Ask a Law Question, Get an Answer ASAP!
Welcome to JA.
I am sorry to hear about your situation.
Please note that this is not a chat service therefore you may experience delays but rest assured that I will respond within 24 hours.
The law states that employers must ensure the employees work in a safe environment. Therefore given the accident there is an argument that the environment was not safe, which gives rise to a claim.
However a personal injury claim should be made within 3 years from the date of the accident. That said this 3 years can be extended by the court's discretion.
Therefore although your chances of bringing a claim after 8 or 9 years are slim its worth contacting a no win no fee personal injury solicitor to review your case with a view of bringing a claim against the employer.

I hope I have clarified the position.
Thanks and stay safe.
