The Risks Associated With Industrial Occupations

Industrial work premises are often classified as high-risk environments. The use of heavy machinery and the use or transport of industrial chemicals or substances result in a number of risks for those working in industrial jobs. Employers have a duty of care to ensure that working practices are as safe as possible for industrial workers. If they breach this duty of care and you are injured in an accident then you may be entitled to compensation. While, mistakes and accidents do occur, when you suffer injury due to someone’s negligence you are entitled to recover compensation to put you back in the position you were in before the accident as far as possible.

You have up to 3 years from when the accident or injury occured to make a claim so we advise that you get in touch as soon as possible if you are considering making a claim.

Making a Compensation Claim With Thompson & Co

We will usually deal with your claim on a No-Win-No-Fee basis unless we identify a more suitable method of funding your claim that you wish to use. You will not have to enter into any credit agreements.

If your Claim is Unsuccessful

  •     you will not have to pay our costs
  •     We will usually arrange an insurance policy so that you do not have to pay any disbursements (medical report fees, court fees etc) incurred on your behalf. You will not have to pay for the insurance policy if you are unsuccessful.

You will therefore not have to pay anything if you lose your claim.

If your claim is Successful you will usually be able to recover part or all of our costs and disbursements from your opponent.

You will pay out of your compensation

  •     any shortfall in costs that we are unable to recover from your opponent
  •     and disbursements that we are unable to recover from your opponent
  •     Our success fee
  •     The premium for the insurance

we will however cap the amount you have to pay out of your compensation at a maximum of 25% of the compensation recovered. You will therefore receive a minimum of 75% of any compensation recovered in your claim.

We charge a success fee to reflect the risk we take when we make our fees conditional upon the success of your claim. The success fee we charge allows us to indicate to clients that we will not charge them for our work if they are unsuccessful with their claim.
