Accident at work claim

Have you been injured at work? You may be able to make an accident at work claim.

If you have been involved in an accident at work which was not your fault, or have sustained an illness or disease, we can help you make a claim for compensation. We will need to prove that your injury or illness was caused by somebody else’s negligence; for example your employer or a contractor.

At CFG Law, we realise the stress people are put under when they have had an accident at work. Injuries can sometimes mean long periods of absence from work, which may result in a loss of earnings, as well as paying for any medical assistance required.

Claiming compensation can help cover these costs. We can also look to alleviate these financial stresses by securing interim payments from the Defendants to cover medical fees, as well as getting you the help you need to speed up your recovery.

I feel so lucky to have chosen CFG to handle my case as when you have an accident you don’t know who to trust. From day one they made me feel secure, reassured and they also kept me fully informed throughout the whole process. I know that I received first class legal advice, and they used top experts to support my case. I can’t fault their service and am thankful for everything that they did for me.

Our Services - Accident at work claim

Our experienced serious injury solicitors have a track record of success in helping clients with many different types of injuries and illnesses, including:

Your Employer’s Duty of Care

In the UK, an employer has a duty of care to ensure that all working environments are safe and appropriate for their employees to carry out the work expected of them. They must carry out a risk assessment on all activities and have regular checks on all equipment used to ensure it reaches adequate standards.

Within their duty of care, employers should:

  • Provide the correct machinery and tools and make sure they are in a safe condition.
  • Have a safe and tidy workplace to avoid hazards – for example, your employer must ensure that corridors are kept clear.
  • Give correct training to all members of staff – for example, ensuring staff know how to work machinery or how to lift correctly.
  • Provide the relevant safety equipment, such as hard hats, safety gloves, high visibility jackets, dust masks and ear defenders.

If your employer fails in this duty of care and you become injured as a result, you may be able to make a compensation claim. You can also make a claim if the accident was caused by the negligence of another member of staff.

Unfortunately, workplace accidents happen frequently and can range from minor injuries to very serious head and brain injuries, spinal cord injuries and multiple injuries.

Making an accident at work claim

Don’t be put off making an accident at work claim against your employer. Your employer cannot dismiss you for making a compensation claim.

All businesses by law must have insurance which covers them for employee accidents in the workplace. If you win your work injury claim, it is not your employer who pays. Your damages will be paid by the insurance company.

By making an accident at work claim, you are also highlighting these dangers, ensuring that someone else will not be injured in the same way.

Helping with your personal injury claim is only part of our service – helping you to get your life back on track after a serious injury is our primary aim.

Why choose us?

Our experienced and expert team of solicitors specialise in accident at work claims. Our award-winning Client First Service is all about providing a service that we would be proud to offer to members of our own families. We ask ourselves 'what would we do if it was our family member?'

By doing this and by listening to what our clients and their families say they need, we've learnt that whilst recovering compensation is essential, it is the extra things we do and the support we provide that help makes our Client First Service stand out.

We understand that no two injuries are the same and that you and your family's needs and requirements will change over time. That is why our Client First Service is designed to meet your individual needs, whatever they may be, whenever they may arise.


No Win No Fee - Accident at work claim

Our service operates on a No Win No Fee basis, meaning you don't need to worry about the financial costs of claiming compensation from an injury sustained at work.

All enquiries are FREE & private, with no obligation to continue with a claim.



All of your team will, of course, be experts and specialists in serious injury but there’s much more to what we do.

Our Client First Service means that our solicitors work with fewer clients than is typical in the legal sector, ensuring they have the time to dedicate to working collaboratively with you and your family. 

We work intensively and proactively on your claim, resulting in full compensation for your injuries without unnecessary delay.


Lack of funding should not get in the way of you receiving treatment and support when you need it. This is why we have an emergency fund to help plug any gaps in your support straight away.

Examples of our emergency fund in action include paying for travel expenses for your family to visit in hospital, funding additional treatment and therapy to assist your recovery and addressing any immediate financial concerns you may have.

We can also help with benefits applications and provide support with appeal processes and signposting to charities and other emergency funding.


We have Client Support Managers with expert clinical experience involved as part of your team from the start. They are able to provide well-informed guidance on available support and treatment options, helping you and your family to make the right decisions for you, as well as plugging any gaps in the information provided by your treating team.

Your Client Support Manager can also liaise with your treating team to help with discharge to suitable accommodation, including arranging and facilitating care packages and sourcing aids and equipment to improve your function and independence.

We work in collaboration with health and social care, as well as charities to ensure we all pull together to enable you to achieve your best possible outcome and lead a fulfilled life.


Sustaining a serious injury inevitably has a significant psychological, as well as a physical impact on you and your family. 

We understand that it is important that all psychological and emotional factors are given as much attention as any physical injury to achieve the best outcomes.

That is why we listen carefully to you and your family to identify any possible underlying psychological barriers and emotional needs and ensure they are addressed as part of your support plan.
