Before making a butcher accident claim, you need to gather as much information as you can to maximise your claim’s chances of success. You can get information by contacting Accident Advice Helpline. Our team of friendly advisors and experienced solicitors are always ready to provide an exceptional service to all our clients.
Being a butcher is a demanding occupation and most of these people remain on their feet for extended periods. They work with sharp tools and are vulnerable to all sorts of accidents in the workplace. The most common injuries include cuts caused by knives and other tools, bruises, sprains and fractures caused by slipping on slippery floors or tripping over tools as well as injuries caused by defective machinery.
Eligibility criteria for making a butcher accident claim
If you are the unlucky victim of a butcher accident, you might have a legitimate claim for compensation as long as you meet the following criteria:
- The accident happened as a result of someone else’s negligence or carelessness.
- The accident occurred within the last three years.
- You sustained injuries and received medical treatment.
If your claim satisfies all these conditions, then Accident Advice Helpline can assist you by providing legal representation to help you win your claim.
Why do I need legal representation?
The process of making a butcher accident claim can be tedious and confusing for most people. You will need to work with a solicitor for the following reasons:
- Knowledge and qualifications. A specialist solicitor will have in depth knowledge in dealing with butcher accidents and will know how to argue your case more efficiently. Additionally, your solicitor will know which laws were breached in your case and will offer appropriate legal advice and guidance throughout the claim process. They will also handle all the case’s legal paperwork.
- More resources. Your lawyer will have access to more resources and can gather all the necessary evidence to build a strong case for you. They can obtain copies of your doctor’s medical report, witness statements and other pieces of evidence needed to support your claim.
- Better representation. Hiring a solicitor will give your case a sense of seriousness and the defendants are likely to pay more attention if a solicitor is involved. Your lawyer is also better placed to argue your case and defend you in a court should the claim proceed that far.
- Experience. An experienced solicitor will know how much compensation to demand for your injuries. Furthermore such solicitors have dealt with enough compensation claims in the past and know what is required to win the case for their clients.
