    "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 Shepway

    Every year, thousands of people are affected by injuries that happen because of accidents at work. If you’re one of those people, you could claim compensation through an accident lawyer in Shepway – and if you win your case, you will receive a payout.

    Some statistics about workplace accidents

    According to the Health and Safety Executive, in the 2013-14 financial year, there were an estimated 629,000 workers who suffered an accident whilst at work. Of these, 203,000 were off work for three days or more – and 148,000 of this group were absent for over seven days.

    That’s quite a lot of people affected by injuries just through being at work and earning a living.

    Ironically, workplace injuries can actually stop you from going to work, as you can see from the figures above – and for some people, this can mean financial trouble. Even if you work somewhere that has a generous sick pay policy, you could find your wages cut after a while.

    Your financial problems could be made worse by the fact that you can’t perform your everyday tasks, such as taking the children to school, and cooking meals. You may need to hire home help or a childminder – and those services cost money.

    If you’re in this situation, why not make a claim against your employer? You don’t have to fear repercussions, because if you were to get fired or treated badly on your return to work, that would be against the law.

    Also, the money for your payout, if you’re successful, will come from employers’ liability insurance, which employers are required to have – it won’t be taken out of the company’s profits.

    Claiming might also lead to additional safety measures being put in place, which will help you and your work colleagues to avoid accidents in future.

    • Dial 0333 500 0993 from a mobile

    Alternatively, text “claim365” to 88010 and someone will call you back.
