    "If you've been injured through no fault of your own you could be entitled to compensation. If you're unsure if you could claim, I recommend you call Accident Advice Helpline."

    Greater London accident at work


    If you have been injured in a Greater London accident at work caused by your employer’s actions, you have a right to claim compensation from your employer’s insurance company. Your employer has failed to protect your health and safety, and you should not feel ashamed to seek access to justice. Your claim will not only provide you with the money you need to support a fast and full recovery, but draw attention to the cause of your injury so that your employer can protect others from harm.

    How long will the claims process take?

    At Accident Advice Helpline, our personal injury solicitors will aim to resolve your Greater London accident at work claim as quickly and efficiently as possible. If your claim is simple, they should be able to provide you with your compensation settlement in a few months’ time, but if it is more complex, you may have to wait a little longer.

    Will I have to go to court?

    The idea of standing up in court and giving evidence against your employer may seem daunting, but it is important to realise that only a small number of the claims we handle end up in court. In our experience, the vast majority of insurance companies choose to settle claims at an early stage rather than pay out for a full court hearing. If your employer’s insurance company refuses to provide you with a suitable compensation settlement, we may need to instruct a court judge to settle your case on our behalf. The judge’s ruling will be final and your employer’s insurance company will have to abide by the decision.

    Am I too late to make a Greater London accident at work claim?

    To make a claim, your Greater London accident at work must have happened within the last three years, and your employer must have been at least partly to blame. If you fail to start your claim within this time frame, your claim may become time-barred, which means that you may lose your right to receive compensation.

    If you are ready to make your claim, please do not delay in contacting us. Simply call our Freephone helpline on 0800 689 0500 or 0333 500 0993 from a mobile phone or, if it is easier, provide us with your details via our 30-second test and we will call you back.
