Craigavon Personal Injury Solicitors No Win No Fee
Craigavon, situated in the north of County Armagh is a diverse town that is particularly well known for its lakeland area as well as a range of sports and leisure activities. This mixed with some industrial areas and the residential zones means that there are a diverse range of personal injury cases that our Craigavon personal injury team of solicitors deal with including:
Accidents at Work
Employers are more and more conscious about health and safety than ever before. They are legally obliged to ensure the health, safety and well-being of their employees is looked after and that the workplace is a safe place to work without risk to health or safety. Their duties include:
- Ensuring machinery and equipment is safely maintained and serviced and safe to use
- Protective clothing and equipment is supplied and used where necessary
- Manual handling is reduced as much as possible
- There are adequate safety procedures, policies and equipment
- Precautions are taken against fire
- All workplace hazards are identified and assessed
These just give a flavour of an employer’s duties and in the most part, most Craigavon and other UK employers adhere to these and workplaces are safe to work in and accidents minimised.
However, this is not always the case and sometimes accidents do happen if you are unlucky enough for one to happen to you and it was not your fault then you may be entitled to claim compensation for your injury.
Unfortunately whilst in the course of their work, people can be exposed to a wide range of harmful substances in the workplace which can cause a range of conditions that can range from mild discomfort to debilitating illnesses and even death. Some of the most serious conditions are those that are linked with asbestos such as:
- Lung cancer
- Occupational Asthma
- Pleural Plaques
- Pleural Thickening
- Pleural Effusion
Other industrial diseases and conditions we can assist with include:
- Vibration white finger
If your industrial disease or condition is not on the list above we will almost certainly be able to help you still. Call one of our specialist advisors today on 0800 073 8804.

Slips, Falls and Trips in Craigavon
Compared to more serious injuries such as spinal or brain injuries that some people claim for, a simple trip or fall may seem like a trivial matter to make a claim for. However, sometimes even the smallest of personal injuries can have serious effects on people. As well the pain and discomfort of the injury itself, you may not be able to do things you previously did such as sport or even work activities. This could mean that your capacity to earn has been affected too. Once you begin to look at all of the consequences, it soon becomes clear that most injuries that were not your fault are worth claiming for.
