Lewisham claims for accidents can occur for a number of reasons. Amongst the most common are claims for accidents at work. People may be concerned about making a claim for a workplace accident, because of fears of falling out with their employers. However, making a claim could be your only way to compensate your loss of earnings.

Lewisham claims for accidents at work
Being eligible to claim
In order to be eligible to claim compensation, you need to be able to prove that the accident caused the injuries you are suffering. If at work you have suffered a loss of hearing, repetitive strain injury or perhaps an industrial disease, you will need to have proof from your doctor that it was caused at work before being able to make a claim.
The other necessary criteria are that the accident must have occurred within the last three years, and it must have been the result of your employer’s negligence.
Making your claim
Making your claim is simple with Accident Advice Helpline, as we handle the entire claims process on your behalf once you decide to proceed. We’ve handled thousands of work compensation claims in the past and are able to offer the right advice and information to help you with your claim. We ensure that there are no forms to fill in, as well as an unlikely chance that you’ll have to go to court thanks to most claims being processed by phone.
It is the law that employers take out indemnity insurance, which is there to cover compensation claims for injuries at work, meaning the money won’t come directly from the company’s finances. Should you face difficulty following your claim from your employer, you may want to raise the issue with HR, or in the case of a dismissal seek further legal help.
