    Accident in Northampton?

    Situated in and the county town of Northamptonshire, the East Midlands town of Northampton is located on the Nene river and lies to the north west (108 km/ 67 miles) of London and to the south-east (80 km/ 50 miles) of Birmingham. Encompassing 33 electoral wards, Northampton features a large variety of shopping, dining and entertainment facilities. The town’s main employment sectors include retail, distribution and finance, as well as some manufacturing.

    Accidents at work

    Like elsewhere in the country, Northampton is occasionally the scene of workplace accidents. Such accidents may occur in restaurant kitchens; on building sites or in manufacturing environments. Employees in finance and retail industries are also not immune to the risk of injuries at work. Slips, trips and injuries by electrocution or equipment failure are particularly common in these sectors.

    Injuries at work

    Other work-related injuries may be sustained through unsuitable manual handling procedures. Office employees are also prone to suffering repetitive strain injuries to their arms/ wrists, and prolonged exposure to vibrations in manufacturing jobs may also result in hand/arm vibration syndrome or vibration white finger.

    Work injury compensation

    If you suffered a workplace injury in Northampton during the past three years, you may qualify for industrial injury compensation if the accident causing your injury was down to someone else or was the result of faulty equipment.

    Claiming compensation

    Calling the free phone helpline of Accident Advice Helpline will allow you to discuss your situation and confirm your right to claim with the help of a highly trained, friendly advisor in complete confidentiality.

    Conditional fee agreement

    To prevent adding financial burdens to your situation, the lawyer’s assistance is provided under a conditional fee agreement, meaning you pay nothing until you receive your compensation. This no win no fee** basis works on the principle that a suitable percentage high enough to cover legal, solicitor’s and other fees is deducted from the compensation awarded after the claim process is brought to completion. How long this will take cannot be predicted with certainty.
