Personal injuries can happen anywhere and at any time. If you have had an accident whilst you were at work, or performing the duties associated with your employment, then you could join others who have made personal injury claims in Hampshire.
To find out whether or not you could be entitled to make a claim the easiest thing to do is take Accident Advice Helpline’s 30-second test. By entering some basic information about your accident, and more specifically the injuries you suffered as a result, we can tell you almost immediately whether or not you could be able to make a claim.
Once we know that you are legally entitled to start a claim for compensation then we can also tell you how much your claim could be worth. By using the figures of compensation that other people making similar personal injury claims in Hampshire have received we can give you an idea of what your solicitor could win on your behalf.
The precise amount of compensation you are likely to receive will depend on a number of factors, not least the severity of your injuries. One finger injury can be very different from another. Some personal injury claims in Hampshire relating to finger injuries take the form of severely bruised fingers, or maybe even a broken finger. Whilst painful and no doubt disrupting, these injuries do eventually heal and in most cases do not have any long term impact on the victim. However, in other cases it may be that a finger has to be amputated. As you would expect the amount of compensation awarded for the latter is likely to be higher than in the former cases.
Types of accidents at work
When making personal injury claims in Hampshire against employers, it is the job of your solicitor to establish whether or not your employer is likely to be responsible for the accident. If we believe that your employer is likely to be responsible then we will assist you in making a claim against them. It will then be up to your employer’s solicitors to try to prove that they were not responsible, or if you played some part in the accident.
Our solicitor’s will do all they can to provide the necessary evidence against your employer. It may be that your accident was caused as a result of faulty machinery. We will need to have access to information regarding when that machinery was last inspected, and if any faults or problems had been noticed and reported, or dealt with. It could be that you were injured because you were not appropriately trained, in which case we will need to see what risk assessments were performed and if any training needs had been identified.
