    Painting and decorating injury claim


    If you were working as a painter and decorator and were involved in an accident caused by someone else, you may be able to make a painting and decorating injury claim. This is where the expert personal injury lawyers employed by Accident Advice Helpline can help. They all work on a no-win, no-fee basis, so call our free, 24-hour helpline on 0800 180 4123 to find out more.

    Establishing culpability

    Accident Advice Helpline offers expert personal injury advice and legal representation for innocent victims of personal injuries. If someone else caused your painting and decorating injury, and it happened in the last three years, we could help you gain significant compensation.

    To start with, we offer a quick view of the potential of your personal injury claim’s success. You will need to indicate how someone else was to blame for your accident. You may have been injured because the site you were working on was fundamentally unsafe.

    Perhaps the contractor you were working for knew about faulty wiring you were exposed to, or other dangerous elements in your workplace. You may have handled faulty equipment or been asked to work with colleagues who were overworked or unfit to perform due to sickness. In each instance, the person responsible may have put you in a dangerous situation.

    To find out how much you could win through a successful compensation claim, you can use our 30-second online claim calculator. This self-service tool on our website asks a few short questions and can show in less than a minute if you have a potential claim and what it could be worth.

You can also use our callback service by texting ‘claim365’ and one of our associates will call you to go through your case with you.

    If we think you have a valid claim for compensation, you will be matched with one of our expert personal injury lawyers. Your lawyer will review all the documentation relating to your accident and advise you about what else could strengthen it.

    The basis for a solid accident claim can include such things as witness statements, your medical records, receipts for expenses that are related to your accident and photographic or video evidence. All of our lawyers work on a no-win, no-fee basis, so you will not have to pay any upfront charges if you wish to pursue a claim.

    The benefits of claiming accident compensation

    When you suffer an injury, you may suddenly incur financial expenses you had not budgeted for. You may also have had to stop working – affecting your financial independence. A successful painting and decorating injury claim could help you meet your new financial obligations – giving you some peace of mind at a difficult time.
