    East Dorset accident claim

    Making an East Dorset, accident claim

    At Accident Advice Helpline we know that there are times when accidents happen without any warning. When these accidents occur, individuals such as you are injured through no fault of your own. If you are injured it could be that you are eligible to make an East Dorset, accident claim. We never make a personal injury claim without your authority so if you contact us, you are under no obligation to continue with the claim making process.

    Most of the people, who contact us do so because the injuries they have suffered were caused in an accident they had no chance of avoiding. Such accidents may have taken place in the workplace, in the street, on the road or in a public meeting place.

    Rest assured though, wherever the accident took place, if you have been the victim of an accident caused by someone else’s carelessness or neglect, we will be able to assist you with your East Dorset, accident claim.

    There was no way I could have avoided the accident

    As the victim of an accident you didn’t cause, your injuries could be severe enough to leave you unable to return to work for some time. As an employee unable to return to work you could find that you are subject to a loss of earning depending on the type of contract you work under.

    The majority of employers employ their staff on full time or part-time contracts with some benefits but there are some who employ their staff on what is known as ‘zero hours contracts’. So-called ‘zero hours contracts’ are such that you are not entitled to holiday pay, sick pay or time off on compassionate grounds. These types of contracts are reserved normally for agency workers or employees of small firms who do not have the money to pay staff if they are unable to work.

    Whilst employed on a ‘zero hours contract’ you would not be entitled to sick pay or statutory sick pay. You could be at risk of losing your job altogether if the period of time you are away, because of your injuries, is considered to be too long. Under these contracts an employer can terminate your contract without penalty and have your position filled by a new staff member. Suddenly you could find yourself without an income because of the actions of someone else.
