Facial Injury Claims

The kinds of work accidents in which Work Claims Bureau have helped clients pursue claims of compensation for personal injury and associated losses include:

  • Exposure to heat, sparks or corrosive substances
  • Slips, trips and falls from height
  • Slips, trips and falls at the same level
  • Colliding with an obstruction
  • Injuries caused by falling objects
  • Injuries caused by equipment / machinery
  • Assaults in the course of duties

The range of injuries caused can range from a broken nose to complex fractures in the bones of the face and disfiguring scarring.

Your employer has a responsibility under UK law to take appropriate steps in ensuring that they do not expose employees to the risk of accidents which may lead to a facial injury.  If you have suffered a work accident that was not your fault, then you could be entitled to make a personal injury claim to compensate you for your injuries and other losses arising from it.

Work Claims Bureau have a dedicated team of specialist facial injury claims solicitors with years of experience in helping employees who have suffered injuries at work.  A personal injury claim is not just about trying to get a sum of money for our clients. It’s also important to make sure that you have access to the support you need after your accident, whether that’s putting you in touch with treatment and care providers, or help in dealing with the social and domestic impact of your injuries.  Get in touch online for a free consultation or call 0808 256 5184.
