If you are a private healthcare worker or employee of the NHS and you have been injured at work, get the compensation you deserve. Instruct Forbes Solicitors today to handle your accident at work compensation claim.

Here at Forbes we specialise in obtaining compensation for healthcare workers who have been injured at work or as a result of their job.

We understand that NHS staff and healthcare workers may feel that they have no chance of legal help or compensation due to the nature of their job, but your employer still has a duty of care to ensure their staff are protected against potential dangers on the job.

If you are a private healthcare worker or an employee of the NHS and you are injured as a result of your job, you are entitled to claim compensation for your injuries. You may have been assaulted by a patient due to staff shortages, or may have been exposed to a known aggressive patient resulting in injury to yourself, you may have been injured whilst restraining a patient or suffered a needlestick injury whilst working. In any case Forbes can help you claim compensation.

Types of Health Worker Compensation Claim

Some of the key types of issues and compensation claims our solicitors help healthcare workers with involve:

  • Back Injuries
  • Strain Injuries due to lifting and pushing
  • Needlestick Injuries
  • Pathogen Exposure
  • Dangerous Chemical Exposures
  • Latex Allergies
  • Stress Claims
  • Slips, Trips and Falls
  • Scalpel Injuries
  • Assault Claims

Many injuries suffered by healthcare and NHS staff go unreported as they feel they have no grounds for a claim, in addition, many law firms refuse to handle accident at work claims regarding healthcare workers, but Forbes Solicitors specialise in this sector, taking cases that others may deem unprofitable or risky.

You are entitled to claim compensation for your injuries, so instruct Forbes today and get the compensation you deserve.

Our commitment to client care and focus on quality of service has led Forbes to become an industry leader in the personal injury and medical negligence sector.
