Work with Accident Advice Helpline and we guarantee that making your claim for an accident at work in Bideford will be as straightforward as possible. In most cases you won’t even need to attend court, as the majority of cases can be handled over the telephone. We may ask for one additional medical assessment in order to better understand your injury, but that’s usually all that we require of you.
As a rule, compensation claims must be made within three years. However, if your case concerns either a minor or an incident of industrial disease, this time limit may be more flexible. Please note that the length of time that elapses between filing your claim and the receipt of any compensation you are entitled to varies from case to case. As such, guaranteeing a time frame is usually impossible.
Can I claim for an accident at work in Bideford?
There are several types of accident that may qualify for compensation. Common claims include road traffic accidents, trips and falls, medical negligence, criminal injury and food poisoning. If you’re unsure, visit the Accident Advice Helpline website and take our 30-second test, which may give you a firmer idea of your entitlement.
If your claim is successful, your compensation amount will usually be made up of a lump sum payment for your injury, plus reimbursement costs such as:
- Loss of earnings;
- Home help;
- Travel costs; and
- Medical expenses.
We can also provide an estimate of what your claim may be worth. However, these are not guaranteed. Take your first steps toward compensation today — call Accident Advice Helpline on 0800 689 0500, or 0333 500 0992 if calling from a mobile phone.
