In the minutes, hours and days following an accident at work in Llandrindod Wells, it can be difficult to think clearly enough to consider important issues such as liability and compensation, but with so many potential mishaps that can ultimately harm your chances of receiving compensation, dealing with the aftermath of an accident in a sensible and logical way is a must. To tackle your accident appropriately, and preserve your right to compensation, avoid these common mistakes:
Even if you think you were partly at fault for your accident at work in Llandrindod Wells, do not apologise to anyone. Let your solicitor investigate your accident and determine where the fault lies.
- Comparing notes
Avoid comparing your version of the event with that of your employer. You should give a brief account of the facts to your employer, if requested, but you should refer any further communications to your solicitor.
- Losing your temper
Emotions can run high when you are in pain after an accident, but if you find yourself becoming upset, agitated or angry, retreat to a quiet place. By refusing to engage in emotional dialogue, you will avoid turning your accident into a major altercation.
- Talking to your employer’s insurer
If you are approached by your employer’s insurer, consult your solicitor. They can help you to prepare a statement, or can communicate with the insurer on your behalf. The insurer should help you, but in reality, they will have trained their staff to ask questions designed to make your version of the events surrounding your accident look as weak as possible.
