It is the responsibility of employers to provide a safe work environment at all times, and if they fail to do this, serious accidents can happen and lead to loss of life. When you have lost someone, the last thing you may want to think about is embarking on a claim for accident at work compensation in North Lanarkshire, but at Accident Advice Helpline, we make the process straightforward and affordable.
Our compassionate team of advisers and personal injury lawyers are skilled in handling these sorts of cases, and will fight hard to ensure those who are responsible are held accountable for their actions.
The facts about accident at work compensation in North Lanarkshire
Claiming compensation after losing someone in a fatal accident doesn’t have to be difficult.
You are within your rights to do so if you can prove that the accident was caused by the negligence of another party, and the deceased was in no way to blame. The accident must also have taken place within the designated time period of three years, too.
One of our solicitors will analyse the details around your case to determine if you have a potential claim, and if so, we will fight to ensure you are awarded the fixed lump outlined by the Fatal Accidents Act 1976. As long as the deceased was a spouse, partner or dependent child under the age of 18, you could be entitled to this compensation.
Between funeral costs and an adjustment in household income, you may find yourself struggling financially after losing a loved one. In order to ensure everyone that wants to claim accident at work compensation can do so, we undertake all cases on a no win, no fee* basis.
This means there is nothing to pay initially when starting your claim, helping to alleviate the financial pressure you may be under. We appreciate that losing a loved one in an accident at work can be one of the hardest things to go through, which is why we try to make claiming fatal accident compensation as easy as possible.
At Accident Advice Helpline, we have been working in the personal injury sector for over 16 years, and we know how difficult fatal accident claims can be.
