There’s often an assumption that it takes an age to process a personal injury claim following an accident at work or a public place injury, but with Accident Advice Helpline, our expert team works as quickly and efficiently as possible to secure the payout you deserve with minimal stress. If you’ve been injured at work and you were not to blame, why not call the 24-hour helpline and see if you have a valid claim?
How long will my claim take?
It’s impossible to provide an exact answer to this question, as every case is different and the experienced personal injury lawyers at Accident Advice Helpline handle each claim on an individual basis. There are several factors, which are taken into account when giving a projected time span for a no win no fee* compensation claim, but the main issues include:
- who is liable for the accident or injury
- what kind of evidence is available to support your case
- whether the claim is disputed
Accident Advice Helpline always strives to settle claims swiftly and most clients don’t have to go to court.
Generally speaking, if there are no complications, such as disputed liability, ongoing injuries or an uncertain prognosis or a lack of medical evidence, the claims process should be quick and hassle-free; however, there are factors which can prolong the case. Examples of scenarios, which may delay a claim include:
- the defendant disputes culpability
- the nature of the injury; if the injury is complex or severe, the claims process will often take longer because ongoing assessment is often required to determine the value of the claim
- a lack of evidence, which links the injuries to a work accident
- the defendant is uncooperative
- the case goes to court
How can I make a claim?
If you’ve been injured at work and you believe that your employer displayed negligence, you may be thinking about claiming work accident compensation. If the incident occurred within the last 3 years and you have evidence, such as witness statements and medical reports, to support your work injury claim, call Accident Advice Helpline on 0800 689 0500 or visit the website and take the 30-second eligibility test, which will tell you if you have a case for compensation and how much your personal injury claim could be worth.
