?t pay a penny win or lose.
