    Accident at work in Cannock Chase

    Personal Injury Solicitors in Cannock Chase

    Being victim to an accident at work in Cannock Chase is bad enough – but it can get worse. If you do not follow the right procedures, you could lose your right to claim compensation.

    To protect your legal rights, follow these six simple tips:

    1. Document your accident at work in Cannock Chase

    If there were any witnesses to your accident, take down their names and contact details. In addition, record your accident in your employer’s accident book, and take photos or videos of the hazard that caused your accident.

    2 See a doctor

    Seeing a doctor is always a good idea as without proper medical documentation, it will be difficult for you to prove that your injuries occurred as a result of your accident at work in Cannock Chase.

    3. Do not say too much

    You are not legally required to answer any questions about your accident, so do not say anything to your employer until you have consulted with a solicitor. If you provide your employer with all the information they require, you could inadvertently deny yourself the chance to make a claim.

    4. Do not sign anything

    Your employer may try to persuade you to sign a waiver that says they were not at fault for your accident. They will often do this while you are still in shock. If you sign any paperwork without first consulting a solicitor, you may end up out of pocket.

    5. Understand the time limits

    Under a law called the statute of limitation, you have a limited amount of time to file a claim after an accident at work in Cannock Chase. For most accidents, this time frame is three years. Failure to file a claim within this time may strip you of your right to compensation, so do not let this time limit lapse.

    6. Call us
