The simple fact is, if you have been injured in an accident, you have every right to seek compensation if you were not to blame. At Accident Advice Helpline, we can help you follow through on your legal rights so that you receive the money you are due. If you are contemplating making a Pontypool accident at work claim, there are some things to keep in mind as you do:
You have a legal right to make a claim
In accordance with UK law, you have a right to seek compensation if you have been injured in an accident that was caused by negligence of another party. If you were not in any way to blame, you should not be made to pay for the repercussions physically as well as financially.
You could receive a substantial amount for your injuries
The amount you could be awarded will depend on a number of factors, but serious or permanent injuries can result in thousands of pounds being awarded. To find out how much you could receive specifically, fill in our online claims calculator. Using this tool, you can get a quick quote in under a minute. Alternatively, you can call our helpline to get connected with a claims adviser, who will go over every aspect of your accident in detail to provide a more accurate quote.
You may not have to go to court
If your employer has clearly been responsible for causing your accident, it is often the case that they would prefer to settle out of court. This can mean not having to attend a hearing to make a Pontypool accident at work claim, but still being able to receive the full amount you are due.
You don’t have to pay legal fees upfront for your Pontypool accident at work claim
Accident Advice Helpline works on a no-win, no-fee basis, so there is nothing payable initially to get your claim started. You can get started with a solicitor without having to worry about finding a deposit in order to do so.
There is a time limit in place
You have up to three years from the date of your accident in which to make a claim, so don’t put it off. Call today on 0800 689 0500. From your mobile – 0333 500 0993.
