Making a claim for an injury
If you have had an accident at work then you might want to consider whether you have a claim for compensation. Not everyone realises that they could be entitled to a financial payout if they are injured at work, but you could well be! Of course you might not have the skills to progress a claim yourself, which is where an experienced solicitor in St Marys could be the answer to your prayers.
Proving you have a claim
If you have been injured then you’ll obviously need to have some evidence of this before you can make a claim. You can use your medical records for this – you’ll need to have had to seek medical help if you want to be able to make a claim for financial compensation. If anyone witnessed your accident then their statements can also help, as well as photos of any dangerous areas which contributed to your injury.
Knowing whether you can make a claim
To make a claim you will need to have had your accident within the past 3 years, in most cases. When you contact an experienced solicitor in St Marys they’ll go through the details of your accident to see whether you could indeed be in a position to make a claim. To make a claim your employer must also be to blame in some way – for example a lack of training or not providing the right safety equipment for you to carry out a task.
