We have an experienced team of specialist personal injury solicitors that have dealt with many successful claims for self-employed contractors.
It is a common misconception that self-employed contractors do not have the same legal rights as permanent employees when it comes to workplace accidents. However, this is not true, in the majority of cases you can still make a personal injury claim even if you are self-employed. Thorneycroft Solicitors has a dedicated personal injury team that deals with all types of workplace-related injuries and compensation claims including self-employed contractors.
If you’re self-employed, there are several situations in which you can file a claim for an injury sustained at work. For example, if a business hires you to work on their property or at one of their locations for a lengthy period, they must make sure you have a safe working environment and receive sufficient training. If you do not receive this from the business you are working for and you are injured as a result of this, you may be entitled to compensation.
This also applies to any equipment you are given, including scaffolding, electric tools, and personal protective equipment (PPE).
If you are self-employed and have been injured at work, you should get in contact with a personal injury solicitor to discuss the viability of your claim. Our personal injury solicitors are happy to offer you a free, no-obligation assessment and will provide you with the very best legal advice for your case.
Here at Thorneycroft Solicitors, we have personal injury solicitors that specialise in dealing with accident at work claims involving self-employed contractors and, have successfully handled many claims for different circumstances including;
We offer extensive guidance on all elements of workplace accidents involving self-employed contractors, compensation for injuries, information on employment-related concerns, and, when necessary, assistance with benefit applications.
For a successful claim, you will need to demonstrate that your workplace injuries occurred as a result of negligence from the business that you were working for. We will advise you on the steps you need to take as well as help you gather evidence to support your claim.
