You will want to find the best apprenticeship injury advice you can if you have recently suffered an accident as an apprentice. If your apprenticeship accident happened in the last three years and was caused by someone else, Accident Advice Helpline could help you raise a claim for financial compensation. We were established in 2000 and have helped thousands of people over the years to claim compensation for injuries they did not cause themselves. We employ no win no fee personal injury solicitors who can represent you through the legal process, always giving you expert advice about your options. Our long-standing success in helping people makes us an ideal choice if you are looking for apprenticeship injury advice.
Working as an apprentice can be deeply rewarding and stimulating. You are learning the skills and techniques to become an expert in your field. Of course, your work can involve risk and physical or psychological dangers. There are many rules and regulations covering your health and safety in employment. However, this does not mean that accidents cannot happen.
If your apprenticeship accident happened because your supervisor showed you how to do something without properly warning you of its dangers, you could raise a claim for financial compensation. Your injuries may have been caused because your tools or equipment were badly maintained or faulty, or because other people you were working with acted without proper care for their surroundings. Whatever the circumstances, if your accident was the result of someone else’s actions or negligence, you may be able to claim compensation for it.
Where can you find advice?
To find out if you are eligible to claim financial compensation, you can start by using our free online claim calculator. This self-service tool asks you some basic questions about your accident and is then able to indicate if you have a potential claim and what it could be worth.
Alternatively, you can speak with us by calling our free, 24-hour helpline. Call us on 0800 180 4123, or 0333 500 0992 if you are using a mobile phone. One of our call advisors will go through the details of your case with you, to see what your claim could be worth. The more information you are able to provide us, the better. Giving us detailed, factual information allows us to give you personalised apprenticeship injury advice. Your case can be significantly strengthened if you have documented evidence about your accident, such as witness statements, photographic evidence, receipts from medical expenses and your medical records themselves.
Suffering an apprenticeship injury can mean you have to take time off from your training or even miss it altogether. This in turn could have a serious impact on your ability to earn a living; in a possible worst-case scenario, your entire plans for the future may have to change due to your accident. The financial compensation you may be entitled to could give you financial peace of mind during this difficult time.
