    Can I claim for an accident as a tiler?


    Accident Advice Helpline is here to help you if you need an answer to the question, ‘Can I claim for an accident as a tiler?’ Call our free, 24-hour helpline now to find out the answer to this and any other questions you may have about making a personal injury claim.

    Eligible to claim

    The law says that if you have been injured in an accident that was caused by the negligence of others and it causes you to suffer financially, you are entitled to compensation. Claims must be started within three years of your accident.

    If your accident fits these criteria, we have an excellent chance of helping you make a successful personal injury claim.

    Proving negligence

    As soon as you feel able after the accident, it is a good idea to record as much detail as you can about the accident. Your lawyer may also contact witnesses to get their accounts of what happened. If there is evidence of negligence on the part of a third party, this will increase the likelihood of a successful claim.

    When you are working as a tiler, your employer has a responsibility to make sure that your work conditions are as safe as possible. Any tools should be regularly checked to make sure that they are in good working order, there should be restrictions on how much weight you can carry to avoid back injuries and you and your colleagues should be provided with any protective equipment you need such as gloves, overalls and goggles.

    If possible, take a photograph on your mobile phone of the hazard that caused your injury. This sort of evidence is becoming increasingly used in personal injury cases and will boost your chance of success.

    Financial problems

    We will also need to prove the impact the accident as a tiler had on your financial situation. After the accident, it is important to consult a doctor. Medical records of your injuries will prove how serious they were and how they affected your life.

    Keep records and receipts of all expenses caused by the accident. These may include prescription charges, transport to medical appointments as well as time when you are unable to work. If you are not sure if an expense is relevant, keep the receipt and ask your lawyer. These expenses will form part of your compensation package.

    A difficult time

    At Accident Advice Helpline, we understand how difficult life can be after an accident. We aim to make the claims process as easy as possible for you. Our expert lawyers often hold consultations over the phone or by email so their clients do not have to travel and they can often settle claims without going to court.

    We also understand that your accident has already caused you financial worries and we do not wish to add to them. Our lawyers work exclusively on a no win, no fee* basis, so whatever your financial circumstances, you can feel comfortable making a claim. Call now on 0800 689 0500.
