    Accident and injury claims in Derbyshire


    When you have been involved in an accident at work which you feel was the result of your employer’s negligence, you may want to make accident and injury claims in Derbyshire to help you to stay afloat financially whilst you are recovering.

    It is simple to make a compensation claim against your employer as long as you work with an experienced injury lawyer and know what steps you need to take in order to make your claim more successfully. Here are some of the ways that you can proceed with your claim once you have decided that you are entitled to compensation.

    Make your claim in a timely fashion

    If you do want to make a claim, you have to make sure that your accident was less than three years ago or you will struggle to find an injury lawyer to represent you. After three years it is too difficult to put together a claim which has a good chance of success, as all of the evidence is so old. Try to make your claim as soon as your accident happens, for a better chance of success.

    Gather as much evidence as you can

    Take a few photographs of the accident scene and anything else which backs up your claim (if a piece of equipment is faulty, for example, take a photograph of the fault). You should keep a copy of the accident report form and anything else which you consider a good form of evidence.

    Keep a record of your losses

    This will include wages lost due to being too ill or injured to work, money spent on prescriptions and treatment, and even taxi receipts if you are unable to drive. Your lawyer will be able to claim these losses back for you.
