North Dorset accident at work


If an accident at work suddenly disrupted your life, would you know what do to? If your employer or a work colleague was to blame for the accident, you would deserve to receive full compensation for your injuries and financial losses. However, if you decided to go down this route, you would have to be careful not to jeopardise your compensation claim.

Five mistakes to avoid in the event of a North Dorset accident at work

  1. Not seeking medical care
    In the immediate aftermath of an accident at work, you would need to seek immediate medical attention either by calling for an ambulance or visiting your local hospital’s A&E department. You should never attempt to assess the severity of your own injuries, and never make them out to be less serious than they really are.
  2. Failing to follow medical advice
    When you visit the hospital for an assessment for your injuries, you must follow any advice you receive. If you miss medical appointments or fail to follow your recommended treatment regime, you will reduce the value of your North Dorset accident at work claim.
  3. Admitting fault
    Some injury victims make the mistake of immediately apologising for their North Dorset accident at work only to realise later on that the accident was caused by the fault of their employer. If you are required to discuss your accident with your employer, call Accident Advice Helpline and speak to one of our personal injury lawyers to receive advice on protecting your legal rights.
  4. Settling without a lawyer
    You may receive an early settlement offer from your employer’s insurance company. However, you should never agree to such an offer without first speaking to one of our trained claims advisors or using our 30-second test. If you accept an early offer and your recovery takes longer than you initially expected, you may find yourself out of pocket.

With or without a specialist personal injury lawyer, you may encounter a range of pitfalls on your way to obtaining the compensation you deserve. By calling our Freephone helpline and hiring the help of a 100% no win, no fee* expert, you will greatly increase your chances of winning your North Dorset accident at work claim.
