If you have been seriously injured in an Oldbury accident at work, the last thing you need is money problems. The solicitors here at Accident Advice Helpline understand the devastating impact an accident can have, leaving you unable to earn a living and unable to seek the treatment you need to speed up your recovery.
How we can help you with your Oldbury accident at work claim
When you contact us via our Freephone helpline or 30-second test, we will arrange for your case to be assessed by one of our trained claims advisers. They will provide you with all the information you need to understand the way in which we will work with you to ensure that you receive full and fair compensation from your employer.
Our 100% ‘no win, no fee’ solicitors will send a letter of claim to your employer and their insurer, granting them 21 days to acknowledge receipt of the letter and then a further three months to carry out their investigations and determine whether they wish to accept or dispute your claim.
While awaiting their response, we will conduct our own investigations into your Oldbury accident at work, which may include sending you off for medical examinations and collecting statements from eyewitnesses to your accident. If you have suffered serious injuries, we may need to obtain several medical reports, as our medical expert may be unable to provide a reliable prognosis after carrying out just a single examination.
We will secure you the maximum possible compensation for your Oldbury accident at work claim
Once we have all the evidence we require, we will calculate the value of your claim. We will do this by comparing your claim against Judicial Studies Board Guidelines and recent court cases.
If your employer accepts fault, we will enter into negotiations with them with the aim of settling your claim out of court. The negotiations process may take some time and as a result, we may seek to persuade your employer’s insurer to pay out for your treatment and rehabilitation costs while your claim is ongoing.
It is important to remember that the purpose of compensation is to put you in the position you would have been in, if the Oldbury accident at work had not happened. Clearly, no amount of compensation will ever make up for the pain and suffering you have experienced but the financial compensation we can help you to secure will at least provide you with some assistance. Call free on 0800 689 0500 or 0333 500 0993 from a mobile phone for free, no-obligation advice about making a claim.
