An accident at work can be an unwanted hassle in your life, especially if your injuries are so bad that you’ve had to take time off work and have been inconvenienced while recovering. Making a claim for compensation after your ordeal can be very off-putting for victims that just want to get back to normal, however at Accident Advice Helpline we can make the claim on your behalf and get you the best settlement for your unfair injuries.
Can I find out if I am eligible on my own?
You can try our online claim calculator which only takes 30 seconds. After inputting a few pieces of information the calculator can determine whether you have a claim and how much you could be eligible to receive. You can also call our team of legal experts to find out more about your right to compensation and about the process of making a claim.
Some victims go straight to their employer to ask about compensation and more often than not the employer will not take them seriously without representation or they will take advantage of the fact that you have no representation and make you a meagre settlement offer.
At Accident Advice Helpline we may be able to get you up to ten times more in compensation from your employer and, as they are insured for accidents in the workplace, you needn’t worry about the cost. If your case is not successful you will not have to pay for any solicitors’ fees because you will be protected by our no-win, no-fee service.
More about the work injury claim process
In order to make a claim we must find that you qualify for compensation (you can do this online, with our calculator, or you can speak to us over the phone). Your accident must have been caused by someone else’s negligence and we can help you to determine who is responsible.
The accident cannot have been your fault and it must have been directly responsible for your injuries. Your accident must have taken place in the last three years and you must have sought advice from a medical professional.
