Claiming after an accident at work in Burnley is not as difficult as you may think. If your accident was down to the irresponsible behaviour or negligent actions of someone else, you may be entitled to make a claim for personal injury compensation.
You have just three years after the date of your accident, or from the date that it became apparent that your injury or illness was a result of the incident to start the process. Claiming sooner rather than later is always advisable, as the details will still be fresh in your mind.
Claiming after an accident at work in Burnley
Here at Accident Advice Helpline, we know that securing compensation will not take the pain and suffering from your injury away, nor will it wipe away traumatic memories. What it can do however, is take away some of the financial strain that a serious accident can put upon you.
If you are unable to work, you are unable to earn money, which is a huge problem when it comes to paying your rent or mortgage, bills, supporting your family, and the additional costs of medical care and travel expenses incurred because of your injury. A successful compensation claim will cover all of these.
To make a claim, you will need to tell us all about the accident – who was involved, where and where it happened. We will also need to know about the medical attention that you received. We may ask you to come in for one additional medical assessment to determine the extent of your injuries and your long term prognosis. Apart from that, your claim should be able to be dealt with via the phone or post – most claimants do not need to appear in court for a settlement to be reached.
