Industrial accidents often involve heavy or moving machinery and the personal injury which results can have a catastrophic effect on the injured person’s life quality and expectancy. It is unreasonable to expect the average person to take out life insurance to cover against such an outcome and indeed, to buy the kind of cover which would give lifelong care in these circumstances would be very expensive, if not unaffordable. Anyone who suffers from serious injury at work which is not their fault can make a personal injury compensation claim with a good expectation of receiving an award.

Don’t worry about a court appearance
If you have suffered severe personal injury you may not be well enough to attend court and we do understand that this worries a lot of people. In almost all cases, there is no need for a court appearance and in any event, the court will take personal circumstances very much into account. If your injuries in an industrial accident leave you hospitalised or not fit to travel, other arrangements will be made, even if your personal testimony is needed. Most cases are conducted over the phone. The time taken for a compensation decision does vary although in the cases of life-limiting injuries the court is usually understanding and an early date for hearing the case is sought. AAH helps dependants as well as the victim of an accident if the accident was sadly fatal. In this event, you can rely on our very experienced staff to give you sympathetic and timely assistance with your claim.
