Have you been looking for an accident lawyer in Welshpool? When you set off for work, you’re probably thinking of the day ahead – all the tasks you have to complete, meetings to attend, courses to go on, people to see. You probably don’t give a second thought to having an accident.
You don’t actually need to use a local accident lawyer in Welshpool. A national accident lawyer from Accident Advice Helpline will deal with many claims that arise from work accidents.
How many work injuries actually happen?
During a recent financial year, there were an estimated 629,000 accidents at work. Of these, 203,000 required time off work for three or more days. Most of these absences were actually for seven or more days.
That’s quite a lot of accidents. If you’re one of those people who has been injured at work, why not make a claim with us if you’ve been looking for an accident lawyer in Welshpool? You could start straight away.
How do you begin a claim with an accident lawyer in Welshpool?
It’s easy to set the wheels in motion with Accident Advice Helpline, one of the UK’s largest law firms. Simply call our hotline, speak to an adviser, and they will take your details.
If you’re eligible to claim, your advisor will pass your details to our legal team, where an accident lawyer will receive them and start work on your case.
What do you have to do as part of your claim?
There’s not much that the client needs to do. Most of the process will be taken care of by the accident lawyer on your behalf, leaving you to recover from your injuries with as little stress as possible.
Most cases dealt with by Accident Advice Helpline don’t involve going to court, either, which gives the client peace of mind. Insurers usually prefer to settle out of court, anyway – it saves them time and money.
Is it okay to claim against your employer?
Yes, it certainly is. They are obliged to provide you with a safe working environment, and if you’ve had an accident at work, it could be an indication that it’s not as safe as it should be.
Employers’ liability insurance is taken out by employers for the purpose of paying out when claims are made. Most bosses expect their employees to claim if they get injured – but no matter what your boss’s views on claiming are, it would be illegal for them to treat you unfavourably or sack you because you made a claim, so do go ahead.
