It’s not always clear when you may be entitled to personal injury compensation after an accident. Add to that the fact that not everyone needs to consider compensation during their lives, and it quickly becomes obvious why someone may find the claims process confusing.
But at Accident Advice Helpline, one of the largest law firms in the United Kingdom that specialises in personal injury law, we aim to make the claims process as easy and accessible for our clients as we can: and that begins right now, by helping you find out if you could be eligible for compensation, and how much you might be able to gain with successful accident at work claims in Doncaster.
Find out if you could be eligible, with Accident Advice Helpline’s assistance
In most cases, you may be considered eligible for compensation from a personal injury claim if you meet the following criteria:
- You were injured and required medical assistance due to an accident. The accident must have caused physical or mental harm requiring medical attention.
- The accident was not your fault, but the result of another person’s negligence. Employers have a duty of care towards their employees – and if there was a breach in this duty of care that led to your accident, they would be considered responsible for the accident taking place.
- The accident took place less than three years ago. If more than three years have elapsed, you may no longer be considered eligible, unless you were a minor at the time of your accident.
What about finding out how much compensation you could gain? It’s not possible to get a guarantee for an amount of compensation at such an early stage in the claims process, but you can get an estimate for what you could receive using Accident Advice Helpline’s 30-second test.
The 30-second test is an online compensation calculator available on our website completely for free, and all you have to do is answer some questions about your accident and injury; less than a minute later, you’ll receive your free compensation estimate.
