If you have hurt at work in Warrington in an accident which you believe that your employer was at fault for, you may be in an excellent position to make a compensation claim against them for your injuries. It is up to you to decide whether you want to make your claim using an injury lawyer, or if you want to make your claim on your own, but for many people the cost of personal injury solicitors in Warrington will be a deciding factor.
If you make a claim on your own then you won’t have to pay any lawyer’s fees, meaning that you will get 100% of the compensation awarded to you. However, using an injury lawyer means that you are more likely to get the compensation that you want. Here are some of the reasons you should choose an injury lawyer over making the claim yourself when you have been hurt at work in Warrington.
Your employer is likely to respond better
Your employer has a degree of power over you because you are their employee, even if they were at fault for your accident. The best way to bypass this and ensure that they treat the situation seriously and offer you the respect that you deserve is to work with an injury lawyer who will offer proceedings a level of legitimacy and legality.
This should force your employer to take you seriously and respond quickly and with care.
An injury lawyer knows the process better
Although you can read up about making a compensation claim and work out how best to go about it, the best way for you to make your claim properly is always going to be to work with someone for whom compensation is their entire job.
Get in touch if you have been hurt at work in Warrington
