If you’ve been injured in accidents at work, you may have taken the decision to claim work injury compensation. If you’ve filed a claim, you may be patiently waiting to hear whether or not your claim has been successful. There are many factors which may be taken into consideration in your claim, when deciding whether it is approved or not. Is it as simple as receiving a yes or no? Is there ever any middle ground?
In your claim, is it a yes or no? Or is there an alternative outcome?
If you’ve submitted a claim for work accident compensation, you are likely to receive an answer within 6-12 months if the claim is simple and the employer accepts liability. If your employer doesn’t accept liability and they challenge the claim, the process can take a lot longer.
Your legal team will work to increase your chances of obtaining a positive result, but not all compensation claims are approved. In your claim, it’s possible to receive approval or rejection. If your claim is unsuccessful, you could try and appeal or process another claim, but it is likely that you would be wasting your time.
How does the claims process work?
The claims process is designed to compensate people who have been injured through no fault of their own. In the case of work accidents, if you’ve been injured at work as a result of your employer failing to comply with health and safety measures, you should be able to make a claim. If you decide to pursue legal action, you have two options. You can navigate the process on your own, or you can seek legal help from a firm like Accident Advice Helpline.
