We help many employees to start personal injury compensation claims in Hounslow when they have been injured in occupational accidents that were caused by their employers. Here we tell you more about how that works.
Starting personal injury compensation claims in Hounslow
We have a unique 30 second test that you can use for free to establish if you are eligible to start a personal injury claim after your occupational accident. You can access it via our Accident Advice Helpline website or via our 24/7 helpline.
You will be asked to complete a few simple questions about your accident and your injury and you will quickly get an answer. We will even give you an estimate of how much money you may get if your claim is successful. This can only ever be a rough guide, however, because all cases are different.
Once this test has established that you can start a claim the decision about whether to actually go ahead or not is yours – our personal injury advisers will help you to make that decision by answering any questions that you have.
The cause of your accident
Personal injury compensation claims in Hounslow following occupational accidents can only succeed if the accident can be shown to be the fault of the employer. As your claim progresses, we may be looking into how the accident occurred and even considering things like risk assessments and equipment safety. Your employer has a duty of care to protect your health, safety and welfare whilst you are at work and if the duty has been breached then you may be able to start a claim.
Many occupational accidents are caused by faulty or inappropriate equipment. The safety of a job often rests on how appropriate the equipment is. It is usually necessary to carry out a risk assessment to establish this.
However, even the safest and most appropriate equipment must be maintained correctly to keep it in good working order and in a safe condition. Regular and appropriate maintenance is often key to maintaining equipment in a safe condition. If you feel that your employer did not do that and that your accident was the result then we will be happy to talk to you about starting a personal injury claim.
