If you have had an accident in your job and suffered from an injury then our solicitors at Accident Advice Helpline might be able to help you make a claim for compensation.
Accident Advice Helpline
Accident Advice Helpline is a law firm (not a claim management company) powered by professional and fully qualified solicitors who are on hand to help you win the financial compensation that you deserve whether you have suffered an injury from an accident in your job, on the road, or in any other location for that matter.
We know that if you have been injured in an accident that was not your fault, not only is it painful, but it can also be quite inconvenient if it has an impact on your personal or professional life. For example, if you have suffered injury because of an accident in your job you may have to take time off from work in order to ensure you make a full recovery. Depending on your contract, and the amount of time you need to take away from your job, this period of time may be paid at a reduced rate, or may not be paid at all.
As a result suffering from an injury sustained from an accident in your job can become quite a costly situation. We have known clients whose bills have spiralled out of control because they could not meet repayments, have incurred charges as they have had to go overdrawn in their accounts, and have become depressed as a result of their ever increasingly depressing financial worries. All because their employer did not ensure their safety.
We therefore completely understand why, if you have suffered an injury at work, that you might want to make a claim against your employer.
In many cases making a claim against an employer will help spur them into action. This may mean they readdress their safety procedures, or reporting processes. It might mean that they install new equipment, or have old equipment maintained and checked on a more regular basis.
By making a claim against an employer who has been responsible for your accident you may be helping your colleagues and co-workers by helping to ensure that the same terrible fate does not befall them.
Hurt in an accident in your job?
Work based accidents can take many different forms, and some of them are more complex than others. For example, industrial diseases can take some time to present themselves, and it can be harder to establish which exposure led to the development of a condition.
But this is why we have specialist solicitors working for us, so regardless of the type of injury sustained in work that you wish to claim for, Accident Advice Helpline can help you.
So for expert legal advice about a possible claim call Accident Advice Helpline today on: 0800 689 0500 from a landline or: 0333 500 0993 from a mobile.
