If you have had an accident at work then you may want be interested to know that you can claim compensation for the injuries you have suffered. This is especially the case if the accident itself was not your fault.
In order to find out whether or not you are entitled to make a claim for a Nottinghamshire accident you can take Accident Advice Helpline’s 30 second test which will not only test your eligibility, but will give you an indication as to how much financial compensation our Nottinghamshire accident solicitors might be able to win on your behalf.
Claiming for a Nottinghamshire accident
The truth is you do not have to use an accident solicitor to make a claim for compensation. Legally speaking you can complete all the paperwork and other information yourself; however, this is time consuming, especially if you do not know what you are doing, and there is a good chance you may miss something that is vitally important to your case.
When you appoint an accident solicitor to act on your behalf you are guaranteeing that your case will be dealt with professionally and seriously. The purpose of an accident solicitor is not to argue that someone else has been liable for your accident, but on what grounds they were liable.
Take for example a case of an accident at work. A recent client of ours worked within a school and, despite it not being her job, she was asked to move a TV from one room to another. Unable to lift and carry the TV on her own she found a trolley to use to push the TV along the corridor. As she was loading the TV into the trolley it slipped and she crushed her fingers, causing two of them to break.
Our accident solicitors were able to argue that our clients’ employers were in breach of a number of regulations including those involving manual handling (they had failed to provide our client with appropriate training, supervision or equipment).
We won the case
Our Nottinghamshire accident solicitors successfully proved their case and our client was awarded a significant sum of money in recognition of the pain and suffering she had endured as a result of the accident. She was also awarded money to compensate for loss of earnings caused by having to take time off from work and her external freelance position as a pianist.
In most cases individuals would not be able to make such a comprehensive argument themselves in terms of liability for a claim. You can be assured that even if you do decide that you do not wish to use an accident solicitor to argue your case, the third party regarded as being liable will.
As we offer a ‘no win, no fee’ guarantee, there really is nothing to lose by contacting us to start your claim today.
