Did you know that the team at Accident Advice Helpline may be able to help you claim compensation for construction site accidents in Bury? On this page, we are going to run you through absolutely everything that you need to know about making a successful compensation claim through us.
Were you injured?
As Accident Advice Helpline is a personal injury law firm, we can only provide assistance with construction site accidents in Bury if you are able to supply us with proof of your injuries. This means that you will need to supply us with a medical report. If you can’t do that, we can’t help you out.
It is worth noting that the severity of your injuries will not matter all that much with regards to the viability of your claim. All we ask is that the injuries you are suffering from have had an impact on your life i.e. they are more than just a small cut. The severity of your injuries will have an impact on the amount of compensation that you are entitled to.
When did the incident occur?
Generally speaking, you will only be able to claim compensation within three years of the date of the incident. The only exception to this rule is if you are suffering from an industrial disease e.g. if you have been exposed to asbestos.
The team at Accident Advice Helpline try to make it as easy as possible for you to claim compensation. For starters; we are able to handle the vast majority of compensation claims over the telephone. It is very rare that your case will need to go to court. This means that you can start the compensation claim from the comfort of your own home whilst you are still recovering from your injuries.
Who is to blame for the incident?
This is the part where your case is made or broken. You are going to need to provide us with evidence that shows that somebody else is to blame for the injuries that you are suffering from. This, essentially, means that you will need to demonstrate that your employer is at fault. If you are the cause of your own injuries, you will not be able to claim compensation.
In the vast majority of cases, injuries suffered in the workplace are due to incorrect safety training, improper safety equipment, or a general lack of health and safety on the site. Our team here at Accident Advice Helpline will aid you in gathering all of the evidence that you need in order to put together a successful compensation claim.
