    Things to know about claiming after an accident at work in Northumberland

    Thinking about seeking compensation for a workplace accident?

    It’s only natural that you may have a number of questions. Even if you work in a high-risk work environment, you expect that those responsible for your safety will treat this responsibility with the utmost respect. If your employer has neglected his or her duty to abide by health and safety legislation, and you have been injured as a result, you could be owed a substantial sum in compensation.

    If you are thinking about claiming after an accident at work in Northumberland, read below to find out more about some of the most important things you should know:

    You cannot lose your job for making a claim

    Many people are naturally worried about the impact seeking compensation will have on their employment. It is important to remember that if your employer has failed you, they have displayed negligence and are therefore in the wrong. You cannot lose your job over seeking compensation, as this would be unfair dismissal. You can therefore proceed with a claim in confidence, knowing you are doing the right thing.

    Your employer does not pay out of pocket

    Employers have indemnity insurance in place, so they will not be liable for paying your compensation out of pocket anyway. This can provide more peace of mind that you are not going to be angering your employer by making a claim.

    You have up to three years to make a claim

    Even if you have been injured some time ago, it’s not too late to seek compensation. In accordance with UK law, you have up to three years from the date of the accident in which to make a claim, so you can focus on your recovery first and then on obtaining the financial settlement you deserve.

    You don’t have to pay upfront to get started

    With Accident Advice Helpline, you do not have to worry about a deposit standing in the way of you receiving the compensation you deserve. That’s because we work on a no win, no fee* basis, so nothing is payable upfront.
