It is an unfortunate fact that accidents occur far too frequently in workplaces in Pontypridd. To safeguard you against accidents, your employer should comply with the Health and Safety at Work Act, which sets out their responsibilities for maintaining a safe and secure working environment. If you sustain an injury in a Pontypridd accident at work and you feel that your employer may have failed to follow health and safety regulations, you may therefore be able to claim compensation through Accident Advice Helpline.
How we can help you with your Pontypridd accident at work claim
To find out whether you are eligible to make a claim, please call our Freephone helpline and speak to one of our friendly claims advisor’s. They will be happy to assess your accident and offer you free, no-obligation advice on your legal rights.
To assess your claim, we will need you to provide us with the following details:
• The date, time and location of your accident
• The circumstances surrounding your accident
• The details of your injuries, including your medical diagnosis and treatment
• The contact details of any witnesses to your accident
Once we have taken these details from you, we will be able to determine whether your claim is likely to succeed. If we feel you have a strong case, we will offer you the chance to hire one of our experienced Pontypridd accident at work solicitors on a 100% no win, no fee basis. They will then send your employer a letter of claim and grant them 21 days in which to respond to the letter and then a further three months in which to investigate your claim. In their reply, they must say whether they wish to accept or deny liability for your accident.
If your employer accepts liability, we will value your claim and enter into negotiations with your employer to try to settle the matter out of court. If your employer denies liability, or your employer refuses to provide you with a reasonable compensation settlement, we may advise you to take your claim through the courts.
If you decide to take your Pontypridd accident at work claim to court, your case will be passed to a judge. That judge will then look into your claim and determine whether you deserve to receive compensation. The thought of going to court may seem daunting, but at this stage of the process, we will have prepared your case in great detail and collected all the evidence we need to persuade the judge to award you the maximum possible compensation settlement.
