Perhaps you live and work in Huntly and are thinking of making an injury claim because you have been involved in an accident that was not your fault. You could also be eligible to make a claim if you are, or have been, ill and you can prove that your illness was caused by another person’s negligence. You may, for example have been diagnosed with a work-related illness or an occupational disease, and in such a case, you would probably have grounds to make an accident claim in Huntly with the help of Accident Advice Helpline.
Making an accident claim in Huntly
It’s a good idea to get advice as soon as you can after an accident, and you can start your claim whenever you want, but you have 3 years from the date of an accident to make an accident claim in Huntly. The same is true of a work-related illness, but the 3 years starts from first being diagnosed by your doctor.
It is best to file a claim as soon as possible so as to be within the time frame set out in the Statute of Limitations. You should ask for legal advice from Accident Advice Helpline to find out how long you have to make a claim for your particular accident.
Accidents at work
If you have an accident at work, you should report it immediately to the person responsible for reporting accidents to the Health and Safety Executive (HSE). The details of the accident including the date and time should be recorded in the accident book, along with the names and contact details of any witnesses. You should seek immediate medical treatment for your injury, not only for health reasons, but because if you don’t, and your injury grows worse, this could negatively affect your case for an accident claim in Huntly.
You may believe that your accident will not be reported to the HSE, and if that is so, you can report it to them directly. Your employer should also inform them of the number of days you were absent from work because of your injury.
