    Musselburgh accident at work

    Personal Injury Solicitors in Musselburgh

    It is natural to feel a bit overwhelmed after an accident at work in Musselburgh. Your first instinct may be to try to minimise the seriousness of the situation, but you may end up aggravating any injuries you have sustained.

    Seeking medical attention after a Musselburgh accident at work

    The signs and symptoms of a personal injury can occur immediately after an accident or several days later. Therefore, if you think you may have sustained an injury, see a doctor as soon as possible.

    While you are waiting to see a doctor, take photographs of any bruises, cuts, scrapes and other visible injuries. If there is a problem with your Musselburgh accident at work claim, you will be able to use these photos as evidence. Do not worry if you do not have a professional camera to hand – low quality pictures are better than no pictures at all.

    When you see a doctor, tell him or her about your accident and give a full account of your symptoms, even if they do not seem relevant. A doctor’s evaluation of your injuries will help strengthen your compensation claim.

    Avoiding mishaps after a Musselburgh accident at work

    Once you have sought medical attention for your injuries, return to your workplace to update your employer on your condition. You may be inclined to apologise for your accident, but doing so may seriously jeopardise your claim.

    Even if you believe you might have been partly to blame, do not admit this to your employer. Instead, provide an honest account of the facts and let the team here at the Accident Advice Helpline assist you in apportioning the blame. Our trained claims advisors have extensive experience of assessing Musselburgh accident at work claims and they will be able to examine your case and determine your right to receive compensation.

    If we believe that you have a strong claim, we will monitor your recovery and help you to settle your claim as quickly as possible. It is important to realise, however, that if your injuries are serious, your claim may take some time to settle. This is because we will need to wait until a doctor can confidently report on your prognosis. If this is the case, we will make every effort to ensure that you receive periodical payments of compensation, known as interim payments, while you wait for your claim to settle.
