If you think that making a personal assistant accident claim is the way forward for you, then there is a company that you should consider calling. Accident Advice Helpline is a law firm that has been working since 2000 on personal injury cases – ensuring that people who have been in a similar situation to you are able to get the justice that they deserve when they have been injured through no fault of their own.
When you are working as a personal assistant, it is very important that you are aware of the hazards in the workplace. This can be anything from loose wires that you can trip over to working with faulty equipment. An accident can easily happen – but it shouldn’t! Health and safety in the workplace has become a very strong issue in any business, and most companies will appoint somebody to deal with health and safety matters. This is the person that should make sure that relevant training such as manual handling guidance is delivered and that checks are carried out to reduce the possibility of injury any other way. However, reality is generally a little different. The health and safety adviser will have other duties as well, and they cannot be everywhere at the same time – so things are overlooked.
What should I do?
Calling Accident Advice Helpline can make a great deal of difference. It can put your mind at ease regarding the type of action that can be taken in your case – and it can also mean that you can get the financial compensation that will get you back on your feet. Paying bills while you are off work is not easy. No money coming in means that there is nothing there to pay the bills with. This will land you in somewhat of a vicious cycle and compensation can help to break this. Call us with the details of your personal assistant accident claim to find out if we can help you, and we will be able to explain to you exactly how the claims process works.
I can’t afford to take legal action
This is a common reaction and the team at Accident Advice Helpline hears it quite a bit. For a while people could not afford to take legal action in personal injury cases. The government put a stop to legal aid for this type of case in the late 1990s, and this left many without the means to get justice. When we were established, we were able to address this by offering no win, no fee services. With no bill to pay upfront, you can afford to take legal action – regardless of the state of your bank balance.
It will only take a few minutes to find out if we can help you, so there is no reason for you to delay making that call. As soon as you are able pick up the phone and tell us everything, you will get the peace of mind that you need. We have a free, 24-hour helpline, so you can call us at a time that suits to get your claim started; just call us on 0800 689 0500 from a landline phone.
