For people who have had a Leicestershire accident at work and are wondering if they can claim compensation, here at Accident Advice Helpline, we’ve prepared a brief guide about what you need to know and to see if you’re eligible to claim.
Accidents at work happen all the time and result in minor and serious injuries, from something as relatively common as putting your back out by lifting heavy objects to repetitive strain injury, industrial diseases and many more. Some work environments are inherently more dangerous than others – such as construction sites, for example – but even in apparently safe workplaces, like offices, people can become injured in an accident.
Making a Leicestershire accident at work claim
Whatever the nature of the injury you received in your Leicestershire accident at work, you may be able to claim compensation – it’s your legal right under the law, and your company is bound by law to have insurance in place to cover workplace accidents and compensation payouts. If you’ve had medical attention and are perhaps having ongoing treatment, we’ll need to see a medical report to decide how to proceed, so please have one available.
There’s a time limit of three years from the time of your accident for making a claim, but it can be extended in some cases. It will be helpful to your case if any witnesses can make supporting statements. You can find out straight away if you’re eligible to claim by taking the 30-Second Test on this website, and it will also give you a guide to compensation amounts.
