Work accident claims have received a lot of negative press over the last few years, but if you’ve had an accident at work and it wasn’t your fault, you have the right to pursue a compensation claim.
Work accident claims
Over the course of the past decade, the number of people filing work accident claims has increased significantly and this is largely due to the fact that the claims process has become simpler and people are more knowledgeable about personal injury compensation and work accident compensation than ever before.
Unfortunately, bad, accident claims have tainted the perception of many when it comes to making a claim. A large number of people who have suffered an accident at work fail to report as a result of their impression of the claims industry and the process of making a claim.
What is a bad claim?
The term ‘bad claim’ is associated with claims that are not submitted in good faith and those that centre on inaccurate or exaggerated information. The claim may focus on facts, which are actually not fact and details, which may have been embellished or even fabricated, with the sole aim of making money.
A bad claim undermines the work of reliable, trustworthy compensation firms, such as Accident Advice Helpline, which has been helping people to claim compensation for road traffic accidents, industrial incidents and work-related illness for more than a decade.

How do I know if I can claim compensation?
If you’ve had an accident at work or you have developed an illness as a result of your working conditions or an incident at work in the last three years and you can prove that you are not to blame, you may be eligible for compensation.
