Are you owed compensation?
First you may want to check that you are entitled to compensation for your work injury. You can do this by calling our helpline on 0800 689 0500.
Generally though, you can claim compensation for any work-related injury (or illness) so long as the incident that caused your injury was someone else’s fault, i.e. you were injured as a result of receiving inadequate manual handling training. You must see a doctor about the injury that you wish to claim for, as it needs to be in your medical record.
You need to start claim proceedings within three years of the date of our accident.
Claiming for work injuries in South Staffordshire – what you need to know
Claiming compensation for a work injury can be rather intimidating. Our lawyers understand this, and will do everything that they can to make claiming as simple and stress-free as possible. It is worth noting here that you cannot be dismissed from your job because you are seeking compensation from your employer – you have suffered an injury through someone else’s negligence therefore you have a legal right to seek compensation.
The majority of work accident claims that we handle are settled out of court, so there is a chance that your claim will be too.
How much compensation are you owed?
The amount of injury compensation that you receive will depend on how serious your injury was, and how much you are owed for injury related expenses, but you can rest assured that your injury lawyer will be working hard to get you the maximum amount of compensation for your injury. In the meantime you can get an estimate of how much you could be owed by using the simple compensation calculator tool on our website.
