Can I claim?
If your injury took place during the last three years and you were not to blame for the accident, then it is your duty to make a compensation claim. The money you receive could allow you to get your life back on track if you have been struggling to work or have needed therapy since the accident. Lost income and the inability to earn a living can affect your family life and leave you with huge debts. The only way you can compensate for this misfortune is to begin the claims process so you get what you rightfully deserve. The majority of accidents are just accidents, but if your employer was at fault, then it is your right to claim compensation to cover the losses you have suffered.
The amount of compensation you will receive depends on the severity of your injuries and how much blame lies with a third party. If you are wondering just how much this could amount to, we recommend using the online compensation calculator on the Accident Advice Helpline website to get an estimate. This will involve completing a simple test comprised of four questions. You will also find a plethora of information about what your options are. If you want to talk to an advisor, to receive tailored valet injury advice, then call us at 0800 180 4123. Our friendly advisors will answer all of your questions and offer to match you with one of our experienced lawyers who can answer your questions and help determine whether you have a case to claim for compensation.
If you are injured at work then the accident needs to be noted in an accident book, which is usually updated by your employer. If there is not an accident book available, then it is recommended that you write down all the details of the accident, including witnesses present, before sending it to your employer. You should also keep a copy. This is important, as it will form part of the evidence our expert lawyers use to build a strong case to maximise compensation.
If you are a valet then trips or falls onto hard surfaces can be a common occurrence if your employer does not respond to health and safety red flags in a timely manner. For example, you may have broken a bone after slipping on a wet floor or fallen down a flight of stairs. If your employer was negligent with your safety, then you should make a claim if you were subsequently injured.
