Accidents at work happen all the time, and some of them result in serious injuries and even death. The number of seriously injured and victims killed over the last twenty years has steadily decreased. Despite this, people continue to be injured and sometimes lose their lives each year.
If you are involved in an accident at work that was not your own fault, you could be entitled to compensation. The easiest way to get this is by making an Ashfield accident at work claim with the help of Accident Advice helpline. We will guide you through making a claim. We can make sure you get the maximum amount of compensation that you deserve.
Talking to Accident Advice Helpline about your Ashfield accident at work claim
Every employer, throughout the UK, has a legal duty to make sure that they protect the health and safety of all of employees while they are at work. If they fail to comply with the health and safety rules, a staff member could have an accident.
This would be due to no fault of their own. If that was the case, the employer might have to face an Ashfield accident at work claim. This could be the result of the employee contacting Accident Advice Helpline.
The first thing most victims want to know is how much compensation they are likely to receive. This can only ever be an estimate at the start of the claim, but is based on past awards made for similar injuries. Our unique 30-second test on our website will give you an idea, you just need to remember the amount is not guaranteed. It could increase or decrease.
The reason it is only an estimate
Every victim, every accident and every injury is different. This means that every personal injury claim we process is different. The items included in the claim can vary, but could include:
- The impact on your life
- Prognosis for the future
- Loss of earnings
- Travel costs
- Extra medical expenses
- Cost of getting jobs completed that you would have done yourself, such as cleaning or gardening
- Home adaption of you now need ramps fitted or something similar
- Any other cost or loss associated with the accident and your injuries
- Pain and suffering
- Anxiety and stress
These are just a few of the things that can alter the amount of compensation you are awarded. We have to take all this into account when we are making your personal injury claim.
