As a carpenter, you are no doubt aware of the numerous hazards present in your workplace. Carpenters can sustain deep cuts caused by sharp tools, muscle pulls and strains from bending over in one position for a long period and fractures caused by slips, trips or falls in the workshop or on building sites. Other accidents can result from using faulty machinery and tools, lifting heavy objects or being hit by falling items. Additionally, these tradesmen can develop various lung diseases as a result of inhaling wood dust for extended periods of time.
If you have been involved in a carpenter accident, you may have legitimate reasons to make a compensation claim.
Is your claim valid?
Before proceeding with your claim, it is important to ensure that your case passes the eligibility criteria. Your claim is valid if you can prove that the carpenter accident you were involved in was caused by a third party’s negligence. This could be your employer, your fellow colleague or even one of your customers. Furthermore, you need to provide proof showing that you suffered injuries in the accident and you were treated by a recognized medical practitioner.
You will require the services of a personal injury solicitor to help you collect relevant evidence related to your case. The solicitor will also be in a position to give you legal advice and guidance on how to proceed with your carpenter accident compensation claim.
How much is your claim worth?
The payout amount you expect to receive, as compensation in your case, will be based on the severity and extent of your injuries. Your solicitor will also consider the toll these injuries have had on your life and any out of pocket expenses you’ve incurred. You can expect a larger payout if the accident left you with permanent injuries. In determining your claim’s worth, you lawyer will also consider the amount paid out for similar cases in the past.
You can use the innovative 30-second calculator found on Accident Advice Helpline’s website to gauge the estimated payout to expect from your claim.
