    Accident at work claim in Chorley


    When it comes to claiming personal injury compensation because of an accident at work, it may seem as though there’s too much to consider. It can even appear as though there are so many factors and variables in play that you might never work them out, which would make anyone think twice about claiming the compensation that they deserve and are entitled to.

    That isn’t necessarily the case! All you have to do is stay calm, stay collected, and take everything step by step – it’s a lot easier to make an accident at work claim in Chorley than you might think!

    Step 1: Were you involved in an accident?

    This may seem obvious and straightforward at first, but it’s worth considering: in some cases, someone who wasn’t involved in the accident themselves may want to claim compensation on someone else’s behalf. For example, if a parent finds that their child has been injured as a result of medical negligence, they may decide to pursue a claim for compensation.

    Similarly, if a person’s partner has become incapacitated as a result of an accident, that person may wish to claim. Each set of circumstances is unique – and the best source of information is a personal injury law firm advisor.

    Step 2: Was the accident someone else’s fault?

    If the accident was caused as a result of someone else’s negligence or oversight and you were not responsible, you may be eligible to make an accident at work claim in Chorley. However, if you were responsible for the accident, you will be ineligible for compensation.

    Step 2: Did the accident cause an injury for which you received medical attention?

    If you were injured, there may be evidence of your injury recorded in an on-site Accident Book, or there may be eyewitnesses to your accident and injury. If so, this could make your case that much stronger, as there will be physical evidence that can back up your claim.

    Step 3: Did the accident occur within the last three years?

    If your accident occurred more than three years ago, it’s unlikely that you will be able to make a claim for compensation – however, there are exceptions. If you were a minor at the time of the accident, or in cases of industrial diseases and occupational exposure to carcinogens, you may be eligible to have the three-year limit extended for an accident at work claim in Chorley. It’s worth talking to an advisor to check the particulars of your case.
