    Find a personal injury lawyer in Old Leake


    Work is very important in our society. Most of us spend about a third of our day there, five days a week, to earn a living and pay the bills.

    When you have an accident and get a personal injury, it could mean that you have to take time off work or – if it is a severe injury – stop working altogether.

    In the workplace itself, there is always the potential to have an accident. To be sure, many accidents are just that: genuine, no-fault accidents. But what if your accident has happened as a direct result of your employer’s negligence?

    The law states that employers are responsible for their employees’ health and safety, and there are many regulations in place to ensure that they carry out their duty. If they don’t, and an employee is injured, the employee has a legal right to claim compensation.

    When should I make a claim with a personal injury lawyer in Old Leake?

    You should pursue your claim as soon as you possibly can, because there is a three-year limit.

    However, for some work related injuries, there is an extension to the deadline. Industrial diseases are those which are caused by your occupation. Examples include industrial deafness, mesothelioma, and vibration white finger. The time limitation rule is relaxed in these cases because the exact time the injury occurred cannot be determined.

    What do I do next?

    Call us on 0800 689 0500, or, if you are on a mobile phone, 0333 500 0993. You may also text “claim365” to 80100.

    It doesn’t matter when you call, either. Our helpline is staffed by a team of fully trained, professional advisors who will treat you with courtesy and empathy. Whatever you tell them will be treated confidentially.

    What evidence do I need?

    When you pursue a claim with a personal injury lawyer in Old Leake, it is a good idea to have as much evidence as possible. Photographic evidence is highly valuable – get as many pictures of the scene of your work accident as possible, as well as of your injury.

    Also keep receipts for any expenses incurred. These can be for childcare, for travel, or for a home help. If it costs you money, file away the receipt.

    What is the compensation made up of?

    The claim amount comprises a payment for the actual injury, and reimbursement for the costs incurred. That’s why it is especially important to keep all your receipts.

    Can you guarantee the amount of compensation I will get?

    The short answer is: “No”. This is because every claim is different. We can, however, give you an estimate of what you are likely to receive. You can find out yourself using our free compensation calculator, or “30 second test”, available on our website.

    Please note that our lawyers all work on a 100% no win no fee basis, too!
