Many people think that being a forester is a dream job; yet making a forester accident claim can be quite common. Working as a forester means working in all types of weather, but on the plus side, you are outside among trees and Mother Nature, a whole world away from the drudgery of the office or factory floor. However, what they tend to forget is this job is dangerous and you can sustain nasty injuries. If you have had the misfortune to suffer an accident and sustained injuries during your forestry work, you may be able to make a forester accident claim.
Making a claim can be a complicated process. You will need to show that you were not responsible for causing the accident. Claims regulations also mean that generally the claim must be made within three years of the accident. Therefore, if you want to make a claim you should contact the legal experts at Accident Advice Helpline who will deal with everything for you.
We are a legal firm advising and assisting people with their accident claims since the year 2000. Our expert solicitors are on hand to assist the public with their personal injury claims. By contacting our trained advisors for free advice via our free, 24-hour Helpline, you could be taking those first steps towards a forester accident claim.
Why you should make a claim
If you have been injured in a forester accident, your injuries could be very serious and have a major impact on your future. You may not be able to work again and might need care on a long-term basis. Even if your injuries are not serious, the incident could have left you traumatised. Any time off work could cause potential hardship for you and your family. There may also be other costs such as prescriptions and non-NHS treatments and therapies. Aside from your compensation for your pain and suffering, the additional expenses can also be met from a successful forester accident claim.
What you should do before making a claim
A doctor’s report is essential when making a claim. The report will outline the extent of your injuries. Injuries can worsen and even lead to other physical conditions, so even if you have started your claim, these additional factors can be included. Even if your injuries were only minor, our advice here at Accident Advice Helpline is to see your doctor for an examination.
What we will need to know
If we are to assist you with your forester accident claim, we will need to know what actually happened. This means we will need to know your version events and those of the people who witnessed the accident. This will help us prove you were not responsible for the accident and determine who was at fault. The person or organisation responsible for your misfortune will be the ones that the claim is against.
If we believe you have grounds for a claim, it will be handled on a no win, no fee* basis, which means you will not have to pay anything upfront. Contact us about starting your forester advice claim immediately.
