Suffering an accident at work is a traumatic and stressful experience.

They may include:
- Repetitive strain injury
- Construction accidents
- Industrial industry
- Industrial deafness
- Vibration white finger
- Health and safety
- Product liability
- Accident at work
- Asbestos claim
How do I make a no win no fee* claim after an accident at work?
No win, no fee* means that if you do not win your case, you will not have to pay any legal costs. Before making a claim, you will need to assess your eligibility, which can be done using an online tool such as Accident Advice Helpline’s 30 second calculator. This will also return an estimated compensation amount based on a typical claim, which is a good way to gauge how much you may be able to claim before you speak to an advisor.
To progress your no win no fee* claim after an accident at work, you can call and speak to Accident Advice Helpline’s friendly and professional advisors who are trained to sensitively handle your case.
I feel guilty about claiming against my employer
It’s your right as an employee to be protected by your employer at work, by measures including adequate health and safety, sufficient training and well maintained equipment to ensure the risk of accidents are at an absolute minimum. If your employer has not taken these measures to ensure you are in a safe working environment, it is your right as well as your responsibility to pursue a claim. Law firms such as Accident Advice Helpline are established to allow you to make a no win no fee* claim after an accident at work with a minimum level of stress – once you have provided our highly trained and sensitive advisors with your details and information, we will do the rest of the work for you.
With regards to the financials; your employer will be protected by indemnity insurance and so the compensation amount will not come from their own pockets. Most people find that there is no ill feeling between themselves and their employers following a successful claim and are able to return to work.
