    Derby accident at work claim


    Accidents can happen in any type of job, to anyone at any time. If the accident was not the fault of the victim, they could be entitled to make a Derby accident at work claim, but usually there are few questions they would like answered first.

    The questions sometimes asked by victims when they are making a Derby accident at work claim include such things as:

    • Who can make a claim?
    • Is there a time limit?
    • How much will I get?
    • How long will it take?
    • Can my boss fire me?
    • Will workmates lose their jobs?

    The are just a few of the questions our expert claims advisers are asked, when victims phone our freephone helpline on 0800 689 0500 or 0333 500 0993 from a mobile phone, to get the information they need to decide if they want to pursue a Derby accident at work claim.

    Is there a time limit?

    For most accidents the time limit for making a Derby accident at work claim is three years. There are a few exceptions to this rule, which the friendly advisers at Accident Advice Helpline will explain if you want to know more.

    How much will I get?

    No one knows until the final settlement is agreed, and the best we can do is give you an estimate based on previous awards. You can get this by completing the 30-second test on our website.

    How long will it take?

    You might as well ask how long is a piece of string, because the answer will be the same – you don’t know till you get to the end. No one can guarantee how long a claim will take, but we can assure you that we will deal with it as quickly and efficiently as possible.

    Can my boss fire me?

    It is illegal for you boss to fire you just because you have made a accident at work claim against them, and they could have to face an industrial tribunal if the behave in this way.

    Will workmates lose their job?

    Do not worry about workmates losing their jobs, most employers legally have to buy employers liability insurance and this will settle your claim. The ones exempt from this insurance are mainly government departments who pay compensation claims out of their own funds.
