Accidents at Work

You might not know it, but your employer is responsible for your safety at work.

Employers must provide a safe place of work, a safe system of work, proper equipment, proper training, proper clothing and anything else that is reasonably practicable.

The obligations on employers are so strict that virtually any accident at work can be attributed to some breach of this statutory duty.

The law makes it extremely difficult for an employer to escape liability for an accident to their employee, whatever the circumstances. So, even if you feel that you might be partly to blame for the accident, you should still get in touch with us to see if you have a claim.

It is well worth remembering that employers pay insurance to ensure there is a financial cushion there for anyone who needs to make a claim.


We have substantial experience in dealing with injuries suffered in a wide variety of work-related accidents. The law in this area is complicated and specialist knowledge, skill and experience is vital.

At Atha and Co., you are not just a name on a file. Choose the one you know and you will be looked after as an individual and given the very best in legal support.

Whether you live in Middlesbrough where our office is based, or in the wider Tees Vally areas such as Redcar, Hartlepool or Darlington, we'd love to help you maximise your accident at work compensation claim.

Our qualified solicitors will be with you from start to finish.
