The GSR Promise

It can be difficult to choose which Solicitors to instruct as there are so many. We act for clients all over England and Wales, as do many other Solicitors. So why should you choose GSR Solicitors?

At our law firm, we are committed to providing the best possible legal services for our clients. Whether you have sustained a minor injury from a slip and fall or have experienced a life-changing accident resulting in a catastrophic injury, we are here to help you. Our goal is to ensure that you receive the compensation and support you deserve to move forward with your life.

Some clients prefer speaking on the phone instead of emails and written communication. At GSR Solicitors, we offer that option. Other clients have busy schedules and may prefer to read correspondence at a time that suits them. We also offer that flexibility at GSR Solicitors.

We prioritise keeping you informed at all times. As our client, you should never feel left out of the loop.

Our accident at work clients

Accidents at work can happen in a range of different settings. What’s the stereotypical personal injury TV advert which shows someone working at a construction site or falling from a ladder, there can be a range of different injuries and accidents.

There can be circumstances where you have suffered injury at work, but it is not your employer who is at fault. What happens if it’s a different company or a fellow colleague who has caused the accident?

We represent clients in all types of workplace accidents. We understand that it is crucial to not only obtain the appropriate compensation but also to maintain a positive relationship with your employer. After all, most accidents are not intentional and can happen to anyone. In fact, filing a claim could help prevent similar accidents from happening in the future.

Speak to a solicitor to find out how much you could be owed

How does it work?

Step one – Take advantage of our no-commitment consultation.

With our no win, no fee policy, you will never have to pay anything out of your own pocket. We offer a no-commitment consultation. You tell us what happened, we listen and we find out if your claim has the merits to make you eligible for our no win, no fee funding arrangement.

Step two – The claim is submitted

The sending of an initial letter or communication to the defendant’s insurer can greatly impact the outcome of a claim, from early admission to reducing potential issues and increasing chances of success. We make sure that it has all the necessary information to encourage settlement.

Liability is admitted – what next?

Admitting liability is a significant step towards receiving compensation. When the defendants accept responsibility for the actions of the employer that violate their duty of care towards you, they acknowledge that they must provide compensation for any losses you can prove to be caused by that breach.

Sometimes, even after an accident, it can be difficult to fully recover from your injuries. You may experience ongoing symptoms that your medical consultants cannot link to the accident, leaving you uncertain about your future health. Additionally, if you are self-employed, you may find it challenging to demonstrate your losses and receive compensation. In such cases, you may need to request financial interim payments to help cover your expenses while you’re unable to work.

We can help you to obtain a medical report, and if necessary, we’ll advise you to get additional reports from other specialists. It’s important to gather evidence to support your claim, and we’ll be there to assist you in proving your losses.

When we all feel prepared, we will send your evidence and initiate negotiations with the Defendant. If we cannot reach a settlement, we can request a judge to make a decision. Based on the time of the admission or the claim’s worth, you may not even have to attend the court.

Liability is not admitted – what next?

The insurance company you are dealing with believes that they are not liable to compensate you under the law. They hold this belief because they think that the evidence or the law is in their favour. Therefore, in addition to presenting evidence to support your claim (such as if the insurance company has already accepted liability), you must also prove that the defendant is responsible for your loss both in terms of law and fact.

We will review the evidence that the Defendant has presented to support their denial, and we will discuss it with you. Together, we will consider how best to overcome the denial, and if necessary, we will prepare legal proceedings and guide your claim through the Courts.

It is preferable to settle a claim outside of court, but we are prepared to go to court to secure your compensation if necessary.

So how much could my claim be worth?

There is a wide range of injuries that can occur as a result of accidents at work. Most of these injuries are usually orthopaedic in nature, such as sprains, soft tissue injuries, and broken bones. However, some injuries are less common, including burns, scarring, and injuries to the senses such as hearing and vision.

There are long-term injuries caused by exposure to asbestos, repetitive movements, and internal organ damage.

Here are a few examples of common injuries and the usual compensation brackets:-

Injury to the wrist, with full or virtual recovery within up to 12 months or so – up to £5,420

Hand injuries with full recovery but some minor scarring, tenderness and reaction to cold weather – up to £5,800

Fractured tibia or fibula, with a full recovery – between £8,640 and £11,050

Lacerations to the face which are minor but permanent – up to £4,319

However, there are some injuries that are more severe and have a much more significant impact, here are a few examples:-

Serious hand injuries, where a person is left with 50% of their usual capacity and has been left with a deformed hand, significant loss of grip and dexterity – between £35,390 to £75,550

Injuries which have resulted in the amputation of one foot – between £102,470 and £133,810

Head injuries where there is a good recovery and a return to some normal social life and work. However, they continue to experience ongoing cognitive issues such as memory loss – between £18,700 and £52,550
