Injuries & Accidents At Work are Very common

If you have been injured or had an accident in the course of your employment, or an accident on your way to or from work or during a work break, you may be entitled to workers' compensation or common law damages, or both.

Injuries at or to or from work are very common and no need to be stoic and soldier on, you have the right to seek compensation if injured.

We can help identify if you can claim compensation and how much you may get, chat, call or email us and we'll be glad to assess your claim.

If my injury is only minor, do I have a claim worth pursuing?

People sometimes think that because they have suffered what they consider to be a minor injury, (such as a whiplash or jarring injury in an accident) which seems to improve in the weeks or months following the accident, that it is not worthwhile making a claim.

Unfortunately, what often appears to be a minor injury following an accident, can end up being quite a debilitating injury over time.

We've seen enough injuries over the years to know, it costs nothing to check and assess if you have a claim and better to check than not.
