The village of Whitwell in Derbyshire has a history that dates back to Anglo-Saxon times and around 3,900 people lived here in 2011. It also once held the record for the highest number of pubs per capita – once there were 11 pubs in this tiny village, today there are significantly fewer, although there are still 6. If you’ve been injured in an accident here and you’re searching for a lawyer in Whitwell, don’t despair. You could always just get in touch with a personal injury law firm that covers the whole of the UK, like Accident Advice Helpline. Our lawyers have been helping members of the public since 2000, and we’re here to make sure you get the compensation you’re entitled to after your accident.
Were you injured at work?
Most of us go to work each day without much thought for our personal safety. If you don’t work in a traditionally ‘dangerous’ job – for example, if you’re employed in a shop or an office – then you may not think that you are at risk of being injured in a workplace accident. But accidents at work have the potential to happen anywhere, at any time, and if this has happened to you then you might be able to claim compensation. Rather than hiring a lawyer in Whitwell, you can get in touch with Accident Advice Helpline to see if you have a viable claim, provided it has been three years or less since your accident.
You don’t need a lawyer in Whitwell to get compensation for a workplace accident
You might have been injured while working in a factory or warehouse, on a construction site, in a public place such as a shop or library or even in an office. Accident Advice Helpline has handled claims for injuries ranging from minor cuts, bruises and broken bones to life-changing electric shock injuries and head injuries. It’s up to your employer to keep you safe at work, and if they have failed to do so, you could have a viable claim. For example, if you have tripped over trailing cables in an office, your employer should have taken steps to ensure this didn’t happen. If a faulty ladder in a stock room caused you to fall, your employer should have checked that the ladder was safe to use. Accident Advice Helpline could help you to claim compensation for your pain, suffering and loss of earnings.
Compensation for financial losses
If you’re struggling financially after your accident, we can help you to claim compensation for your lost wages while you’re off work recovering. You could also claim for expenses such as travel to and from medical appointments, so keep all your receipts. To find out more about making a claim, call us on 0800 689 0500 or 0333 500 0993 to find out if you could be eligible. It’s free to call us from a landline and you can get no-obligation advice, however you’ve been injured and wherever you work, so you have nothing to lose.
