Accidents At Work

Each year thousands of people are injured through accidents at work. If this has happened to you, Treanors can help you decide whether to make a claim for compensation. We will handle all the arrangements on your behalf taking the stress away and making the process as straight forward as possible.


Even if you were self-employed you may still be able to claim if the accident was not your fault. The same is true if your injury was accidentally caused by another worker as their employer is liable for an employee’s mistake.

Injuries are often caused by:

  • Heavy lifting
  • Slipping/tripping
  • Faulty machinery,
  • Poor work equipment,
  • Chemical burns
  • Falling from a height.
  • Lack of Training

Perhaps the equipment was fine but you had not been trained how to use it. It doesn’t matter where your accident happened – in an office, public place, a factory, on a construction site, or even the works car park, Treanors can help.

You may be entitled to compensation for your injuries and all financial losses including:

  • Wage loss
  • Travel expenses
  • Physiotherapy fees
  • Medical costs

We can also advise retired or serving members of HM Armed Forces; please see information below or get in touch.
