Being injured in an industrial accident can be particularly traumatic. Alongside the trauma caused by the accident itself, you may have to deal with worries about your employment situation. In this case, the last thing you need is to have to deal with the hassle of phoning around solicitors’ offices trying to find the right legal help. You should be able to concentrate on your recovery while someone else solves those problems for you, which is where we can help by getting you in touch with an industrial accident solicitor.
Because we deal with people in your situation on a daily basis, we know how difficult it can be. That’s why we have tried to make things as simple as possible. Our claims calculator can help you to work out if your claim is likely to be valid. You can then call us to discuss your situation. If you decide to proceed, we’ll put you in touch with the best solicitor for your case.
Industrial accidents can be complicated and often involve areas of law in which the average solicitor does not have much expertise. Because we’re such a big organisation, we will be able to find somebody with both the qualifications and the experience to pursue your case successfully. It’s in our interests to get it right, because if you don’t win, we don’t get paid!
We realise that most people prefer to deal with somebody local and, therefore, we’ll do our best to find you an industrial accident solicitor in London. If this is not possible, we won’t waste your time but will offer you the option of dealing with an expert from outside London. This is more likely to lead to a successful outcome in your case than dealing with someone nearby who doesn’t fully understand the legal issues involved.
We can usually find suitable solicitors for our clients very quickly, and we’ll never turn you away because we’re busy. Whether or not to pursue will be up to you, but we’ll offer you the best possible help.
Easing the worry
Once you have an expert solicitor on your case, you’ll no longer need to worry. Your solicitor will take care of all the complicated paperwork and will generally be able to communicate with you by phone. Many of the people who come to us for help don’t even have to go to court in order to win their cases. If you need an independent medical assessment, your solicitor will sort out the details and it will be set up to cause you as little inconvenience as possible.
One bit of good news we can give you straight away is that claiming after an industrial accident won’t necessarily cause problems for you at work. It will usually be your employer’s insurer, rather than your employer directly, who has to pay for any compensation. Your colleagues may well be grateful if your claim results in the workplace being made safer for everyone. If you do have problems, your solicitor will be able to help and you will be able to get on with your life.
