    Compensation Claim in West Wittering


    If you have been injured in an accident at work, then you might want to make a compensation claim in West Wittering. In order to ensure that you have the best possible chance of making a successful compensation claim in West Wittering, there are some things you need to know first.

    Accidents

    One of the key things that any solicitor will need to establish if they are going to win your workplace compensation claim in West Wittering and get you the financial compensation that you deserve is that you have actually been involved in an occupational accident.

    This may take the form of a physical accident which resulted in injury, for example slipping on a wet floor in your place of work, being injured as a result of faulty or poorly fitted machinery or injuring yourself because you have not been trained in your job properly.

    However, a successful compensation claim in West Wittering in the workplace does not just have to relate to physical injuries, but can also be made in relation to industrial diseases and illnesses such as asbestosis, mesothelioma and vibration white finger.

    Responsibility

    Another thing your solicitor will need to establish is that the accident or incident in question was not your fault, but was actually the fault of your employer. All employers have a duty of care to ensure the safety of their employees, and when an employer fails in this duty and an employer is injured or hurt as a result, then that is when a successful compensation claim in West Wittering can be made.

    For example, if you are completing a job but your employer provides the wrong materials or equipment, and this results in you being injured in some way, this would be the fault of your employer. If you develop a disease or illness such as mesothelioma because you have been exposed to asbestos fibres, and your employer did not provide you with suitable personal protection equipment, then they will be regarded as being liable.

    Time limits

    There are certain time limits that are in place when making a personal injury claim, and your solicitor will need to establish that these limits have not expired before helping you to make your compensation claim in West Wittering.

    A personal injury claim must usually be started within three years of the date of the accident or injury occurring. These limits can be extended in the case of industrial illnesses and diseases, as it will usually be a number of years before your symptoms present themselves and a diagnosis is made. You will then have three years from the date of diagnosis in which to initiate your claim.

    How much is your compensation claim in West Wittering worth?

    It is impossible to tell you precisely how much your compensation claim may be worth without knowing all of the facts of the incident, but in order to get a rough idea you can take our online 30-second test.
