Accidents in the workplace will always occur from time to time, but it is the duty of your employer to minimise the risks as far as possible to keep the number of accidents to a minimum. If your employer fails to provide you with a safe working environment, and you suffer a Knowsley accident at work, you will be able to make a 100% ‘no win, no fee’ claim for compensation through the experienced personal injury solicitors here at Accident Advice Helpline.
Recouping your losses after a Knowsley accident at work
The purpose of a compensation claim is to help you to recoup the financial losses you incur as a result of your accident at work. These may include:
- Travel expenses
If, as a result of your accident, you need to travel to the hospital or doctor’s surgery, you will be able to recoup the cost of your journey through your claim. If you travel by car, you will need to keep a note of the distance, as this will allow you to claim a mileage rate for your journey, while if you travel by public transport, you will need to keep your receipts and tickets.
- Damaged personal possessions
If you damage any personal possessions in your Knowsley accident at work, you will be able to claim for the cost of replacing these items. However, you will need to supply evidence of their worth.
- Lost earnings
If you need to take time off work because of your injuries, you may suffer a loss of earnings. If you wish to recoup the cost of these through your claim, you will need to provide wage slips and bank statements detailing your lost earnings.
- Medical expenses
If you incur private medical treatment charges following your accident, you will need a medical specialist to agree that the treatments were essential to your recovery. You will also need to supply receipts and medical reports.
The sooner you instruct us to commence your claim, the sooner you will be able to restore your financial position. At Accident Advice Helpline, our solicitors have a wealth of experience when it comes to winning Knowsley accident at work claims, and they will not settle your case for less than you deserve.
