We represent clients who have been injured at work in many different industries and jobs, including people working in factories, hospitals, new home building sites and on the road. We also represent families bereaved as the result of an accident at work.
How we can help you
The legal basis for a compensation claim arising from an accident at work can be complex and therefore difficult for the injured person to know whether they have a case or not or who the claim should be against. There are rules, regulations and laws relating to safety at work and who is responsible, which can include the person or company in control, if the injured person was self-employed or a casual worker, including workers from outside the UK. We are happy to have a free, initial conversation with you about the circumstances of the accident and whether you might be entitled to bring a claim or before you make a decision, even if only to put your mind at rest.
We can also talk to you about what will happen and reassure you that the law prevents your employer from discriminating against you and is not entitled to end your employment if you bring a claim.

I cannot speak highly enough of Ann Houghton. She took control of the case and was always calm and easy to speak to. She made time to deal with any query and helped make the process bearable, as it was the most stressful thing I have ever been through. Ann made the whole process seem so straight forward. She was excellent at keeping me informed, whilst at the same time protecting me from much of the stresses and complexities involved. I always knew what and when things were happening and what was expected of me. Any advice I needed she responded to quickly. I had complete trust and faith in what she was advising and was more than happy to be guided by her judgement.Anonymous.
