If you have had an accident that caused you injury, you could be eligible to claim compensation. To qualify, the accident must have been caused by someone else.
Checking your eligibility
If you’re not sure whether you qualify, take the 30-second test on Accident Advice Helpline’s website. After inputting a few details, you will get your answer.
Eligible people could then, if they wish, make a claim through an accident lawyer in Elmbridge. But some people are wary about going ahead.
Why you might not proceed with a claim
There is still some stigma attached to making a claim, largely because media reports have led people to believe that people receive massive payouts that they don’t deserve. An accident Lawyer in Elmbridge will talk this through with you on a no-win, no-fee basis.
Such reporting has been highly misleading, failing to take into account the costs of care that someone might need, the impact it has had upon their ability to live their life independently.
Claiming against your employer
At Accident Advice Helpline, we would tell anyone who gets injured at work that they shouldn’t worry about any of this, and they should call us to get their claim started with an accident lawyer in Elmbridge as soon as possible.
That’s because your employer doesn’t have any right to treat you unfairly because you’ve made a claim against them. In fact, they might end up in court if they did, because it’s against the law.
If you know this but you’re still worried about claiming, it’s possibly because you fear that your employer will have to pay for your claim out of the company’s profits. This might lead to resentment – after all, what if cuts are made at work? You might be unpopular with your colleagues.
Let us reassure you that any payout made will not be hurting your employer’s bottom line. That’s because they will have employers’ liability insurance, which is taken out by employers specifically for claims such as yours. The insurance policy takes care of the payout.
