Frequently asked questions after suffering an accident at work
If you’ve been hurt in an accident, you may be confused about your rights to claim compensation.
There’s a great deal of misinformation pertaining to workplace accident claims, which may contribute to people that are well within their rights to make a claim not to do so.
At Accident Advice Helpline, we believe everyone should be able to seek out the maximum amount possible in a settlement, which is why we’ve compiled some answers to the most commonly asked questions we receive when it comes to workplace injuries.
How do I know if I can make a claim for my accident at work in Wealden?
You are eligible to make a claim for an injury sustained in an accident at work in Wealden provided that it took place within the past three years, and you can prove that you were not at fault. Under UK law, if someone else’s negligence has caused you an injury, you are entitled to seek compensation.
How can Accident Advice Helpline help me?
Accident Advice Helpline is a full service law firm, specialising in the area of personal injury. We have handled a myriad of workplace injury claims over the past fourteen years, and help award over £30 million a year in compensation payouts. We are not a claims management company, but a nationwide firm with a large number of solicitors working throughout England, Scotland and Wales.
With our help, you can ensure that whoever was responsible for your accident is made to pay for it, not you.
How much will I get?
Compensation is awarded on a case-by-case basis, dependent on factors such as the extent and nature of the injury, the costs of treatment involved, if you’ve had to take any time off work to recuperate and so forth.
To get an idea of how much you could be entitled to receive, you can get a quick quote either online or over the phone. Our workplace injury claims calculator will provide you with a rough estimate in just thirty seconds, or you can speak to one of our claims advisers who will be more than happy to analyse your case in detail.
What does No Win, No Fee mean?
This term refers to a conditional fee agreement that stipulates you don’t have to pay any money upfront to get a claim underway. With no deposit required, it’s easy for people to afford both the medical and legal care they require after being involved in an accident.
Will I have to face my employer in court?
Not necessarily. In many cases, our lawyers have managed to settle cases out of court, expediting the payout process and making life easier on the accident victim.
