We are dedicated to doing our bit to making sure that we only deal with real cases where there is a real accident injury claim that needs professional legal representation.

Free Phone Consultations with Claims Advisors

With our free phone consultation our claims advisors will ask a few simple and quick questions about the circumstances involving your case. This could include questions such as, but not limited to:

  • Were you injured in the accident?
  • Did you receive professional medical treatment?
  • Were the police called?
  • Was an accident and incident report form filled out?
  • Are you insured or your company you work for insured?
  • Did you need to take any time off of work?
  • Have you lost our financially due to the accident?
  • Are you still in need of medical attention?
  • Were there any witnesses to the accident?
  • Have you kept all receipts of expenses you have incurred?
  • Is there any supporting evidence available such a photographic evidence?
  • Did the accident occur in the last three years?

If you can answer yes to many of those questions then there’s every chance that you could be due compensation. If we believe that there is a claim then we will assign you your own local as possible personal injury lawyer to take on your case and represent you.

You Probably Won’t Need to Attend Court Hearings

In most cases, our clients won’t even need to visit court. Most accident injury claims we deal with are quickly settled outside of court with our dialogue taking place with the relevant insurance companies.

Experts in Cases Involving the Work-Place

This is particularly relevant to work accident claims, where most employers (who are legally obliged to do so) will have insurance policies specifically designed to be acted on in the event of an injury claim taking place at work by an employee.

Car Accident Claims After a Crash

In addition to work accident claims, we also heavily specialise in claims involved road accidents, in particular with cars and cyclists.

Most people who have an accident in their car will simply let their insurance company deal with the fall-out… however, many people don’t realise that you could win a lot more compensation by using a specialist accident claims company such as ourselves.

What You Can Expect to Receive

Our solicitors will always go the extra mile to ensure that our clients receive the maximum compensation payments and this will include compensation for:

  • Injuries and pain/suffering
  • Psychological damagers
  • Damages to property
  • Replacement vehicle costs
  • Compensation for private medical care

If you need to make a car accident injury claim then please don’t take the first offer that your insurance company makes you – but instead call our Freephone number to discuss how our lawyers can help you make the most from your claim.

Does the UK Have a Problem with Whiplash Injury Claims?

There is a very interesting article on the UK BBC website which asks whether or not the UK has a problem with whiplash injury and accident claims.


The BBC highlight an increase in people making whiplash compensation claims, and asks whether or not the claims culture is damaging the reputation of the accident claims and personal injury industry.

Personally our editors think that there is a problem, and it’s something that needs to be addressed, should the murky part of the industry be cleaned up.

It goes without saying that there are a huge amount of accident claims that are submitted in the UK which do appear to be fraudulent… and this is not helping the trusted and regulated businesses that do a good job in the UK.

Avoiding Hazards and Work Accident Claims in Heavy Industry

As part of a campaign blitz slated to happen for six weeks to be conducted this fall in Ontario workplaces, inspectors will target mainly the dangers surrounding the machines that are not adequately protected, locked or chocked.

There have been an increase in workplace and industry related work accident claims over the last decade, and we truly do hope to look to decrease these.

Reducing Work Accident Claims

The Ministry of Labour inspectors will visit a range of workplaces in the industrial sector between November 3 and December 16, 2014. They will check whether employers, supervisors and workers comply with the requirements of the Health Act and the Safety and Regulations.

Protection, blocking and bracing machines designate protective devices designed to prevent access to moving machine parts and prevent machines are activated unexpectedly and put them at risk workers during maintenance, repair or hardware installation.

For workers, machines not equipped with appropriate guards and inadequate lockout procedures can cause serious injuries such as limb amputation, or death.

In 2012, the Commission Workplace Safety and Insurance against accidents at work has received the following complaints from workers who sustained injuries with work interruption, or injuries that forced them to miss work :

  • Work accident claims for injuries with work interruption from 1976 workers trapped or crushed by equipment;
  • Personal injury claims LTIs from 305 workers who have been rubbing or abrasion by friction or pressure or shaken by vibrations;
  • Personal injury claims LTIs from 367 workers amputated a limb or other body part.

In 2013, 17 percent or 2,737 of all orders given by the inspectors of the Ministry of Labour under the Regulations for Industrial Establishments were for offenses relating to protective devices and lock machines.

In addition, during the blitz, inspectors will check the internal responsibility system of the workplace, which requires internal roles and policies to emphasize the personal responsibility of employers, supervisors and workers with respect to their health and safety on the workplace.

They will also examine the dangers of chemical exposure and musculoskeletal disorders associated with it.

Workplace Dangers

The dangers on unprotected machines and inadequate action locking and timing may include the exposure of workers to:

  • pinch points and risks of jamming by attraction that are created when two or more mechanical parts rotate in opposite direction and close each other. If a body part (such as hair, a hand or a member) or clothing touching a pinch point, the worker can be driven in the movement of the machine and thus suffer a serious injury or be killed;
  • moving parts if the equipment is not properly seated and locked during maintenance or repair.

Musculoskeletal disorders among workers can occur when they are engaged on repetitive movements and adopt awkward postures when working with the material.

Occupational disease can develop in workers who are exposed through skin contact and inhalation of metalworking fluids and degreasing solvents.

Blitz – Target

Ministry inspectors will visit a range of workplaces in the industrial sector. They will pay special attention to workplaces of the following sub-sectors:

  • manufacture of wood and metal products;
  • manufacturing;
  • chemicals and plastics;
  • automobile;
  • sawmills;
  • home construction materials;
  • Food, beverages and tobacco;
  • pulp and paper;
  • textiles and printing.

The blitz will target the following workplaces:

  • those where there are machines;
  • those where hazardous processes and equipment are used;
  • those for which complaints were received;
  • those who have a history of non-compliance.

Inspectors will take enforcement action of the law, if necessary, in response to any violation of the Act on health and safety at work and the regulations.


Inspectors will focus on the following priorities:

Protection devices: Inspectors will check that employers shall ensure that pinch points and other dangerous places on the hardware are covered with protective devices. Protective devices are generally required in places where there are moving parts, pinch points, as the power transmission interfaces and shear points.

Lock and rigging: Inspectors will check that employers ensure that workers follow lockout procedures to prevent the machine turn on when opened or when the guards are removed. Ideally, equipment should be designed so that repairs and maintenance can be performed without one having to reach dangerous places or remove safety devices.

Locking procedures generally require that the machine is completely stopped and all the power sources are locked. Inspectors will also verify that employers ensure that machinery or equipment is blocked by, for example, wood or metal shims to prevent it from falling or moving when it is open or temporarily high for allowing workers to work in the sector or move it.

Internal Responsibility System: Inspectors will check and evaluate internal responsibility system to ensure that worker health and safety and of joint committees on health and safety are in place, if necessary and they operate as required by the Occupational Health and Safety.

Other hazards: Inspectors will check that employers protect workers against exposure to musculoskeletal disorders and against the dermal exposure and inhalation exposure to metalworking fluids and degreasing solvents.

What You Should Do When an Accident at Work Happens

If you have been hurt in the workplace then the first thing that you need to do is to tell your employer.

When an accident occurs or a disease is caused by your work, notify them as soon as possible so that medical attention can be sought, a record of the accident made, and the due processes followed – by taking this action you can help with any future work accident claims you might decide to make.

You should consult a doctor and present a medical certificate to your employer if you have suffered an injury caused by work (injury or illness) and you cannot work due to this injury, beyond the day of the accident. Keep all your receipts.

Apply for Worker’s Accident Claim Compensation

If you are away for more than 14 days, or if you have medical expenses to be reimbursed, complete the Worker’s Accident Claim form. Make sure to have on hand all the information requested, such as street address, postal code, health insurance and social insurance numbers.

Send us the original documents requested with the well completed form. You can be reimbursed for expenses (travel, pharmacy …) even if you did not have to take time off work.

Take a Medical Examination

You must ensure you have all the necessary medical examinations and follow the treatments recommended by your doctor. During your sick leave, you must consult the physician designated by your employer, if your employer asks you to.

Inform Your Employer

You must notify the CSST of any change to your situation. When you know the date of your return to work, you must immediately inform your employer.
