If you need aeronautical engineering accident advice, Accident Advice Helpline can help. We work with people who have suffered a wide variety of accident types and we have some very good industrial accident solicitors in-house. We also offer telephone advice for free, with no obligation to claim. Just give us a call and we can let you know whether or not you have a valid claim. Depending on the nature of your injuries, we may also be able to tell you roughly how much compensation you could get.
What makes a valid claim?
The most important regulation governing compensation claims is the one that says you have to make a claim within a three-year limit. There are a few exceptions to this, so give us a call if you think your situation might be different, but in most cases it’s best to get advice as early as possible. For simple injuries that are not likely to worsen with time, it’s also best to make a claim early. This makes it easier to collect evidence.
You won’t be able to claim unless there is a professional medical report detailing your injuries. This means that you should see a doctor as soon as possible after the accident happens, even if you think you will get better without medical help.
What counts as an aeronautical engineering accident?
An aeronautical engineering accident is any accident you suffer in the course of your work as an aeronautical engineer, whether you’re doing hands-on work with machinery or walking along a corridor to your office. Within your working environment, your employer is responsible for your safety. This does not mean you can claim for accidents caused purely by your own carelessness, but you can claim if, for instance, you trip over something that should not have been left on the floor or you skid on a patch of oil that you have not been warned about.
If you visit other companies’ premises as part of your job, they are responsible for your safety whilst you are there. If you are doing dangerous work, such as investigating a crash site, you must be given the right equipment and protective gear, and your employer must be confident that you have adequate safety training.
How can I claim?
If we at Accident Advice Helpline think your claim is valid, we’ll be happy to take it on. We can give you expert representation and we’ll do it on a no win, no fee* basis, so you won’t need money to start your claim. Your solicitor will take care of most of the paperwork so you won’t need to worry about the claim taking up lots of your time. What’s more, you’ll be able to deal with your solicitor over the phone so you won’t need to keep travelling around. In some cases we are able to secure good settlements for our clients without them even having to go to court. Making a compensation claim is easy, so just call us on 0800 689 0500 and make a start today.
