No matter the cause of the accident, it is in your best interest to seek advice from Accident Advice Helpline. We have been giving advice to people who have suffered personal injury since 2000. Just call us on our free, 24-hour helpline where a highly trained advisor is ready to take your call.
Why do people seek injury advice?
People who have suffered injury go to their doctors for treatment and medical advice. As a legal firm, we are on hand to give you legal advice. At Accident Advice Helpline, we can advise you of the legal options available, including launching a claim for compensation.
If you were not responsible for your electroplating accident, you may have grounds for a claim and we are able to advise you of the process for seeking compensation.
Should we find that you could make a claim, our expert solicitors will be able to assist you if you so wish. They work on a no win, no fee* basis that means you will not have to pay anything upfront.
What advice can you give following an accident?
The most immediate electroplating injury advice following your accident is to see your doctor as soon after the incident as possible, even if your injuries appear to be minor. This advice is very important not only because it ensures you get immediate treatment, but your doctor’s report will also outline the extent of your injuries and is vital if a claim is to be made.
Our advice is to get the names and contact details of anyone who witnessed the accident. This is important because in order to make a claim, it has to be shown that you were responsible for the incident. We will need to be able to determine who was liable, such as your employer if they failed to meet Health and Safety requirements. All of this will be determined through your own statements and statements from those who saw the accident.
The accident could have cost you financially through the loss of wages while you were out of work recovering. You may well have had to spend money on such things as prescriptions, travel to and from treatment sessions and medical care. All of this will have put a further strain on your resources, so our advice here at Accident Advice Helpline is to keep a record of any wages lost while off work and receipts for any expenditure relating to your treatment.
By seeking electroplating injury advice, you are taking important steps to look after your own interests and those of your family, so contact Accident Advice Helpline for further assistance.
