    Injury claim jargon buster: Disclosure

    If legal jargon is getting you down and making the process of claiming compensation for an accident at work seems impossible, Accident Advice Helpline can help. We are a well-established law firm, with a specialist legal team, who strive to make the claims process as transparent and stress-free as possible for victims of personal injury.

    What does disclosure mean? We will bust the jargon and do all the hard work for you, so you can recuperate at home, safe in the knowledge that your claim is in expert hands.

    Busting through the legal jargon

    In any legal case, there will be terminology related to the parties involved and the matter at the centre of discussion. Many of the terms that are used in law are not used in everyday life and consequently they are unfamiliar to people who do not have experience of the law or legal qualifications; there are also examples where legal terms have a completely different meaning in various scenarios and contexts.

    If you’re not a trained lawyer, jumbling through jargon can be a nightmare and this is where the expert personal injury lawyers at Accident Advice Helpline come in handy.


    Disclosure is a legal term, which means the revealing or unveiling of information, which was previously unknown or hidden.

    Disclosure is described by the Crown Prosecution Service as ‘one of the most important issues in the criminal justice system’.  The general rule in the UK is that full disclosure should be made to ensure a fair trial. This means that the prosecution discloses all the material and relevant information it has, which could weaken its case or strengthen the argument of the defence.

    Work accident compensation claims

    If you’ve experienced a work accident or you have a work-related illness, the incident happened within the last three years, and you can prove that you were not at fault, you may be able to claim work accident compensation.

    Collate as much information as you can, ask eyewitnesses or colleagues if they are happy to provide a statement, and seek medical advice. The evidence you provide will help to strengthen your work illness claim.

    If you’re not sure whether you have a viable work injury claim or you would like to find out more about claiming work injury compensation, visit our website to take the 30-second eligibility test or call the 24-hour helpline for expert advice.

    If you have a valid claim, your case will be handled by our legal team, which has over 15 years’ experience in handling work illness compensation claims. The process is designed to be as simple as possible for clients and most never have to go to court.
