    "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."

    Esther Rantzen

    Injury lawyer in Crook


    If you have been injured whilst working on a building or construction site, then you might be entitled to make a compensation claim with an injury lawyer in Crook.

    To find out if you are eligible to make a claim against your employer you can take our 30-second test.  By answering a few simple questions about your accident and the injuries you have suffered as a result, we can tell you if you have a case to make.  The compensation calculator will also tell you how much your claim might be worth.

    Alternatively, you can contact us directly and speak to an injury lawyer who will be able to provide you with more information about the claims process.

    How an injury lawyer in Crook can help you

    If you have been injured at work then an injury lawyer can help you make a compensation claim.  They will be on hand to answer any queries you might have about the claims process, and to provide you with any advice, guidance and reassurance you might need whilst your claim is being considered.  They will also be able to provide you with their expert opinion on whether they think the amount of compensation you are being offered is suitable considering the nature of your injuries.

    Types of Accidents

    Regardless of your profession, if you work on building or construction sites, you will be well aware that they can be dangerous places.  People are advised to wear hard hats and other forms of personal protection equipment for a reason.  Your injury lawyer will also know this, but will equally be aware that unfortunately, even when some of the most basic precautions are taken, accidents do still happen.

    Open Claim Calculator

    For example, your injury lawyer will no doubt have worked on cases involving defective scaffolding.  You might be at the top of a scaffolding tower, and because it has not been assembled correctly, or safety checked prior to use, it might collapse under your weight.  Even a relatively small fall (less than 6 feet) can cause severe damage to the body including bruises, cuts, grazes and broken bones.  In such a situation your injury lawyer in Crook will be able to assess who is responsible for the accident, and will assist you in making a compensation claim against them, or if it is your employer, against their insurance company.

    Liability

    The most important factor an injury lawyer in Crook must consider when looking at your case is whether someone else can be regarded as being liable or responsible for the accident that you have been involved in.  The important thing to consider is whether or not the accident was your fault, if not, then it is up to the injury lawyer in Crook to ascertain whose fault it was, and make a claim against them.  Usually when it comes to work based accidents the liability will lie with your employer.
