Accidents at Work

At Diamond Heron Solicitors we act for private clients who have been injure at work, we also have trade union clients to whom we provide a full range of work relate services.  Employees are protected by legislation in respect of safety in the work place and over the years we have recovered thousands of pounds for employees who have been injured by negligent employers who have not met the required standards of health and safety in the workplace.  The type of cases we have succeeded against employers include

- manual handling cases

- slips and trips in the workplace

- stress in the workplace (bullying and harassment)

- defective work equipment

- asbestosis, mesothelioma and plural plaques

- personal protective equipment 

Our membership of the Association of Personal Injury Lawyers (APIL) allows us access to experts and training that enables us to keep ahead of employers representatives in securing compensation for our clients.  We can obtain insurance to cove your legal costs if the employer refuses to accept responsibility for your injuries. 

You may be entitled to compensation not only for your injuries  but also for any loss of earnings suffered, any medical fees incurred or any loss of amenity (such as being unable to play football golf or other hobby)
