FAQs about working with a workplace personal injury lawyer in Laxey
Have you been hurt at work?
You could be entitled to claim compensation. Many employees don’t realise their legal rights, and so miss out on what could have been a large payout from their employer. At Accident Advice Helpline we’re committed to not only making British workers aware of their right to compensation, but also to helping them act on it. Here, we look at some frequently asked questions about making a workplace compensation claim, and provide some helpful information about working with a personal injury lawyer in Laxey.
Can I make a claim?
The law states that if you’ve been injured within the past three years in an accident caused by someone else’s negligence, you have a right to make a claim. Employers are legally responsible for providing a safe work environment at all times, ensuring all health and safety regulations are adhered to, and that employees are equipped with the right training and apparel to carry out their tasks. Failure to do this can constitute negligence, and could place your employer at fault and therefore responsible for paying you financial compensation.
How can I prove I wasn’t at fault?
To help your solicitor build a strong case, you should be able to provide documentation such as copies of official accident reports, visual evidence such as CCTV footage or photos, or even witness statements. If you can prove that your employer’s negligence has caused you to suffer an injury or develop an industrial illness, you could stand an excellent chance of winning your claim.
Is it expensive to work with a personal injury lawyer in Laxey?
At Accident Advice Helpline we work on a no win no fee* basis. This conditional fee agreement means you don’t have to pay anything to start your claim; in fact, if we don’t win your case, you don’t have to win anything at all.
How long does it take?
Many of our claimants have only had to wait a few weeks between starting their claim and receiving their money, but every case is different. Sometimes employers will prefer to settle out of court, which can expedite the payout, but the time it takes to settle your case will vary depending on the circumstances.
Is Accident Advice Helpline a claims management company?
No – we are a full service law firm with a nationwide network of over 190 solicitors. We handle everything in-house and never outsource any of our legal work.
