personal injury solicitor oldhamYour employer has a duty to make sure that you are safe at work whilst you carry out your duties. There are various laws and regulations which require your employer to keep you safe and prevent accidents at work. If you are injured due to a breach of one of those laws or regulations by your employer, then you are entitled to make a claim.

Through the process of a claim we can establish exactly what went wrong and how – this is directly in the interest of any employer.

By seeking the appropriate cost for damages, including loss of earnings, the employer can then fully establish the seriousness of potential hazards in the work place and can then make a better informed decision about the correct health and safety procedures to implement.

The Claimant sustained an injury at work and instructed a local firm of Solicitors.

Regrettably those Solicitors failed to prosecute the claim promptly and after various concessions the Court ultimately struck out the case.

The Claimant then consulted Wrigley Claydon who assessed the chances of success of her original injury claim and then brought a claim against the previous Solicitors for professional negligence in failing to prosecute the claim properly against her former employers.

We succeeded on behalf of our Client and recovered compensation against her former Solicitors to a value that she should have recovered from her former employers if her case had been dealt with properly.

Our Client’s employer’s took shortcuts in order to save money which compromised the health and safety of our Client’s working environment resulting in multiple fractures. We successfully recovered £155,000 for our Client.

Whist at work and during the course of her employment, our Client was using a piece of equipment which was defective. Our Client sustained a fracture of the wrist and we recovered £8,500 in compensation.

“Thank you to Vijay and his team, throughout the whole journey you have been so supportive and helpful, I cannot thank you enough”

Mrs Martin

“I would like to say a very big thank you to Vijay. The service you provided was excellent and at all times I always felt confident that you would get the result we wanted. Your approach to myself and the claim was done with kindness and understanding. I never once felt like just a file number, and your friendliness made the whole process so much easier. I would also like to thank you for the outcome of the claim, because without all your hard work it would not have been possible. I would not hesitate to recommend you to anyone that finds themselves in the unfortunate position where they need to make a claim.”

Paul Gafner

“I had a claim for compensation. The case was lengthy (five years) and complicated. The case was handled throughout by Vijay whom I found to be efficient, courteous, co-operative and very supportive. His favourite saying was ‘hide behind me, I will look after you’ and he did. I feel Vijay did an excellent job and I would recommend Wrigley Claydon’s services to anyone.”

The case was quite complex and there were many twists along the way but I always felt that Vijay was in full control. This was proved in the successful outcome which was well beyond our expectations. His communication was first class, always clear, friendly and left me with no doubts about where we were. I felt that I was kept fully informed at all stages of the claim. I would have no hesitation in using your Company again or recommending Vijay to others in need of help.”
