If you’ve been involved in a workplace accident and money is a little tight, you’ll be glad to hear you can use no win no fee* for compensation in Lichfield. This means that you don’t have to pay any money until your claim for personal injury compensation has been successfully concluded. If for any reason your claim is unsuccessful, then Accident Advice Helpline will not charge you any legal fees.
Am I eligible to claim?
If you have been injured at work in the last three years then there is a good chance you have the right to seek justice for any injuries sustained. The criteria to being eligible to make a claim are as follows:
- The accident must have happened within the last three years
- You must have required medical attention after the accident
- The accident must have been the fault of someone else
The last one in this list is often the reason many people do not claim. They either think no one is to blame, or they are worried about getting someone into trouble. The truth of the matter is why should you suffer for someone else’s negligence. Your employer has a legal obligation to provide a safe working environment for every employee. Failure to do so leaves them open to a personal injury claim.
Your employer doesn’t actually pay the compensation. It is a requirement of law for them to have liability insurances in place. The insurance company will deal with the case, and your employer will have very little involvement. It is also illegal for your employer to treat you any differently if you return to work. The vast majority of people that make claims and return to work don’t notice any difference in the workplace attitude towards them.
What sort of injuries can I claim for?
You can claim for any injuries sustained by an accident that wasn’t your fault. It could be a slip, trip or fall, an accident involving machinery or even a company vehicle. If it happened on work time and using their equipment, then there’s a good chance you can claim.
