If you are consider claiming for an East Hertfordshire accident at work, you must go through all the correct channels or you could seriously jeopardise your claim. Hiring the assistance of an Accident Advice Helpline solicitor will help you to improve your chances of successfully claiming the compensation you require, without damaging your relationship with your boss.
How our East Hampshire accident at work specialists can help you
When you contact us about your claim, we will look into the circumstances of your accident and determine whether we would be able to prove that your personal injury was caused by the carelessness of your employer. The main evidence that we will require to prove your case will come from:
• Your medical records
• CCTV footage
• Photographs of the cause of the accident
• Photographs of your injuries
• Accident book entries revealing a pattern of similar accidents at work
If necessary, we may also be able to instruct a qualified health and safety expert to inspect your workplace and any machinery you were using at the time of your accident.
Following assessing your claim, we will be able to advise you on the size of the compensation settlement you should strive to receive. If your employer or their insurer makes you an early settlement offer, we will therefore be able to advise you on its suitability and, if necessary, negotiate a higher settlement on your behalf. Almost all employers in East Hertfordshire are required to possess insurance to cover any accident at work claims that might be made against them. This means that we will usually correspond not with your employer but with your employer’s insurance company.
