Making a lifeguard accident claim just got easier with the help of Accident Advice Helpline. As a law firm with more than a decade of experience in this particular field, we have helped thousands of people get the compensation that they deserve after workplace accidents, and it is no different for lifeguards.
Working as a lifeguard can be dangerous work. Whether at a swimming pool or at the beach, a lifeguard takes his own life into his hands every time he needs to help somebody, and accidents can easily occur. Even a small injury can leave a lifeguard unable to work for a while and it is not always the case that sick pay is payable until he or she is fit enough to go back to work.
Why do I need compensation?
If sick pay is minimal or non-existent, an injured person is going to find it difficult to make ends meet. If the accident that led to this situation is the fault of another person, compensation may be payable and this can go a long way to filling the gap. When you call Accident Advice Helpline, our team of experts will explain to you how the process works. Compensation is not simply a financial payout. It is reassurance that somebody else has taken responsibility for the situation that you are in, and it can often mean that things change so nobody else will be put in that situation.
The claims process
The first step to making a claim is to talk to one of the experienced claims lawyers at Accident Advice Helpline. With a 24-hour free phone line on 0800 689 0500 you can pick up the phone and call us at any time of the day or night to discuss your situation and get the right advice. By taking the details of what happened to you, we will be able to determine if your claim is going to be valid or not. We will not encourage you to pursue a claim if we do not believe that you can win.
We will not ask you to pay anything when you start your lifeguard accident claim as we work on a no win, no fee basis. This means that even if you have no funds to start legal action we can do it for you, and any fees payable will only occur after a successful claim.
Accident Advice Helpline will deal with everything as soon as we have all the information that we need. There will be no need for you to contact the third party at all. Our team will handle everything that needs to be done, although you may need to provide us with more information as the claim progresses. Talking to our team of expert claims solicitors can make a real difference to your life at what is a very difficult time, so you have nothing to lose by picking up the phone.
