Do you think you need a lawyer in Porth?
If you have been injured in an accident that you can prove was no fault of your, you may be forgiven for thinking that you need the services of a lawyer in Porth to help you. However, these days you don’t need a local lawyer to help you with a personal injury compensation claim. Instead of looking for a lawyer in Porth, call us at Accident Advice Helpline.
We can usually deal with claims over the phone, so you probably wont have to see a solicitor face to face, and perhaps you won’t have to go to court to have your claim settled.
Accidents at work
Whether you work in a retail outlet, school or factory, there is always a risk that you will become involved in an accident at work.
While all employers have a legal and moral obligation to protect their employees from accidents at work, some fail to implement safe systems of work and provide adequate supervision and training.
If you have suffered an accident at work, you may be entitled to claim compensation. To support your claim, you should write down the details of your accident and log it in your employer’s accident book.
You should also take photographs of the accident scene if yo are able to. If there were any witnesses to your accident, you should take down their details for future reference.
You should also visit your GP’s surgery or local A&E department so that a doctor can make a record of your injury in your medical notes.
Want to make a claim?
If you wish to make a claim, the legal team here at Accident Advice Helpline can help. Our personal injury lawyers have vast experience in dealing with a wide range of accident claims, including:
• Manual handling claims
• Claims for falls from heights
• Repetitive strain injury claims
• Post-traumatic stress claims
• Fork lift truck accident claims
• Scaffolding accident claims
If you have a case for compensation, and you are happy to proceed with your claim, we will match you up with an experienced accident lawyer who will send a formal Letter of Claim to your employer’s insurance company, granting them three months in which to accept or deny liability.
If your employer accepts liability, your accident lawyer will arrange for you to undergo a medical examination. Following determining the value of your compensation settlement, your lawyer will then enter into negotiations with your employer’s insurance company, and when both parties have agreed upon a compensation settlement, you will receive a cheque for the full amount.
We do not have a personal injury lawyer in Porth working directly for us but this doesn’t matter, we can still help you claim as we are a national injury law firm that covers all areas of the UK. So if you need a personal injury lawyer in Porth or anywhere else, make us your first point of call.
