    "If you've been injured through no fault of your own you could be entitled to compensation. If you're unsure if you could claim, I recommend you call Accident Advice Helpline."

    Esther Rantzen

    Work accident compensation – the process explained


    If a person is injured when employed they sometimes don’t follow up the process for claiming work accident compensation because they think it will be too complicated, but this is not in fact the case. Call Accident Advice Helpline as soon as you realise that your injury is not just a case of a minor sprain or bruise that will heal in a couple of days with no knock-on effect to your health and get the ball rolling. The effects of some injuries do not come to light until later but that is fine – you have three years to claim.

    Work accident compensation 30-second test

    On the website, there is a quick compensation calculator which you can use to see if your injury is eligible for compensation. This is not the final stage, but some situations are very clear cut and you will know straight away whether your work accident compensation claim is likely to be successful. We have a 24-hour helpline as well, so please feel free to contact us if you are in any doubt – in any event, a call would be your next step.

    Give us a call

    Our helpline is manned by experts in normal hours but you can leave a message day or night and we will get back to you. AAH are a law firm specialising in personal injury compensation claims – we have been in business since 2000 – and all of our lawyers work on a strictly no win, no fee* basis. You won’t be billed for calls or letters – any expenses and fees will be taken from any work accident compensation that you receive so you need have no fears about being asked for any money ‘up front’.

    Leave it all to us

    Once we have all of the facts, we will approach your employers for details of their insurance company and the negotiation for your work accident compensation will be discussed with them. Except in very unusual circumstances you will not be expected to appear in court, although we will need medical records, witness statements and similar documentation. Many people worry about setting about getting personal injury compensation but they shouldn’t – if you have been injured at work through no fault of your own and are unable to work or earn enough to pay the bills it is only right that you should not suffer as a result.
