Being confused about what to do after your accident is natural. You’re likely to have plenty of questions about who pays for compensation in Powys, whether or not you might even have a claim and how much it costs; but you are not the only one.
The first time you ever experience a serious accident and injury, you’re likely to go through a whole range of emotions. There will be the obvious physical and emotional pain, followed by a range of questions surrounding your recovery and treatment, and then whether or not you were at fault.
Every employer has a duty of care to their staff, ensuring that they have a safe working environment in which to perform their roles. Working is about far more than hitting targets, it’s about ensuring that people can do their duties safely too and when they are not given protective equipment or specialist materials to keep them safe it could have disastrous repercussions.
Innocent workers could sustain serious, long-term injuries that leave then unable to do the things they love, and to go to work to earn a living, and they may be entitled to make a claim for compensation.
So who pays for compensation in Powys?
Of course, this then raises the questions of who pays for compensation in Powys because some people feel bad about claiming against their bosses – even if they are entitled to do so – because they don’t want to compromise the financial stability of the business.
However, as one of the solicitors at Accident Advice Helpline would be able to explain in more detail, it would be the insurance company who pays the compensation settlement rather than the firm. It would, therefore, have no effect on the company bank account, just the insurance premium.
If you would like to find out if you might be entitled to make a claim you can do so by taking our free online test. This will enable you to put your mind at rest in this respect, even if you are still unsure on whether or not to actually make a claim, and it takes just 30-seconds to complete.
After taking the test, you are under no obligation to go ahead with a claim if you are eligible to do so, meaning that you can take your time to consider whether or not to claim. You have up to three years from the date of the incident in which to make your claim.
What happens then?
If you decide that you would like to go ahead with your claim for compensation then we’ll assign a dedicated solicitor to your case and they will inform you of any evidence or supporting information that we might need to get the claim underway, such as a medical assessment.
They will also be able to answer any questions that you might have, and to provide an estimate on the minimum and maximum potential payout that you might receive. Every settlement is tailored to reflect the severity of the accident, injuries and repercussions to ensure that each claimant gets exactly what they are entitled to.
If you would like more information on who pays for compensation or if you have any questions at all, don’t hesitate to contact one of our friendly solicitors on 0800 689 0500 or if you’re using a mobile call 0333 500 0993.
