Being injured in the workplace in Warwick can be extremely traumatic. You may feel as though the world is against you, or that there’s little you can do to right this wrong.
We’ve experienced these feelings before from our clients. But, there is light and the end of the tunnel – you can claim compensation for your injuries and any financial hardship as a result of your injuries. The law states that if you have been injured in an accident that was not your fault, then you are legally entitled to make a claim for financial compensation. What we specialise in is helping people to successfully make that claim.
Call our 24/7 Helpline on 0800 689 0500 or from your mobile on 0333 500 0993 to find out more today. At the end of this line are highly trained claims advisors who will help you to understand your rights and answer all of your claims-related questions after being injured in the workplace in Warwick.
I’m worried about making a claim. Will it affect my employment?
There is no guarantee that making a claim against your employer will not result in some form of reprisal. However, should you experience any, then the law protects you – it is illegal for an employer to unfairly dismiss or punish an employee, and doing either of these as a result of you making a claim leaves grounds for a lawsuit.
My employer is no longer in business. Can I make a claim?
Yes, you can – your employer should have had employers’ liability insurance at the time of your accident and you can make a claim with these insurers. All you will need to do is prove that your accident happened, and that your employer was at fault. That’s where an experienced solicitor who has handled many accident at work in Warwick cases before will be extremely valuable. Our solicitors, for example, have worked on many cases involving businesses that have gone bust or otherwise out of business successfully.
How long will the claims process take?
It’s impossible for us to give you an exact timeframe for claim completion, however in general claims take 8 – 12 months to complete. Some take a little less and some take a little more. Where they take more, it’s usually because liability is contested by the other side or because the claim value is contested. Either way, your solicitor will work hard to resolve it.
