    Caldicot accident at work

    If you have been injured at work through no fault of your own, whether as a result of a manual handling accident, a collision in a company vehicle, or a slip, trip or fall, you may be considering making a 100% no-win, no-fee claim for compensation through the legal team here at Accident Advice Helpline. If you can prove that your accident occurred due to your employer’s negligence, it is highly likely that you will have a valid Caldicot accident at work claim.

    Start your Caldicot accident at work claim before it is too late

    If you were over the age of 18 at the time of your Caldicot accident at work, the general rule is that you have three years, starting from the date of your accident, in which to bring your claim against your employer. If you have not settled your claim, or issued court proceedings, by the third anniversary of your accident, you will not be able to receive compensation for your injuries.

    There are some exceptions to the three-year rule, but they are not easy to meet. If you were not aware of your injury until some time after the date of your accident, the three-year period will not start until you first had knowledge of your injury.

    If you were under the age of 18 at the time of your Caldicot accident at work, the three-year time limit will still apply to your claim. However, rather than having three years from the date of your accident, you will have three years from the date of your 18th birthday in which to start your claim. You must therefore settle your claim, or start court proceedings, before you turn 21 years of age.

    Talk to our experts today

    Although there are time limits in which you must commence court proceedings for your Caldicot accident at work claim, you do not have to wait a set period of time before you can start your claim. In fact, if you suffered your accident today, you would be within your rights to start your claim today! One of the main advantages of filing a claim immediately after your accident is that it will be easier for your legal team to collect all the evidence they need to successfully prove your claim.
