Ipswich no win no fee claims for personal injury compensation with Accident Advice Helpline – do you need help deciding to make a claim or not?
Q. I was hurt a few months ago in an accident at work. My employer was not very kind to me and has told me that if I am thinking of claiming compensation then I will be dismissed. This seems so unfair as the accident was not my fault, and they have not been very supportive. Is this true?
Unfortunately, we hear this quite often at Accident Advice Helpline.
Firstly, no employer can dismiss an employee for claiming compensation for a personal injury; this is against the law and you would have grounds for unfair dismissal.
Secondly, your employer has a duty of care to keep all employees safe, thus if the accident could have been avoided by training or risk assessment, then you could have a claim for compensation.
Why not contact us to find out more? The call will be in complete confidence and we do not need to notify your employer unless you decide to make a claim.
Q. My neighbour drove in to my car as I was pulling in to our cul-de-sac. I was quite badly hurt with whiplash and a broken collar bone. Whilst I wouldn’t normally claim compensation, I have been unable to work (I am self-employed), hence money has been really tight. What do you think?
Ipswich no win no fee claims for compensation can sometimes be a hard process to go through, especially when you know the other person, as in this case.
The first thing to point out in this case, like other Ipswich no win no fee claims for compensation is that it will be the other person’s insurance company against whom you would be making the claim; your neighbour will not be out of pocket.
You have been hurt through no fault of your own and, not only that, you have some costs that you need to recuperate and this is one way of doing it. Again, all enquiries are confidential so why not call us to find out more on 0800 689 0500.
Q. I had whiplash from an accident and I won £1,000 but my husband, sometime later, was involved in another accident and he won far more. How come there is such a difference?
Without knowing the full details, it would be unwise to comment or speculate.
Compensation pay outs vary due to the nature of the injury and the impact of it has on the person now and possibly in the future. There is no set amount for certain injuries, but clearly there were variables in this case which meant your husband received more.
