Contrary to popular belief, there is no such thing as a minor accident at work. Even seemingly innocuous accidents can have severe consequences, not just for yourself but for your friends and relatives, too.
While nothing can make up for your pain and suffering, filing a compensation claim can at least ease the financial burden on you and your family. You may feel uneasy about the prospect of claiming against your employer, but you have a legal right to receive the compensation you need to move past your injuries and get on with your life.
Time is of the essence when filing a Carmarthenshire accident at work claim
If you intend to file a Carmarthenshire accident at work claim, it pays to get the ball rolling as soon as possible. The time limit for filing a claim is three years, starting either from the date of your accident or the date on which you realised your injuries were linked to your accident, and if you fail to make your claim within this time, the court will not allow you to seek compensation for your injuries.
Hiring our solicitors could make all the difference to the success of your claim
When you file your claim, you may get strong opposition from your employer, who may even go so far as to claim that you were partly to blame for your Carmarthenshire accident at work. However, most times this is not the case, and employers tend to be helpful with your claim.
If your employer does protest though, the personal injury solicitors here at Accident Advice Helpline are fully conversant with the tactics used by employers and they can use their knowledge and skills to disprove your employer’s allegations and get you the compensation you deserve.
You do not even need to worry about paying for your legal fees. Our personal injury solicitors will take on your case on a 100% no-win, no-fee basis, which means that they will only agree to represent you if they feel you have a good chance of winning your Carmarthenshire accident at work claim.
It can take a considerable amount of time to prepare all the necessary paperwork for your claim so please get in touch with us today. The sooner you call our helpline and instruct our personal injury team to get started with your claim, the sooner you can receive your compensation settlement. Call us today free on 0800 689 0500 from a landline, or 0333 500 0993 from a mobile phone, but your network provider may charge you for this call.
