Suffering an accident at work can be a distressing experience. If you have been left with serious personal injuries, you may encounter complications that extend far beyond the physical pain of your injuries. We therefore recommend that you make a personal injury claim against your employer as a means of seeking justice for your accident.
Proving your innocence
Before you commence your Cefn-mawr accident at work claim through us, you must be able to prove that your employer was at fault for your accident. To safeguard your legal position, you should gather as much evidence as you can at the time of your accident or as soon as possible after it. You should record your accident in your employer’s accident book, seek medical attention to receive treatment for your injuries, and retain receipts for any financial expenses you have had to pay out.
If your employer was at fault for your accident, their insurance company may contact you with an early settlement offer within days of learning about your accident. However, you should seek legal advice through our helpline on 0800 689 0500 or 0333 500 0993 from a mobile phone for free, no obligation advice or 30-second test before accepting such an offer as you may find that the offer is far too low.
Seeking representation for your Cefn-mawr accident at work claim
If you wish to return to work following your Cefn-mawr accident at work, you will need to ensure that you do not damage your relationship with your employer. For this reason, you should enlist the help of a specialist personal injury solicitor, who will assess your situation, advise you on your eligibility to compensation and provide you with legal representation. If you wish to hire legal help on a 100% no-win, no fee* basis, you should contact the team here at Accident Advice Helpline.
Helping your solicitor
The more information you can provide to your solicitor, the quicker you will receive your compensation settlement. You should ideally have kept detailed notes of the date, time and circumstances surrounding your accident, and recorded the names and contact details of any witnesses. If you have this information to hand, please do not hesitate to offer it to us.
Receiving your compensation settlement
Although we aim to resolve all Cefn-mawr accident at work claims in a timely manner, your case may go on for years, especially if it is disputed by your employer. This can be disheartening, but it is important to realise that if your claim is legitimate, you will eventually receive a satisfactory compensation settlement.
