    Claiming after an accident at work in Cornwall


    Are you claiming after an accident at work in Cornwall? If so, read this guide to ensure you understand your rights and have the best chance of finding a locally based lawyer who can provide all the help and support you need to make an effective claim.

    About your case

    As in all personal injury claims you will have to show three things: that the accident was someone else’s fault, that it happened within the last three years and that your injuries have been severe enough to require medical attention. As long as you can satisfy those three things you should be in with a good chance.

    In relation to workplace claims, your employer is legally obliged to take all reasonable precautions to ensure the workplace is as safe as possible. If he or she fails to do this, they could be liable to pay compensation for any injuries caused as a result.

    These injuries could be temporary or the result of an ongoing condition. For example, in factories the continual loud noise on the floor can lead to a condition called industrial deafness. Your employer should take a number of precautions to prevent this becoming an issue. They can provide ear defenders or adjustments to the machinery to stop it becoming a problem.

    If they do not do this you may be able to make a claim. You’ll need a diagnosis from a doctor confirming that this is the cause of the accident and you’ll have to prove that your employer could and should have done something to prevent you suffering the condition.

    Making a claim

    Many people are put off making a claim for a couple of reasons. Some are worried about how much it might cost. Legal fees can be pretty pricey and without help most of us will not be able to afford them. The removal of legal aid left many people concerned about whether or not they could risk making a claim.

    However, no win no fee offers an alternative. As the name implies you will only have to pay legal fees if you win your case. It removes the biggest financial risk associated with claiming compensation and means you can press ahead without looking anxiously at your own bank balance.

    Working with us

    Here at Accident Advice Helpline, we’ve always worked on the basis of no win no fee. It means you can expect a great service from us and you needn’t be worried about what happens if you do not win your case.

    So, if you’re claiming after an accident at work in Cornwall, give our team a call today on 0800 689 0500 or 0333 500 0993 from a mobile.
