Accidents have the potential to happen anywhere, at any time. You could trip on uneven pavement outside your house and break your ankle. You could be hit by objects falling from scaffolding at work on a construction site, suffering head or spinal injuries. You could even suffer food poisoning after ordering a Chinese takeaway for a relaxing night in. In all these cases, you could find you’re able to make a claim for personal injury compensation, and that means you’ll be needing the services of a personal injury lawyer for an accident claim.
Finding a lawyer for an accident can be tricky though, as you want to ensure you choose a specialist firm with experience handling personal injury claims (and a great track record of success). Accident Advice Helpline has been in the industry for over 16 years, and we’re confident we can get you the compensation you are entitled to, however you have been injured.
What happens when you contact a lawyer for an accident at work?
If you’ve been injured in an accident at work, you’re probably worried about a number of things, such as losing your job if you make a claim, and how you’ll manage financially if you need to take time off work to recover. The good news is that there are laws in place to protect you should you decide to make a personal injury claim. Contacting a lawyer for an accident at work means you can find out if you have a viable claim, and if you do and your claim is successful, your employer’s liability insurance company will pay, so they won’t be left out of pocket as a result of your claim.
You could find you’re eligible to make a claim for almost any type of injury, provided your accident was somebody else’s fault. So whether you have suffered a back injury after slipping on a wet floor in a shop or suffered repetitive strain injury from your fast-paced factory job, you can get in touch with Accident Advice Helpline.
How much compensation could you get?
Because there are so many different types of injuries which could be sustained, and every claim is processed individually, it’s almost impossible for us to say how much compensation you could be entitled to. The good news is that you can use the 30-second calculator on our website for an idea of what you could receive, if your claim is successful. Then give us a call on 0800 689 0500 (or 0333 500 0993 from a mobile) and we’ll be able to talk you through what happens next – the claims process is less complex than you might have expected, so give us a call today.
