Health Workers Injury Claims

If you are a healthcare worker and you have suffered an injury that was not your fault, our personal injury solicitors may be able to help you claim compensation.

What is a Healthcare Workers Injury?

A healthcare workers injury refers to any injury sustained by a healthcare worker while performing their job duties. A "healthcare workers injury claim" can be made against the employer if it can be proven that the injury was caused by the employer's negligence or failure to provide a safe working environment.

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.
