If you suffer an accident at work and pursue work accident compensation claims, you will, of course, want to win that case. Claim success is very important to both victims and the representing law firms, although some firms have more interest than others.
Some law firms will charge money for advice and take a fee regardless of the outcome, so it matters less to those lawyers if the victim wins or loses. Accident Advice Helpline has a no-win, no-fee policy, so if you don’t win, the company doesn’t get paid.
What counts as a work injury?
If you’ve been injured at work but aren’t sure if you qualify to make a claim, essentially all you need to know is that provided it wasn’t your fault, almost everything is covered, including:
- Repetitive strain injury (RSI)
- Slips, trips
- Broken/fractured bones
- Eye damage/blindness
- Loss of hearing
As you can see, any type of injury is covered, even ones that may be considered occupational hazards – such as a typist suffering RSI or a window cleaner falling off a ladder. The workplace should be a safe environment, and provisions put in place to ensure workers do not suffer work accidents.
In the instance when an accident at work does happen, though, you may choose to file claims for compensation. If you do you will want to win the case, not lose, and the main pointer to success is picking the right representation. With 13 years in the business, Accident Advice Helpline is one law firm you won’t want to pass by.
