Workplace accident injury claims

How DAS Law can help you

If you have suffered from an accident at work, our experienced team of personal injury lawyers and network of support specialists can provide you with practical legal advice and representation to get you the rehabilitation, care and financial support you deserve.

These are some of the outcomes we can achieve for you:

  • Obtaining compensation for your workplace injury.
  • Putting you in contact with leading rehabilitation, counselling organisations and support agencies that can provide you with practical assistance and morale support.
  • We can provide you with advice about limiting the financial impact of your workplace injury.
  • Important things to consider

    Here are some things you should be aware of regarding your workplace accident.

    • Our lawyers are highly experienced in handling accident claims which have happened in a wide range of working environments, including factories, construction sites, warehouses and farms.
    • In most cases we can secure interim payments to help prevent financial hardship enabling you to concentrate on treatment and rehabilitation.
    • We understand that you may be reluctant to bring a claim against your employer, but that should not deter you from seeking justice if the accident was not your fault.
    • You do not need to visit our offices. We can arrange meetings at your convenience at your home or hospital, or over the phone at a time that is suitable for you.
    • In most cases, personal injury claims must be made within three years of the occurrence of the injury or the date on which you became aware of it.

    How much will it cost?

    If you would like DAS Law to help you with your workplace accident, there are a number of ways of funding your legal costs, including: 

    Legal Expenses Insurance (LEI)

    If you have a motor or home insurance policy which includes LEI cover, your legal costs may be covered by your policy (subject to the terms and conditions of the policy). If you are unsure if your insurance policy includes LEI cover, we will check this with you.

    Conditional Fee Agreement (No Win, No Fee)

    If you do not have LEI cover, we can still deal with fatal injury claims through a Conditional Fee Agreement (CFA) – commonly known as ‘No Win, No Fee’. We also assist our clients in obtaining After The Event (ATE) insurance at no upfront cost.

    If you have legal expenses insurance, your legal costs may be covered by your policy

    By entering into a CFA (subject to our terms of business) you have to pay only when we are successful in winning you compensation. You pay nothing if you lose your claim. This way you can ensure that your personal finances are not at risk when pursuing your personal injury claim. This option means that you won’t have to pay anything if your compensation claim isn’t successful.

    Our personal injury specialists will be happy to explain these options to you.

    Accidents in the workplace can cause a variety of injuries; some may take a few weeks to heal, but in other cases you could be left with permanent damage that could have an impact on your family and finances for the rest of your life.
