Hundreds of people make compensation claims in good faith following an accident at work or a public place slip, trip or fall, but unfortunately, there are a small number of cases, which are referred to as bad accident claims. Here are some tips for recognising bad accident claims:
Spotting the signs of bad accident claims following an incident at work
If you’ve had an accident at work or you fall ill as a result of your working environment, you have the right to claim compensation, but there are strict criteria and policies in place to ensure that honesty is rewarded and false claims are thrown out. Lawyers are trained to spot the warning signs of bad claims and firms such as Accident Advice Helpline only deal with accurate and well-intentioned work accident claims, which are based on solid facts.
Sometimes bad claims are easy to spot because the information provided by the potential claimant simply does not add up; legal experts have experience in identifying false information and they can often tell straight away when information about an industrial incident or work-related injury seems suspicious and the details seem falsified or embellished.
If the timings, dates and witness statements don’t match, for example, this is often a sign that the case is based on an incident, which was not serious, or even an event that was entirely made up.
How do I know if my claim is ‘good’?
Good accident claims can be justified and clients have information to hand, which supports their statements and affirms that the incident was not their fault and that they sustained injuries or illnesses as a direct result of an accident at work or a public place incident.
On questioning, clients who have a genuine case will be able to answer without hesitation and most people have additional evidence to support the information they have provided, such as a statement from an eye witness and a report from a medical professional who was consulted at the time.
If you have had an accident at work, it wasn’t your fault and you have the relevant information and supporting statements to hand, Accident Advice Helpline could help you to make a work accident claim.
The company was established in 2000 with the aim of helping clients to claim the accident compensation they deserve. The process is simple and quick and the company has established a reputation for reliability, honesty and integrity.
