Accident Advice Helpline has processed claims for personal injury for over 15 years. We make claims where individuals have acted negligently and caused injury to someone else, but we also take action against organisations and local authorities. So let’s take a look at why you might need to make a limited company personal injury claim.
Slip, trip and fall incidents
Accidents that can result in action being taken against a limited company include slips, trips and falls in a public space, such as a supermarket. The company as a whole would be responsible for their customers’ health and safety when shopping in-store.
Accidents on public transport
Accidents on buses, coaches and trains are common, but it is not always the driver or other members of staff who are to blame. If the vehicle itself has not been adequately maintained by the company, they may face court action by people injured as a consequence.
External equipment used in relation to the vehicle, such as rail tracks or overhead lines, will also be the responsibility of a limited company or other organisation.
Eligibility to claim with Accident Advice Helpline
You may be able to make a limited company personal injury claim if you meet the following three criteria:
- The accident happened within the last three years
- You were not to blame
- Your injuries were treated by a medical professional
Public transport accidents often involve numerous victims, and these cases can be complex. It is vital to have the support of an experienced law firm that you can trust, with specialist solicitors to negotiate on your behalf.
How to start a limited company personal injury claim
To start a claim like this you just need to phone our helpline team. We’ll confirm your eligibility and make sure you understand all that claiming entails. We can also provide you with an estimate of the compensation to help you decide whether it’s going to be worthwhile from a financial perspective.
You can also claim no win, no fee with us. This offers some protection to your personal finances, and also provides peace of mind. If you decide to pursue a claim, we’ll put you in touch with one of our legal experts who can discuss your case further.
There may be a requirement to have one more medical assessment, and this sometimes depends on when the accident happened. If it was a long time ago, a fresh medical view can support your solicitor’s negotiations.
