    Claiming after an accident at work in Greater Manchester

    Personal Injury Solicitors in Greater Manchester

    Have you been injured while carrying out work duties? Do you need advice on claiming after an accident at work in Greater Manchester? If so, Accident Advice Helpline’s team of solicitors are here to help you to get the compensation you deserve.

    When should you start claiming after an accident at work in Greater Manchester?

    Everyone’s circumstances are different, so there’s no ideal time to start claiming. However, there is a time limit from the date of an accident for bringing proceedings. This is three years.

    Don’t let this make you think that you can wait for a long time, though. Firstly, when you have an accident, you will be able to recall what happened for a while, but eventually, the memories will fade. Yes, you can write things down, and you certainly should, but it’s better to begin the process when things are fresh in your mind.

    Secondly, your inclination to claim might diminish as time passes. Your recovery from your accident is your top priority right now, but a few months down the line, other things will be on your mind.

    Our advice would be to call us as soon as you feel ready. Have a rest, collect your thoughts, and pick up the phone.

    Who can claim for a workplace accident?

    Anyone who has been injured in an accident in the workplace could be eligible for compensation. It doesn’t matter whether you got a broken ankle in a trip and fall in an office, or you suffered multiple fractures because you fell from some scaffolding on a building site.

    Employers must, by law, provide a safe environment for their workers. If there has been an accident and someone has suffered an injury, it is an indication that the workplace isn’t sufficiently safe.

    Employees shouldn’t worry about being sacked or mistreated if they choose to claim. We know that many people fear repercussions if they claim compensation, so please let us put your mind at rest.

    Firstly, compensation comes out of employers’ liability insurance, not a company’s funds, so there would be no financial basis for any ill-treatment towards you. Secondly, it would be illegal for an employer to fire you for making a claim. They could end up in court, and that’s not something that they would be willing to risk.

    Why not claim now?

    To begin your claim, call Accident Advice Helpline on one of these numbers:

    • Dial 0800 689 0500 from a landline
    • Dial 0333 500 0993 from a mobile

    One of our advisors will talk you through the process, and if you’re eligible to claim, your case can be passed to our legal team. A no win no fee* solicitor will handle your claim, dealing with all the paperwork and aiming to secure you a payout.

    We look forward to assisting you. Get on the phone to us as soon as possible.
