Whether you’ve broken a bone in a fall or suffered a head injury in a car crash, if the accident in which you were injured was someone else’s fault, you should be entitled to claim compensation for your injuries. Get in touch today if you need to make an office accident claim in West Sussex.
The first step in making a claim for compensation is to find a lawyer or law firm to represent you. That way you can get the advice and support that you need for a successful outcome.
Making an office accident claim in West Sussex
A quick search of the internet will reveal a whole host of law firms promising to help you make a personal injury claim.
Though some local West Sussex accident solicitors may have experience in the field, you’re much more likely to find the expertise and resources that you need at a national law firm like Accident Advice Helpline.

Understanding what kind of accidents you can claim for
Whether you find a local West Sussex accident solicitor to represent you or choose Accident Advice Helpline, the types of accidents that you can claim for will be the same.
In general, anyone who has suffered an injury as the result of an accident that wasn’t their fault can make a claim. Though you may need to prove that your injury required medical attention or that it affected you long term.
Claiming within the time limit
Another important factor to consider when thinking about making a claim is the time that has elapsed since the accident happened. In most cases, the victims of accidents need to make a claim for compensation within three years.
However, this time limit may not apply in cases of medical negligence where the patient was under 18 at the time and in cases of industrial illness where the effects may not be seen for years after the incident.
Preparing for your case
Once you’ve chosen a law firm and checked that your case is eligible for compensation, the next thing you’ll need to do is prepare your case and gather your evidence.
In most cases, your lawyer should be able to advise you on exactly what you need to do, and you can always call our free 24/7 advice line if you need any more information. Talk to us today to find out more about making an office accident claim in West Sussex.
