Accidents at work

Despite significant advances in health and safety at work over the years, accidents still happen. When they do, the effects can be devastating, no more so than when the accident results in brain or spinal injury.


Leigh Day serious injury lawyers are expert in successfully handling claims for people who have suffered accidents at work such as those occurring in a factory, on a construction site or even in the office or at school. Injuries at work happen for number of reasons, often because the employer has breached one of a number of laws covering health and safety at work. We have a wide experience of understanding workplace accidents to ensure we can deal with liability issues rapidly and help you start to focus on rehabilitation and rebuilding your life. We have secured substantial payments for clients even where liability remains an issue.

We often work in conjunction with the Police, Health & Safety Executive and other regulatory organisations to ensure we are at the forefront of investigations into your accident. That also means we can deal with other parties on your behalf, so the additional worry is taken off your shoulders.

Serious injury specialist law firm Leigh Day is recognised as one of the country's best firms of solicitors able to represent clients injured in the workplace with complex and serious brain and spinal injury claims. We have secured millions of pounds in compensation for clients who have been injured at work. Examples of just some of those cases include acting for a worker who experienced a serious brain injury after being hit by falling steel pallets and acting for a young construction site worker who suffered severe crush injuries from a falling JCB.
