    "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."

    Every year, thousands of people are injured at work. Many of these people could be entitled to make a claim for compensation against their employer – and if they were to do so, and win their case, they would receive a payout.

    If you’ve been injured in a workplace accident, why not make a claim through an accident lawyer in Ryedale?

    Don’t fear reprisals

    One thing that, quite understandably, stops people from going ahead is the fear that they will be sacked from their job if they make a claim against their employer.

    At Accident Advice Helpline, our advice is: don’t worry! Your employer would not be able to fire you because you’ve made a claim – this would be illegal. In fact, employers expect their employees to make claims. They also have employers’ liability insurance, which means that payouts are dealt with via insurance – they don’t come out of the company’s profits.

    Claim through an accident lawyer in Ryedale

    To begin your claim, call 0800 689 0500 from a landline, or 0333 500 0993 from a mobile, and talk to an advisor on our 24/7 hotline now. Alternatively, text “claim365” to 88010 and someone will call you back.

    Open Claim Calculator

    If you want to check your eligibility to claim before you go ahead, why not go to Accident Advice Helpline’s website and take the 30 second test so you can find out? While you’re there, use the free compensation calculator to get an estimate of what you might be awarded if you win.

    Make sure your accident is properly recorded

    When you claim, your accident lawyer in Ryedale will be assisted to a great extent by evidence. This should be readily available in cases of workplace accident and injury, because they have to be recorded in several ways:

    Accident book – your employer will have an accident book, into which the details of your accident will be entered. You will sign under the entry – so make sure it’s accurate.

    Questionnaire – you will fill in an accident questionnaire as soon as possible after the accident has happened. This will enable you to give full details of your injuries and everything else to do with the incident.

    Investigation report – your employer will look into the accident thoroughly and write a report.

    Meeting minutes – what happened will be discussed in a management meeting.

    HSE report – if you’re absent for three or more days as a result of your accident, your employer has to report it to the Health and Safety Executive.
