    Blackpool Car Accident Claims

    Commonly asked questions about making work accident claims

    If you have been in an accident at work, you may well be thinking about the next steps when it comes to compensation.

    If you have been in an accident that was not your fault within the past three years, you could be within your rights to make a claim, but many people fail to follow through on this right. It exists to protect workers, and prevent them from paying for things like medical care out of pocket.

    If someone else’s actions have lead to you being injured or even becoming ill, you could make a claim to recover the money you have paid out of your own wages. If you have questions about making Blackpool car accident claims, read on to get the facts and become informed about your right to claim:

    How do I know if I can make a claim?

    You can make a compensation claim if you have been injured in an accident at work that was caused by someone else’s negligence. Your employer has a duty of care to provide a safe work environment, which means adhering to health and safety legislation at all times. If they fail to do this, innocent people can be seriously injured.

    How can I prove I was not at fault?

    The more evidence you can provide to support you were not to blame, the better the chances of a successful claim. You can provide anything from images taken with a camera phone to a workplace accident form, witness statements and even closed circuit camera footage. Particularly if you are employed as a driver, many places have CCTV on the roads.

    Will I lose my job for making Blackpool car accident claims?

    Many employees fail to make a claim over fears they will be victimised, bullied or even fired, but it is very unlikely this will be the case. For a start, it is illegal according to the Employment Rights Act (1996) to sack an employee for making a claim for compensation.

    How is claim worth calculated?

    To determine what you could be owed, we will analyse a number of factors, including the amount you have spent on medical care, if you have lost any wages because of the injuries, and the physical/psychological effect the accident has had. You can see roughly what this will amount to by using our online claims calculator, but you can get a more detailed quote simply by calling our helpline.
