Accident at work claims can be complex and time consuming, but with the help of Accident Advice Helpline, you can navigate your way through the claims process with the greatest ease. Whether you are intent on making a claim against your employer or need some information to aid your decision, here are five facts you should know about Harrow accident at work claims:
1. You can claim compensation, even if you were partly to blame
If you are partly to blame, you need not rule out the prospect of making a claim. If your employer was 50% to blame for your accident, their insurance company will still have to pay you 50% of the compensation you would have received had your employer been wholly at fault.
You do not have to be 18 or over to make a claim
If you are under the age of 18, you will be able to appoint an adult to make a claim on your behalf. However, if you decide to wait until you are 18, you will have three years, starting from the date of your 18th birthday, in which to make your claim.
2. We will settle your claim in months, not years
The vast majority of the Harrow accident at work claims we deal with settle out of court in months rather than years. However, if you have sustained a serious injury and/or your employer denies causing your accident, it may take us longer to resolve your claim.
3. It is unlikely that you will have to attend court
Even if your employer disputes liability for your accident, we should be able to settle your claim without the need for a full court hearing.
4. You will not have to worry about funding your claim
We take on all viable Harrow accident at work claims on a 100% ‘no win, no fee’ basis, which means that you will not have to worry about meeting the cost of your claim.
5. It is in your interests to hire a specialist solicitor
You would not instruct a painter and decorator to fix your vehicle, so you should not hire a divorce lawyer to deal with your Harrow accident at work claim. If you wish to instruct a specialist to handle your claim, please call our Freephone helpline on 0800 689 0500 or 0333 500 0993 from a mobile phone or use our 30-second test. Our personal injury solicitors, who understand health and safety legislation inside and out, will be able to secure you the compensation you deserve.
