We don’t arrive at work expecting to be involved in an accident that is not our fault so it comes as a nasty shock when it does happen. As well as trying to cope with the physical symptoms of the injury (which can range from mild to completely life-changing) and the hospital visits to receive treatment, there are often financial worries to contend with.

Claiming compensation for accidents at work – FAQs
Is it too late for me to claim compensation for accident at work injuries that I suffered a while ago?
You can claim for accidents that happened up to three years ago so don’t worry if you have not made a claim straight away.
What will happen when I ring Accident Advice Helpline?
You will be able to take our unique 30-second test which will work out whether a claim for compensation for accidents at work is likely to be successful. The friendly, professional advisers will guide you through it. If you do not wish to continue with the claim you don’t have to as this advice is offered without obligation.
Will I have to pay any money up front?
Accident Advice Helpline’s lawyers work on a no-win, no-fee* basis so you don’t have to worry about expensive legal costs if your claim is not successful. You won’t have to pay anything to start your claim either.
How much compensation do people get for accident at work injuries?
The exact amount of compensation that you will get cannot be guaranteed because every work injury is different and is assessed individually. The amount of time that it takes to pursue the claim also varies. You can rest assured that our solicitors will work very hard to achieve a successful claim for you.
Will I have to make lots of visits to lawyers and doctors?
Claims are handled over the telephone and very few cases actually appear in court. You may need to attend one appointment with a local doctor for a medical assessment. This will be to your advantage and your travel costs can be reimbursed.
So for expert legal advice about a possible claim call Accident Advice Helpline today on 0800 689 0500 from a landline or 0333 500 0993 from a mobile.
