ACCIDENTS AT WORK
Accidents at work are very common and can happen to any of us. By law, every employer has a duty of care to provide safe working environment conditions and if they do not adhere to these regulations, they are breaking the law. The responsibilities of maintaining a safe working environment can come in many different forms, such as by testing machinery on a regular basis, providing adequate training and safety equipment, or informing employees of the potential dangers in the work place and how to avoid them.
So if you have suffered a personal injury at work through no fault of your own and would like to make a claim for "work accident" compensation, we are here to help.
Injuries such as trips and slips are often known as 'public liability' claims. They can include, injuries sustained on council properties, sports facilities, in hospitals (but not as a result of medical negligence), public transport buildings, or other places where the owner or occupier has control of the premises.
CICA (Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority)
We have a criminal injuries compensation department with many years' experience in compensation claims for the victims of crime.
The Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority (CICA) was established in 1964 to manage the criminal injuries compensation scheme in Britain. It is responsible for the administering of criminal injury compensation to those who have been injured as a result of crime.
Since its introduction it has provided some tangible acknowledgement of society's sympathy for innocent victims of violent crime.
The CICA can award anything from £1,000 up to £500,000.
