    "If you've been injured through no fault of your own you could be entitled to compensation. If you're unsure if you could claim, I recommend you call Accident Advice Helpline."

    Esther Rantzen

    Accident Lawyer in Runnymede


    Have you been injured at work because of an accident? You could qualify to claim compensation through an accident lawyer in Runnymede, and if your case is successfully settled, you could be awarded a payout – which may be of immense help to you when you’re recovering.

    Finding an accident lawyer in Runnymede

    Accident Advice Helpline, a law firm that has been in business since 2000 and, today, is one of the largest law firms in the UK, has a team of solicitors who work on a no win no fee basis.

    Their job is to process claims on behalf of clients. When they do this, their aim is to secure the client the best payout possible, and they will do their professional best to settle a claim without the need for it to go to court. This is always preferable for the client – and for insurance companies, who save a lot of time and cost by settling early.

    What should you do if you get injured at work?

    The most obvious and important thing to do if you have an accident at work is to get medical attention as soon as possible. If an ambulance is needed, someone should call one. If not, you must at least go and see your doctor as soon as possible – if not that day, then certainly the next morning.

    But there are other things that you need to do, which could be helpful if you decide to claim against your employer through an accident lawyer in Runnymede:

    1) Tell your manager. Workplace accidents should always be reported. Tell your supervisor or line manager if you’ve been injured.

    2) Record what happened in the accident book. No matter how small you think your injury was, get it put in the accident book. Your supervisor may insist on this, anyway. Read the entry carefully and don’t sign it unless it is accurate.

    3) Help with the investigation of the incident. You will need to fill in an accident questionnaire, and your manager will need to write a report. Make sure you give as much detail as you can.

    4) If you’re off work because of what happened, tell your employer, because they will need to report any sick leave of three days or more to the Health and Safety Executive.

    5) Keep your own record of the aftermath of the accident. Start a diary and note your symptoms, both physical and psychological.
