When you work for a company and you’re employed on a full or part time basis, it may be possible for you to make a claim against your employer if they cause you to suffer a Fareham accident. However, many people assume that this means that you aren’t able to make a claim at all if you’re self-employed.
Strictly speaking, this isn’t always true. Although you may not have an employer, it is possible that someone or something else could cause you to suffer a Fareham accident, in which case you could make a claim against them.
If, for example, someone caused you to trip or fall whilst you were working, you may be able to obtain compensation from them, providing you can show that you weren’t at fault. Similarly, if a tool or materials cause a Fareham accident to occur, you could potentially make a claim against the manufacturers if they were at fault.
Rather than assuming that you’re not eligible to make a claim after a Fareham accident, you may find that it’s worthwhile to contact a personal injury law firm. Although the expensive fees that some personal injury solicitors charge can put people off seeking help, this isn’t the only way to get legal advice.
If you want to access legal advice following an incident or a Fareham accident, you may not have to pay a penny at all!

The self-employed need to claim for a Fareham Accident
In fact, many people find that making a claim and obtaining compensation actually helps them financially. If you are self-employed you may not receive any form of sick pay if you need to take time off work after the injury. Obtaining compensation can help you to recover the income you’ve lost and can enable you to maintain your lifestyle whilst you recover.
