Why do some claims take a long time?
Many personal injury and work accident claims can be resolved quickly and efficiently, but occasionally there are factors or issues, which may slow the process down. Examples include discrepancies about the sum of damages and taking time to gather evidence from relevant parties. Sometimes, there may also be disagreements about the nature or severity of injuries and the potential cause, which have to be resolved using medical advice and expertise, before a case can proceed.
What to do if you suffer an accident at work
If you are involved in a work accident or you are injured at work and you are not at fault, it is important to report the incident to your supervisor or manager and seek assistance for your injuries or illness. In order to claim work accident compensation, the incident must have occurred within the last 3 years; in the case of a work-related illness, the illness must have developed within 3 years of an accident or exposure to a hazardous situation or environment.
To make a successful work injury claim, you must be able to prove that your employer displayed negligence, which was ultimately the cause of an accident and subsequent illness or injuries. Good examples of evidence include medical reports, which detail the development or progression of work-related injuries or illness, eye witness statements and photographs.
