Chances are you’ve never considered the possibility of having an accident at work; after all, no matter what type of employment you’re in, it’s often the last thing you’d expect. However, it’s more common than you might think and the consequences can be severe. If you’ve been the victim of an accident in the workplace, you may be entitled to claim compensation.
If you’ve had an accident that wasn’t your fault, Accident Advice Helpline may be able to help you make an injury claim in Thornham.

Making a start with your injury claim
Work with AAH and we guarantee making your injury claim in Thornham will be as straightforward as possible. In most cases, you won’t even need to attend court – the majority of cases can be handled over the telephone. We may ask for one additional medical assessment, in order to better understand your injury, but as a general rule we don’t ask for much.
Usually, all claims must be made within three years. However, if your case concerns either a minor or an incident of industrial disease, this time limit may be more flexible. Please note that the length of time that elapses between filing your claim and the receipt of any compensation you are entitled to varies from case to case; as such, guaranteeing a time frame is usually impossible.
Figuring out if you qualify for compensation
There are several types of accident that may qualify for compensation. Common claims include road traffic accidents, trips and falls, medical negligence, criminal injury and food poisoning.
You can also visit the AAH website and take our 30-second test, which may give you a firmer idea of your entitlement.
The compensation you’ll receive
If your claim is successful, your compensation amount will usually be made up of a lump sum payment for your injury, plus reimbursement costs such as:
- Loss of earnings
- Home help
- Travel costs
- Medical expenses
We can provide an estimate of what your claim may be worth; however, these are not guaranteed. Successful claims are also subject to a referral fee.
