Have you had an injury in work? Have you had a trip, slip or fall in a public area? Have you had a road accident?
If you have had an injury that wasn’t your fault, you may be able to make an injury claim in West Tanfield. Accident Advice Helpline offers a free compensation calculator, known as the ‘30 second test’ and by using it, you may be able to work out how much compensation you could be entitled to. Claim amounts cannot be guaranteed, you can only be given estimates of what your claim might be worth. Claim times vary from one case to another. A medical may be required but it is not always necessary. In most cases, clients do not need to attend court.
Claim amounts will be made up of a payment for the injury and reimbursement of expenses such as travel costs, prescription charges, child care, home help and loss of earnings. The claims have to be made within 3 years, although this time limit can be extended in the case where the victim was a minor or in the case of industrial diseases. Most claims can be processed by telephone. If you have any questions you can call our staff any day of the week, or any time of the day and we will always try and help you straight away. If we can’t, we won’t keep you hanging on, instead we will call you back.
Have you had an injury in work? Have you had a trip, slip or fall in a public area? Have you had a road accident? An accident that wasn’t your fault? Then start your injury claim in West Tanfield now.
Work related accidents are covered too!
Employers are responsible for your health and safety at work and so are obliged to carry out risk assessments, provide health and safety training and, where applicable, provide workers with protective equipment. This can take the form of a helmet, a pair of safety goggles or something as small as earplugs.
If you’ve had an accident at work or developed a disease as a result of poor working conditions, you could be entitled to make an injury claim in West Tanfield for compensation. Remember, any compensation awarded to you will not come directly from your employer, but from their public liability insurance (every employer has to have this insurance policy by law). You cannot be dismissed for making a personal injury claim against your employer.
