Have you been injured in an accident at work? If so, you could be eligible to claim compensation through an accident solicitor in Glenrothes – and you don’t need to worry about making a claim against your employer.
Why you shouldn’t worry
Employers have a duty to ensure that you have a safe working environment, and if you get injured at work, then it could be because your workplace is not safe. Even though this is the case, people worry about claiming – and quite understandably, too.
But if you make a claim against your employer, any payout awarded will not come out of their profits; it will be paid by their insurance firm. Your boss will have employers’ liability insurance, and do you know what the purpose of this insurance is? Answer: to deal with claims of this nature.
There is also the worry that your employer will fire you for making a claim, or make your life difficult afterwards. You shouldn’t worry about this, either – if that were to happen, it would be against the law. Your employer could end up in court.
Eligibility to claim through an accident solicitor in Glenrothes
You should qualify to claim if your injuries were sustained in an accident in the workplace that wasn’t your fault. You can check your eligibility by going to Accident Advice Helpline website and taking our 30 second test, if you wish – or, if you prefer, just call our 24/7 hotline and speak to an advisor.
Our contact numbers are as follows:
- Dial 0800 689 0500 from a landline
- Dial 0333 500 0993 from a mobile
Alternatively, send us a message: just text “claim365” to 88010 and someone will call you back to go through all the details with you.
Our team of advisers
All the advisors who handle the calls to our hotline are professional and friendly. They have gone through rigorous training, so they can answer any questions you might have about the claiming process.
They also possess excellent interpersonal skills. They will treat you with empathy and sensitivity in all their dealings with you, and take down your details in confidence.
Everyone who works for Accident Advice Helpline must adhere to a code of conduct, underpinned by integrity, dependability, reliability and accountability. This includes the no win no fee* solicitors, who process the cases that we handle.
Your accident solicitor in Glenrothes will do as much as possible on your behalf. There’s probably no need for you to attend court, but you will need to undergo an additional medical assessment in order for your case to proceed.
Make sure you don’t wait too long to get started: you have just three years from the date of the injury to make your work-related injury claim. If it’s an industrial disease, the deadline is extended – so if you are ill because you have worked with dangerous substances such as asbestos in the past, please don’t hesitate to call us. We look forward to helping you. Call free on 0800 689 0500 or 0333 500 0993 from a mobile phone for free, no obligation advice about making a claim.
