What you need to know about claiming compensation for an accident at work
If you have suffered an accident at work as a result of your employer’s negligence in ensuring that your work environment is safe, you may wish to seek compensation with a lawyer in Spennymoor. Many people are unaware of what is required to make a claim, as well as the process itself. This article will give you more information about making a claim, as well as where you can go to find help.
Eligibility for compensation
Before being able to make a personal injury claim, it will need to be decided whether or not you are eligible to proceed. Some of the main criteria include that the accident took place in the last three years and that it was someone else’s fault. In cases involving industrial diseases you may have more time to claim, and should discuss this in more detail with a lawyer in Spennymoor.
What you can claim for
As well as claiming compensation for the injuries themselves, you may also be able to claim for other costs such as a loss of earnings through being unable to work, private medical costs, care costs involved with taking care of children or relatives, and other costs which have left you out of pocket as a result of your accident.
