Have you been involved in a workplace accident?
You could be entitled to claim compensation. Many people are not aware that under certain circumstances, making a claim is a legal right, while others are simply confused about the process. As one of the UK’s leading personal injury law firms, we receive over 25,000 enquiries a month from people that have been injured, and want to know more about compensation. Here, we answer some of the most asked questions in clear and simple terms, with no legal jargon:
Who can make an accident at work claim in Croydon for compensation?
You are within your legal rights in the UK to claim compensation if you have been injured at work within the past three years in an accident that was in no way your fault. If the negligence of another party has caused your accident, you are within your rights to make a compensation claim.
Is it expensive to claim compensation?
At Accident Advice Helpline, we undertake all cases on a ‘no win, no fee’ basis, meaning there is no need to pay any money upfront to get a claim underway. We adopt this approach to underline our belief in a successful settlement in the cases we do undertake, and also to make our legal care more affordable.
How long does it take to receive compensation?
Some cases can be settled out of court, and in these cases it can be much quicker to receive the money you are due, but ultimately the time it takes to pay out will vary from case to case.
How much do you get for an accident at work claim in Croydon?
A number of factors are considered when deciding how much a claim is worth – the nature of the injury, the severity of the injury, the treatment involved, the costs that have arisen as a result and any lost income being a few. To find out how much your specific claim is worth, take thirty seconds to fill in our online claims calculator, or call Accident Advice Helpline to receive an assessment over the phone.
Is there a time limit in regards to making a claim?
There is a three-year time limit in place for making a claim, but no minimum amount of time involved. You can claim right away, or wait until you are fully recovered and know the full extent of your rehabilitation to start a claim.
