    FAQ about using an accident solicitor in East Sussex to make a workplace accident claim 

    If you have been injured in the workplace and want to make a personal injury claim you will probably have a million different questions running through your mind. Read on to discover the answers to some of the most common questions in regards to using an accident solicitor in East Sussex to make a workplace accident claim.

    Will my employer fire me if I make a workplace claim against them?

     It is understandable that you may be worried about this, but you really shouldn’t be. If your employer is at fault, they will understand that you need to be compensated and they will have insurance in place to cover this. Moreover, sacking you would merely land them in more trouble, as you would have grounds for unfair dismissal.

    How long have I got to make a claim?

    You have three years to make a personal injury claim from the date of the accident. If you have suffered an injury that has occurred over time, such as industrial deafness or repetitive strain injury, you will have three years from the date of your diagnosis instead.

    I don’t have enough money to make a claim… What can I do?

    At Accident Advice Helpline all of our solicitors work on a no win no fee basis, which means you don’t actually need any money to start the claim process. Your accident solicitor in East Sussex will be paid in relation to the outcome of the case. This means that financial risk is also eliminated.

    Do I need to tell anyone about the incident?

    You will need to report the accident to your employer and / or safety representative. All employers are required to have an accident book by law and thus the incident must be recorded in here. This will also serve as proof of the accident when you come to make a claim.

    Will I have to go to court?

    It is impossible to say, however it is highly unlikely that you will need to go to court. Less than three per cent of personal injury cases actually result in a trial.
