If you’ve had an accident at work in Middlesbrough, it is essential that you get advice on how to claim compensation. Whether your accident was very recent, or you’re experiencing health problems a couple of years down the line as a result of the accident, getting legal advice from Accident Advice Helpline will help you find out how much compensation you could be entitled to.
Claiming for recent accidents at work
If you have been injured recently due to a workplace accident, you should begin legal proceedings immediately so that you can claim the compensation needed to help you get back on your feet. We would recommend calling our 24/7 helpline to receive some initial advice on how you can take legal action and how much compensation you could claim.
Receiving compensation for historical accidents
Often, people do not immediately realise that they are entitled to compensation for their workplace accident, but months or years in the future look back and wonder if they should have made a claim. Equally, you may not experience any serious health problems immediately after your accident, and only feel the need to claim compensation when they arise later on. Usually, claims can only be made if the accident occurred within the last three years. There are exceptions to this though, so try our 30-second online test to see how much you could be entitled to for your historical accident.
Compensation for industrial diseases
Although we usually can only take on your case for an accident at work in Middlesbrough if it happened within the past three years, we can extend this time frame for those who suffer from industrial diseases, which may have been caused several years previously. In this case, you can speak to one of our highly trained advisors in complete confidence and with no obligation to proceed further; simply talking to an expert will help you to know where you stand in terms of taking legal action.
Minors involved in an accident at work in Middlesbrough
If you had an accident when you were a minor and believe you should have received compensation, we could take on your case even if the incident occurred more than three years ago. As with all clients, your claim can be processed over the phone and you may not even have to attend court in order to win your case.
Accident Advice Helpline has over 10 years’ experience dealing with workplace accidents and a team of highly qualified solicitors to take on your case. Contact us today for friendly advice and to receive the compensation you deserve.
