There are many places to live and work in North Yorkshire from Scarborough to Richmond, Harrogate to Whitby, Selby to York itself. In these and other towns, villages and beautiful countryside, it’s sadly true that a work-related accident is just as likely to happen here as elsewhere.
Two natural reactions to a North Yorkshire accident at work
If you have slipped or tripped, fallen or suffered a repetitive strain injury, your first reaction when wondering whether you might be entitled to compensation can be to not make a fuss, not wanting to cause your company financial distress. Accident Advice Helpline often hear this and are happy to explain that this isn’t the case. Within the UK, each company must have indemnity insurance in place. All compensation payments then come from the insurer under the terms of this cover.
Secondly, you might look to contact a local North Yorkshire accident at work solicitor for advice. However, there are such a wide variety of situations, including Health and Safety breaches, workplace-related illness and the like, that it usually makes better sense to talk with an acclaimed countrywide company with huge experience of making successful claims. It’s time to contact our team here at Accident Advice Helpline.
The action to take and what happens next
To make first contact, pick up your phone and call 0800 689 0500, or with a mobile 0333 500 0993. You can quickly text “claim365” to 88010. Another option is to fill in the claim compensation box on this page marked “How Much” and we’ll be in touch. Calls are answered every hour of every day throughout the year.
An initial highly confidential, obligation-free discussion with one of our experienced workplace accident law advisor’s will establish the facts of your situation (claims can be handled up to three years after an event, sometimes longer where a disease is involved). We’ll understand what happened, any involvement with your doctor or other medical staff, witnesses to an event – information like that. This will allow one of our experienced claims solicitors to carefully assess your case. Then, should we proceed, of course it’s on a no win no fee basis.
