Being injured in an accident at work is no laughing matter. No matter how careful you are, a negligent colleague or employer could cause an accident that could leave you injured, and if this happens you could be entitled to compensation. It’s not just those working in dangerous jobs that are at risk; you could be injured working in a shop, office or anywhere really. Making a claim for compensation means you’ll need the services of a reputable personal injury lawyer and that’s where we can help.
Accident Advice Helpline has been helping employees claim compensation since 2000, and we have even been endorsed by our patron, TV personality Dame Esther Rantzen. Work injury payouts can range from substantial settlements for life-changing injuries to small sums for minor injuries sustained in a slip, trip or fall.
Is it complicated to claim work injury payouts?
You’d be surprised how easy it is to claim work injury payouts after an accident at work. It can take some time to process your claim but the whole process is designed to be as simple and stress-free as possible. You can claim for any type of injury provided your accident was somebody else’s fault, so even if you have just sprained your ankle slipping on a wet floor whilst working in a shop, you could still be entitled to receive compensation.
Taking time off work means your wages are likely to be affected, but you shouldn’t have to go back to work before you have fully recovered from your injuries. When you make a personal injury claim you could be compensated for your loss of earnings, which can take a weight off your mind.
Should you make a claim?
If the idea of taking your employer to court doesn’t seem appealing, you’re not alone. But the good news is that most work injury claims never end up in court. Accident Advice Helpline can process most claims in full over the phone, so there is no need to lose sleep over a court case, and it’s usually a pretty simple process. Our lawyers work on a 100% no-win, no-fee* basis, which means you don’t even need to worry about how you’ll afford to pay those expensive upfront legal fees charged by some other personal injury solicitors.
Get in touch with us today by calling our freephone helpline on 0800 689 0500 (or 0333 500 0993 from a mobile) to find out more about making a claim.
