The majority of employers and business owners do their best to be safety conscious and eliminate the chances of their workers suffering accidents at work. Unfortunately, some work environments are more dangerous than others and a risk of accidents is higher. Even in seemingly safe environments like shops and offices, a loose carpet, wet floor or trailing cable can cause an accident.

How long will claiming after a workplace accident in Tamworth take to settle?
Our experts will look at your case and tell you approximately how long it will take to process. Undisputed and relatively forward cases will take less time to finalise. Compensation claims that involve severe injuries, or class actions, may take longer. Factors that may affect the timescale of your claim are:
- Insurance companies having to investigate and process information and answers. Our experts will make sure that your claim is solved within the legal procedures and time limits that are set by the law.
- Disputes. Denial of liability and disagreement about settlement amounts can cause delay.
- Medical experts -that examine your injury may be slow due to their high demand, making them slow in finalising reports.
We endeavour to settle your claim as quickly as possible, by agreement and correspondance, to avoid going to court. Should a court appearance seem likely, your solicitor will discuss it with you and ask you if you want to proceed. However, the vast majority of cases are settled out of court. Don’t delay. Get in touch with us by calling and talking to an expert, on our 24/7 landline free 0800 689 0500, or from your mobile phone on 0333 500 0993.
