“I slipped and fell when I was at work. As a result, I now have a broken ankle and I’m off sick. Can I claim compensation?”
Provided your injury was someone else’s fault, yes! It looks like your employer failed to ensure its employees’ safety in the workplace, so you could make a claim. You will be pleased to know that finding a solicitor in Banstead is easy with Accident Advice Helpline.

This is why we have grown to become one of the UK’s largest law firms.
Do I have to call you straight away?
It’s certainly a good idea to act quickly, because there is a three year deadline to make a claim, from the date of your accident. This is extended if you were a minor when it happened, or if you have an industrial disease.
Is there anything I need to have ready if I want to claim through a solicitor in Banstead?
It would assist your solicitor if you have everything relevant filed away. Make sure you keep records of the medical treatment you’re having for your injury, and file receipts, too! When you have an injury, you could need to pay for childcare or a home help, and if you can’t drive your car, you will probably have to pay for public transport. Keep all the receipts for these.
When you receive your payment, part of it will be reimbursement of expenses. The other part will be a payment for the injury itself.
If you want an estimate of the amount you may receive, try our 30 second test. This is a free compensation calculator on our website.
Do I need to go to court?
It’s unlikely that you will have to attend court – most claims can be processed over the telephone by your 100% ‘no win, no fee’ lawyer. You may need to attend one additional medical assessment, however.
