If you have suffered an injury whilst at work you may be able to pursue an accident at work compensation claim. However, in order to do this, you need to seek professional advice from a law firm such as Accident Advice Helpline and a qualified solicitor who will be familiar with the process and ensure that you recoup the maximum compensation award.
How to make an accident at work compensation claim
It is certainly not a difficult process to make an accident at work compensation claim, particularly if you consult one of our experienced solicitors. We will ascertain all the facts surrounding your accident gathering as much information as possible and then we will start the process of making your accident at work compensation claim. You will need to complete certain documentation which your solicitor will help you with and submit what is commonly known as work compensation, which is the legal submission of a workplace accident compensation claim resulting from accidents and injuries at work. You will certainly require a solicitor to help you through this claims process as workplace insurers will try to pay as little as possible compensation to claimants.
Any individual who has sustained a workplace accident is entitled to make a claim but whether this claim has any weight and whether the claimant will receive subsequent compensation depends on many different elements. Most importantly, the claimant must be able to prove that the employer failed in their duty to provide a safe working environment. The claimant also needs to consider whether the accident was the result of their error resulting in poor judgement such as being intoxicated whilst at work. With some workplace accidents it may be difficult to prove who exactly was at fault and that’s where a qualified solicitor will be able to offer guidance where required. Compensation amounts can vary considerably with workplace accidents, depending on the severity of the accident, the injuries you have sustained and any loss of earnings that you have encountered or are likely to incur in the future as a direct result of the accident. Determining the amount to award individuals is highly complex so your claim needs to be handled by a professional solicitor and one who is experienced in dealing with an accident at work compensation claim.
