FAQs about seeking compensation after a workplace accident
Do you have questions about working with an experienced accident solicitor in Motherwell?
If you have been hurt at work, you may well have a number of queries regarding your rights when it comes to making a claim. While a local law firm may require you to attend a formal consultation, at Accident Advice Helpline we’re here to help you make sense of making claims without having to come into any offices at all. Here, we answer some of the most common questions we’re asked about compensation:
How do I know if I can make a claim after being injured at work?
In order to make a claim, your accident must have occurred as a result of someone else’s negligence. Your employer has a legal obligation to ensure your health and safety at work, and if they fail to adhere to legislation or demonstrate proper duty of care and you are injured as a result, you should hold them responsible. You could be within your rights to make a claim, as long as the injury took place within the past three years.
What does No Win No Fee* mean?
While another law firm may require you to pay a certain percentage of fees upfront, at Accident Advice Helpline, we undertake cases on a No Win No Fee* basis. This means you don’t have to pay anything to start your claim, making our expert lawyers the affordable choice for everyone.
How much can my workplace injury lawyer help me receive?
The amount awarded varies greatly from case to case, but for many it can amount to hundreds if not thousands of pounds. The quickest way to find out how much you could be entitled to is to fill in our thirty-second claims calculator, however, you can also call our helpline to have your case assessed by an experienced claims adviser too.
