    Claiming after an injury at work in Hackney

    Personal Injury Solicitors in Hackney

    Have you been injured at work? You could be entitled to claim compensation, and making a claim may not be the stressful process that you assume it is.

    Claiming against your employer

    For many people, the prospect of claiming after an injury at work in Hackney is something that fills them with dread. Their job is important to them because their salary pays the bills, including the rent or mortgage. They might also enjoy working for their employer.

    However, if you have been a victim of an accident at work that could and should have been avoided, you are entitled to make a claim.

    Will it affect your job?

    Making a claim against an employer should not affect your job, current position or salary level. It would be illegal for your employer to dismiss you for claiming.

    Think of your compensation claim as a positive thing. Compensation claims of this nature can force a change in the safety culture of the workplace, making it an altogether safer environment.

    What you need to know about claiming after an injury at work in Hackney

    Just like compensation claims in other circumstances, there is a set of criteria that need to be met in order for the case to be able to proceed to a successful conclusion.

    As well as high quality, specialist legal representation from Accident Advice Helpline, your case will also need to satisfy certain conditions.

    Firstly, the accident must not have been your fault. Employers have a legal responsibility to keep you safe but in doing so, as an employee, you also need to ensure you follow policies, wear protective gear as supplied and so on.

    There are times, however, when these items may not be supplied and thus you are placed at risk. If you think this happened in your case, make the call to Accident Advice Helpline today.

    Secondly, when did it happen? If you are claiming after an accident at work, you need to be aware there is a three-year deadline within which a claim had to be made, starting from the moment it can be reasonably assumed the injuries were caused by the accident. Did you make a note of the date you were hurt?

    The impact of your injuries on your life

    What were your injuries and their impact? Many people looking to claim compensation for injuries have already sought medical advice and treatment, but if you need to go for an additional medical test, this is something that we will arrange for you.

    We also need to know how these injuries impacted on your life. Are you able to do the same job, for example? Do you need help at home? Have you also experienced emotional trauma?

    If you are claiming after an injury at work in Hackney, you need the specialists in compensation claims on your side. The law firm to choose is Accident Advice Helpline. Call us now to discuss your case on 0800 689 0500 from a landline or 0333 500 0993 from a mobile.
