    "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

    Lawyer in Hardwick


    Problems with finding a lawyer in Hardwick?

    You may think that you should give up on the idea of making a personal injury compensation claim simply because there isn’t a lawyer in Hardwick to represent you. However, this would be rather foolhardy, as you should claim the compensation you so richly deserve, if you have been injured in an accident that was not your fault.

    To speak with a lawyer in Hardwick in the comfort of your own home, just call us at Accident Advice Helpline. We can deal with most claims over the phone, thus dispensing of the need to hire a lawyer in Hardwick.

    I think work made me ill!

    There are two reasons why some people who use our legal services think that work has made them ill:

    1. Physical illnesses such as one of the 49 recognised industrial diseases, including those linked to asbestosis, vibration white finger and industrial asthma to name just three illnesses
    2. Emotional illnesses such as stress and harassment

    Is it easy to make a claim for compensation when work has made you ill?

    Claiming compensation with our expert lawyers is easy, in the sense that we take the mystery and complexity out of the process of making a claim BUT, proving that work has made you ill can be a little more difficult.

    If you call us at Accident Advice Helpline, be prepared to tell us the following.

    Open Claim Calculator

    • When the issues with your health started
    • When you told your employer
    • What they have done to help
    • What you have tried to do to help resolve the situation

    But, with all compensation claims, there are some ‘basics’ that need meeting and these still apply to claims being made in relation to work-based illnesses, both emotional and physical.

    The Compensation Basics

    You must make your claim within 3 years of the date of your accident or, in the case of emotional distress, since it all began. Anything outside of this date will, unfortunately, render your claim ineligible.

    You must also not have been responsible for your accident, or the events that led to your ill-health; it may be that you feel your employer is liable for your emotional distress as they  contributed to it.

    And finally, you must also have sought medical advice and treatment for your ill-health. Some people may, for example, have needed counselling, or other mental health service for their distress and emotional health. Again, as difficult as it may be, you do need to have this conversation with your legal team as they will need this information.
